Aqaba, Jordan

  • Need to Know
  • VIEW CRUISES

Aqaba's history dates back to 4,000 BC and was once a key Roman port. With year-round sun, you can enjoy watersports and explore the coral reefs of the Red Sea that teem with brightly coloured fishes. Magnificent Petra, an ancient city carved out of stone, and one of the World's Seven Wonders, is nearby. Back in Aqaba, visit the 13th-century castle fortress, archaeological museum and mosque and enjoy a traditional lamb dish with yogurt and rice accompanied by mint tea or sweet Turkish coffee.

A few of the city of Port Aqaba, Jordan.

Aqaba (for Petra), Jordan

Jordan may appear at first glance like a vast, empty land, but its territory has been inhabited for 6,000 years and it is home to an enormous number of historic sites and natural wonders. Most of them are easily accessible just off of the King’s Highway, which stretches from the capital, Amman, down to Aqaba on the Red Sea. As the country’s only port, Aqaba has long been linked to the legend of Lawrence of Arabia, or T.E. Lawrence, and to the famous 1962 film by Sir David Lean. The massive Aqaba flagpole is, at 131 meters (430 feet), one of the tallest in the world and commemorates the Great Arab Revolt of 1916 against the Ottoman Empire in which Lawrence played a key role. Aqaba is a decidedly quieter place now than in the heyday of revolt, whether one comes for the deepwater dive spots, duty-free shopping or its new high-end residential and resort district. Old Aqaba, with a fort that dates from the era of Christian crusaders, continues to be a wonderfully atmospheric neighborhood. There, after a long day in the desert heat, visitors can seek out a Turkish bath for a massage and scrub or take a break from exploring at any number of cafés that overlook the port.

Aqaba Cruise

Aqaba Cruise

Following the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia

When you disembark from your MSC Jordan cruise in  Aqaba , you can enjoy its idyllic, sunny setting on the shores of the  Red Sea , at the country’s southernmost tip. From something of a dowdy backwater, in the last decade or so  Aqaba  has transformed itself into a pleasant leisure destination. Hotels at all grades are springing up in the town as well as at luxury waterfront developments up and down the coast.

The city center of Aqaba forms a dense network of streets and alleys clustered just behind the beach road (called the “ Corniche ”).

   

Some of the  best diving and snorkeling in the world  is centered on the  unspoiled coral reefs  that hug the coast just south of the town – an engaging contrast with the nearby desert attractions of  Petra  and  Wadi Rum .

Don't miss out on an unforgettable  shore excursion  to Petra . Tucked away in a remote valley basin in the heart of southern Jordan’s  Shara mountains  and shielded from the outside world behind an impenetrable barrier of rock, Petra remains wreathed in mystery.

Since a Western adventurer stumbled on the site in 1812, it has fired imaginations, its  grandeur and dramatic setting  pushing it into the realms of legend. Today, it’s almost as if time has literally drawn a veil over the once-great city, which grew wealthy enough on the caravan trade to challenge the might of Rome: two millennia of wind and rain have blurred the sharp edges of its ornate classical facades and rubbed away at its soft sandstone to expose vivid bands of colour beneath, putting the whole scene into soft focus.

Cruises from/to Aqaba, Jordan

Aqaba, jordan cruise port.

  • A great location for utter relaxation by the sea would be at the Berenice Beach Club . This private beach club is perfect for snorkeling, diving, yachting, water sports or just pure relaxation in the heart of the cruise port of Aqaba. Watch the amazing sunset while lounging on your beach chair and taking in the calmness of the atmosphere. The hospitality of the staff and well organized services will add to your awesome experience.  
  • Enjoy the mysteries of the deserts and connect with nature in this exciting and challenging trip of a lifetime on the Wadi Araba Desert . As it rises to heights of 450 meters and dips to less than 400 meters below sea level, the mountains will instantly become breathtaking and the sand dunes will change color periodically. Stop for some well-needed rest in one of the camps between the mountains and share memories with other sojourners.  
  • Make sure you have the whole day to explore the majestic beauty of Petra in order to fully appreciate its past and present significance. Once you enter through a long narrow stone passage, you will encounter its half-built, half carved architectural treasures. There aren’t enough words to describe its captivating nature as you ride on horse backs, camels or horse drawn carriages around the 2,000 year-old structures built into soaring salmon-pink sandstone.

