We might be interested in a Cunard cruise called "Holy Land Explorer" next year. Although we have traveled quite a bit in Europe, we have never taken a cruise. This itinerary ends with two days at sea in order to return to Rome where the cruise originates. Is it possible to leave a cruise prior to the final port? Are penalties charged or would we just forfeit what we paid for days we don't use?
We will be looking for similar itineraries from other lines; the ports that interest us are Rome, Athens, Kusadasi (for Ephesus) and Ashdod (for Jerusalem) in case anyone can suggest another cruise.
Oh and if you are wondering, 3 days at sea with no ports is too many for us. We'd like to eliminate the two consecutive days at the end and spend more time in Rome prior to the cruise. Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
