Royal Caribbean's stunningly beautiful "The Navigator of the Seas"


The land of the Bible. You've read about it, now it's time to see it with your own eyes! And once you do, you'll simply never be the same. Come with us and see your Bible come alive in the experience of a lifetime. View the short video above for a great summary of this wonderful trip! ~ Bill Perkins

With Compass, we don't send you to the Holyland, we take you!

Our 20 years of escorting groups through the magnificent Biblelands has given us in-depth knowledge and experience—critical in choosing the very best destinations, accommodations, schedules and guides to make your trip to God's special place on earth the best it can be.

And from the time your feet touch Israeli soil, your black and white Bible will come alive in living color. "Seeing" your Bible ties it all together!

From Joppa, Caeserea, Mt. Carmel, Nazareth and the Valley of Armageddon on the first day, to communion at the Empty Tomb on the last day, the Biblical sites in Israel will be forever etched in your mind. (Scroll down for the itinerary)

(Below- the Empty Tomb always makes you smile!)

But that's only the beginning!

After 7 full mind-blowing days in Israel you have the option of flying to Rome for a 7 day Holyland Cruise on Royal Caribbean's stunning Navigator of the Seas.

We've designed a unique Mediterranean itinerary with our own private guides, buses and schedule that allows you to experience up close the forever-impacting Biblical sites of Rome, Ephesus, Athens and Corinth, plus two fun days in Sicily and Crete. (Scroll down for the itinerary)

And there's even more!

To finish your trip with a bang, you have the option of adding four nights in FlorenceTuscanyPisa and Venice as a memorable "Taste of Italy" as a post-cruise option. (Scroll down for the itinerary)

With all these options you can choose the cruise, and/or Israel, and/or Italy,  just the cruise, or just Israel… mix and match your perfect itinerary!

Best of all the Navigator of the Seas is in a class by itself. The ship's interior has a long, stunning 4-story high promenade with sidewalk cafes rimmed with interior staterooms with a view from above. (See pic below)

So make plans to join us for a trip with a lifetime of memories — a wonderfully flexible trip with many options!

We've been taking people to the Holyland for 20 years, and have learned a lot about what makes the best trip ever. All your hotels, guides and site visits are set to match your physical and spiritual expectations. It's definitely the trip of a lifetime!!