River cruises in egypt and jordan reviews.

Tour was well organized! The guide for the Egypt portion was very experienced The guide for Jordan was just ok. There were many occasions when he could be more organized. He didn’t explain what to expect what the plans were for the next day. Much confusion resulted from that. Many things look disorganized The boat cruise was terrible. Frequent problems with steady water supply , Not one day was without problems. The boat was not well maintained. The highlights of the tour were the pyramids, Abu Simbel. The hot air ballooning was a highlight despite reservations from the tour organizers
My wife and I had an amazing experience on our honeymoon, despite being experienced travelers in our 40s who typically don't opt for guided tours. However, we highly recommend it for Egypt, Jordan, and Cairo. Although these destinations are perfectly safe, having a guide from Vacations to Go handle everything made our journey much smoother. They are local experts, serving as the "on the ground" tour company, and their proficiency significantly enhanced our experience while alleviating potential frustrations. Booking a trip with them is a favor to yourself – the level of service is top-notch. We spent three weeks exploring, and the sights were so captivating that we wished we didn't have to return home. It's a fantastic vacation choice, especially for Western travelers concerned about safety.
We truly had the most magnificent Jordan and Egypt 12-day vacation, everything ran seamlessly and everybody involved, from the airport representatives to drivers, security, and historical guides were all wonderful, expert, and friendly individuals. In Jordan, our driver Ali was amazing – his suggestion to stop at Lebanese House Restaurant between Jerash and Petra was great, probably one of our best meals throughout the trip, our guide at Petra, was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, flexible, and went out of his way to make the tour interesting to all of us

Aqaba Jordan Port Guide

This ancient port city bustles with trade traffic and an undeniable energy, connecting Jordan with other parts of the world. Aqaba is home to many resorts and beachy activities like windsurfing and snorkeling. Scuba divers will call Aqaba their paradise, where the warmth of the water and crystal visibility make for incredible Red Sea wreck diving. 

While stopped in Aqaba on an India cruise , you’ll find historic and cultural activities around every corner. Take a trip beyond Aqaba to the ancient ruins of Petra, an archaeological icon of pink stone that has long been Jordan’s most famous site. Don’t miss Wadi Rum, a famously protected desert where dunes, mountains, and wilderness collide. Stand in awe of the site where Lawrence of Arabia was said to have passed through in the early 20th century. Beyond the natural wonders of this part of Jordan, you’ll find a truly warm-natured city where tradition collides with modern life on your Aqaba cruise.

Top sights & attractions for cruises to aqaba.

You may not have heard of the ancient ruins of Petra before, but you’d definitely know them at first sight. Featured in movie franchises and recognizable for its rose-colored stone, Petra was first occupied by human beings nearly 10,000 years ago, where inhabitants carved the elaborate Treasury into columns, temples, and alters. Tour this UNESCO World Heritage site during your time in Aqaba for an afternoon in the desert you’ll never forget.

Ever wanted to effortlessly float on your back? You can while in the waters of the Dead Sea, one of the saltiest bodies of water in the entire world. You’ll need to plan a day around this, however, since the mouth of the Dead Sea is a three-hour drive from Aqaba.

Arguably, Wadi Rum is the most famous site in Jordan. Head to this natural wonder, called the “Valley of the Moon,” where your admission fee goes toward keeping this incredible site protected. Ride camels into the desert wilderness and take in the chasms and mountain ranges during a half-day excursion. Learn about the culture of the Bedouins and enjoy an Arabian afternoon tea ceremony.

Aqaba Aquarium

Animal and marine lovers must see the species of fish that inhabit the Red Sea and the waters of Jordan. You’ll learn what to expect from wildlife when you swim or snorkel the area and discover the coral system of Aqaba, too. The aquarium is connected to the Aqaba Marine Science Station, a perfect activity for an educational afternoon in Aqaba.

Learn More About Aqaba Shore Excursions

Top things to do in aqaba, snorkel and scuba in the red sea.

