Odyssey Crew Visits Petra

Julian Simpson, crew purser of Seabourn Odyssey, organized a crew excursion to Petra last month during Seabourn Odyssey's full-day stay at Aqaba, Jordan. After a drive up the King's Highway, the group set off down the Siq, a narrow, twisting canyon between towering stone cliffs. Just when it seems you are going nowhere, you turn one last corner and there is this building, the so-called "Treasury" looming dead ahead. Thank you, Julian, for sending us this beautiful photograph!

Petra remains one of our favorite shore excursions. To trudge along a narrow path flanked by towering cliffs, then suddenly arrive at a courtyard filled with camels and their drivers in colorful costumes wandering among giant structures carved out of stone --- it rivaled any movie set we'd ever seen! The experience is so iconic and remarkable that it really defies description. I am so glad the Seabourn staff had the opportunity to see this.
