Cruise departures from near Tel Aviv

We will be concluding a Holy Land tour towards the end of October and our final stop will be Tel Aviv. We would like to continue with a short Mediterranean cruise. What is the port nearest to Tel Aviv from where me may find an international cruise ship departing. Thank you.

Ashdod about 35km south of Tel-Aviv or Haifa about 100km north. The most of tourist ships are in Haifa.

Cruises dock in Ashdod and Haifa. If you like a roundtrip cruise check Mano Sapanut.

For a big ship, I recommend Athens or Istanbul. Each is a short flight from Tel Aviv.

The Israeli cruise line departs with weekly cruises from Haifa. There is also he MSC line that offers sevwral cruise out of Haifa. Ashdod is closer to Tel Aviv but not necessarily with cruise departures for Israelis but rather docking of foreign cruise lines that do not offer departures from Israel in midcruise.

Also, Thomson Cruises has departures from Limassol, Cyprus, which is closer than Athens or Istanbul, at the end of October.