Snorkeling in the Red Sea is an essential experience on a cruise to Aqaba, Jordan, where colorful reefs and vibrant sea life miraculously thrive in salty waters. Many of the species here can’t be found in any other body of water in the world. Wrecked tanks and cargo ships contrast against bright coral, making this a feast for divers’ eyes. 

See the Ruins of Ayla

Close your eyes and imagine what ancient Aqaba must have looked like thousands of years ago. These ruins were once the site of Aqaba’s central, ancient port. Seeing them offers a step back in time and makes for a quick excursion on the way to other destinations in downtown Aqaba.

Explore Aqaba Fort

In the 12th century, the Crusaders built what are now ruins of the Aqaba Fort, and today you can see these ruins before learning more about the history of this region of Jordan at the Aqaba Archaeological Museum. History buffs on one of our cruises to Jordan shouldn’t miss out on an educational afternoon at the ruins.

Unearth the World’s Oldest Church

Near the ruins of Ayla is a site that scholars consider the oldest Christian church in the world, built in the third century. While you’re touring the other ruins, this church is a must for history buffs and those interested in early Christian artifacts.

Top Food and Drink Spots Near the Aqaba Cruise Port

Aqaba’s culinary scene has a variety of must-try dishes that personify Jordan’s rich history. Of course, there are classics like hummus, falafel, and shawarma which have quickly risen in popularity all over the world for their freshness, but Aqaba cuisine also has tons of surprises. The coffee and tea is different than in other parts of the world. Their special method of preparation makes them more bitter than their Western equivalents. Try kunafa, a traditional filo pastry with delicious, melty goat cheese inside. A filo pastry filled with spinach is another popular variation. Another must-have? The official breakfast of Jordan, called foul, which consists of savory fava beans mashed into a liquid-like dipping sauce with olive oil, lemon, and garlic. Served with hot flatbread, it’s regularly offered as a side dish for every meal in Jordan. 

Culture & History of the Aqaba Cruise Port

Aqaba practically opened the country of Jordan to international trade and commerce along the Silk Road, dating back to the occupation of the Ottoman empire during the 14th century. The Turks held control of Jordan until World War I, when various Western nations took over. Eventually, Jordan gained independence in 1946. Today, Aqaba plays a significant part in the Jordanian economy as a central trading port and tourist destination, thanks to incredible sights like Wadi Rum, Petra, and the beautiful Red Sea. 

The culture of Aqaba is heavily influenced by the Bedouin population of Jordan and the surrounding regions, specifically the national dance, called the dabke. While on one of our cruises to Jordan, make a point to see live music featuring traditional instruments like the shababa and the Jordanian bagpipes, gerbah. Music is deeply woven into the fabric of Jordan’s history and culture. The people of Jordan value respect and politeness. Be aware that dressing modestly is hugely important during your time in Aqaba, which will show locals that you respect their traditions.

Aqaba Port Facilities & Location

The port of Aqaba is a commercial port, so it’s more focused on trading and unloading than cruise and tourism traffic. You won’t find a terminal or tourism information desk here, but there is a free shuttle service that takes cruise passengers and others to downtown Aqaba, which is about a 15-minute ride away.

Transportation in Aqaba

There are a few main ways to get around while on your cruise to Aqaba, Jordan. Taxis are plentiful on the ground in the city, and you’ll find them easy to hail and generally inexpensive. There are the standard yellow taxis as well as green and blue cars. The public bus system is also efficient for riders, and a one-way ride costs less than one Jordanian Dinar. Note that the desert climate can make walking for long periods difficult. Be sure to schedule regular breaks for water and rest while you’re exploring Aqaba, particularly if you’re visiting during the hotter months.

Shopping Near the Aqaba Cruise Port

Because the Port of Aqaba is a commercial port, Jordan cruise passengers can’t do much shopping here. Venture downtown for the bazaars and restaurants using the complimentary shuttle system at the port. Due to the hot climate, shops regularly close from 2 to 6 pm to escape the heat of the day.

Local Currency & Tipping Customs

The official currency is the Jordanian Dinar (JD). Locals will pronounce this “jay-dee” in conversation, so be aware you’ll probably hear that while shopping or bargaining with vendors. Credit cards are commonly used in Jordan, and there are ATMs throughout the city of Aqaba. The US dollar is commonly accepted when you pay with cash as well. Tip around 10% for guides, taxi drivers, and restaurant servers if there isn’t a service charge already included in your bill. Generally, tipping isn’t a big practice in Jordan.

Aqaba (Petra), Jordan

Description.

The port of Aqaba has been an important strategic and commercial center for over three millennia. Originally called Elath, the home of the Edomites became in Roman times a trading center where goods from as far away as China found entry to Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. Today Aqaba is Jordan's only seaport, and the city serves as an intriguing gateway for travelers. In the surrounding desert lies the lost city of Petra - a city that may date to 6,000 B.C. - and Wadi Rum, where an English soldier mystic named T.E. Lawrence found his destiny as "Lawrence of Arabia." Perched at the apex of the Gulf of Aqaba, Aqaba offers internationally renowned diving opportunities and the richest marine life in the entire Red Sea. The old fortress on the waterfront dates to the 14th-century. Passengers should drink only bottled water while ashore. Please respect local customs and dress accordingly, avoiding exposed shoulders and knees.

More about Aqaba (Petra), Jordan Points of Interest

The dramatic entrance to the 'Lost City of Petra' is a striking, narrow gorge that winds through towering rock. The canyon boasts prehistoric carvings, and the remnants of a monumental arch.

Khazneh, also known as the 'Treasury', is an ancient tomb carved into the cliff face in Petra. Local legend suggests that treasure was hidden in the urn at the top of the cliff.

Deep in the 'Lost City of Petra', this Roman Theater, which seats 3,000, was built by the Nabataean in the 2nd century. The entire seating area was hand-carved out of the mountain.

The spectacular Royal Tombs in Petra are carved into the face of Jebel Khubtha, a sandstone mountain. The Royal Tombs consist of the Urn tomb, the Corinthian tomb, and the three-storied Palace tomb.

Wadi Rum, located in the south of Jordan, is also known as the 'Valley of the Moon'. This protected desert reserve has been inhabited since prehistoric times, and is now home to the Bedouin.

Aqaba Museum houses a wide collection of magnificent artifacts, including coins from Iraq and Egypt, ceramics from the excavations of Ayla (Old Aqaba), and 8th-century Islamic stone tablets.

The main street of Petra once boasted numerous stately columns along its route. At the end of the street is the partially-restored Qasr Al Bint, the only freestanding structure in Petra thought to have been the main place of worship in the Nabataean City.

Nestled on the sands overlooking the Red Sea the resort boasts four swimming pools, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a whirlpool, and direct access to a 498-foot-long private beach.

Gaza hostage rescue latest: 210 killed in IDF operation, Hamas says - as it claims some hostages were also killed

Israel announces it has rescued four hostages on Saturday in an operation that took place in Gaza. The Hamas-run health ministry says 210 people have been killed by Israeli operations in the area of the rescue.

  • Some hostages killed during rescue mission - Hamas
  • Israel confirms soldier died during rescue
  • Hamas suggests it could take more prisoners
  • Who are the rescued hostages?
  • Analysis:  Hostages rescue will be cathartic for Israelis - but Netanyahu is under pressure and infuriating the US
  • Live reporting by Jess Sharp  and (earlier)  Josephine Franks  

A missile has struck a cargo ship in the Gulf of Aden in a suspected attack by Houthi rebels in Yemen.

The British military's UK Maritime Trade Operations centre reported the attack on the Antigua and Barbuda-flagged ship.

Private security firm Ambrey said the missile hit the ship's forward station, starting a fire that the crew were able to put out. 

A second missile missed and people "on board small boats in the vicinity opened fire on the ship during the incident",  Ambrey added. No one was hurt onboard.

Suspicion for the attack fell on the Houthis. The rebels did not immediately claim responsibility.

The Houthis have been targeting shipping throughout the Red Sea corridor during the Israel-Hamas war in the Gaza Strip.

They say the attacks are aimed at stopping the war and supporting the Palestinians, although the attacks often target vessels that have nothing to do with the conflict.

The Houthis have launched more than 50 attacks on shipping, killing three sailors, seizing one vessel and sinking another since November, according to the US Maritime Administration.

A US-led airstrike campaign, supported by Britain, has targeted the Houthis since January, with a series of strikes.

Al Aqsa hospital is dealing with "back-to-back mass casualties", Doctors Without Borders has said. 

The international organisation, which is also known as MSF, has been helping medical staff in Gaza throughout the conflict with Israel. 

In a series of posts on X, it said there had been "intense bombings by Israeli forces" this morning, leaving the hospital in central Gaza treating an "overwhelming number of severely injured patients".

"It's a nightmare at al Aqsa. There have been back-to-back mass casualties as densely populated areas are bombed," said Samuel Johann, the organisation's coordinator in Gaza.

"It's way beyond what anyone could deal with in a functional hospital, let alone with the scarce resources we have here."

Another member of staff, Chris Hook, said doctors were dealing with patients suffering from multiple major open fractures and several unconscious children. 

As news broke that four Israeli hostages had been rescued from Hamas captivity, an Israel Defence Forces spokesman released a video statement, detailing how they were retrieved. 

Noa Argamani, 25, Almog Meir Jan, 21, Andrey Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 40, spent a total of 246 days trapped in Gaza. 

Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said they were found alive and well as a result of a "his risk, complex mission". 

"This is what we do in Israel - we risk our lives to save the lives of our hostages," he added. 

You can watch his address below... 

At al Aqsa Martyrs hospital in central Gaza has been dealing with waves of injured Palestinians. 

Many have filtered in following strikes carried out by Israel earlier today. 

The Hamas-led government has said at least 210 people were killed during Israel's rescue operation, which saved four hostages from captivity. 

This figure was later confirmed by Dr Khalil Al-Dakran, the spokesman for al Aqsa Martyrs Hospital.

An Israeli minister has hit back at European Union official Josep Borrell for condemning Israel's rescue operation as a "massacre of civilians". 

Eli Cohen told the EU's high representative for foreign policy that he should be condemning Hamas. 

"Shame on you," he said.

Mr Borrell had earlier posted on X saying: "Reports from Gaza of another massacre of civilians are appalling.

"We condemn this in the strongest terms. The bloodbath must end immediately." 

He also suggested the path to peace was in a three stage plan put forward by US President Joe Biden. 

Under the idea, the first phase would consist of a six-week ceasefire, a withdrawal of Israeli forces from all populated areas of Gaza and the release of a number of hostage in exchange for the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners.

The second phase would see the release of all remaining living hostages and a withdrawal from Gaza by Israeli forces. 

The third phase calls for the start of a major reconstruction of the devastated enclave. 

This is the moment two of the four freed hostages arrived back in Israel. 

Almog Meir Jan can be briefly seen on the right and Andrey Kozlov is on the left. 

The pair touched down in a helicopter after being rescued from Hamas captivity in Nuseirat earlier today. 

Iran appears to have blamed the 200 reported deaths of Palestinians after an Israeli operation to free four hostages on "inaction" by world governments and the United Nations.

According to Reuters, it was not immediately clear whether the hostage rescues and an Israeli air assault were part of the same operation.

Both took place in central Gaza's al-Nuseirat, a densely built-up area.

Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said: "These horrific and shocking crimes are the result of the inaction of governments and responsible international bodies, including the United Nations Security Council, in the face of eight months of war crimes and violations by the Zionist regime (Israel)."

The number of Palestinians killed was 210, according to Dr Khalil Al-Dakran, spokesman for Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir Al-Balah.

A further 400 people have been wounded, the doctor added.

The foreign secretary has echoed the prime minister (see previous post) in saying that the rescue of Israeli hostages will be a "huge relief to their families".

In a statement on X, Lord Cameron has called for a ceasefire agreement to "secure the release of all hostages and end the fighting".

He added: "My thoughts [are] also with [the] families of those still captive, and all the innocent lives affected by the conflict." 

Rishi Sunak has said it is a "huge relief" that four Israeli hostages have been freed.

The prime minister said they had been through an "unimaginable ordeal" and it was "heart-warming to see the pictures of them reunited with their families".

He added on X: "We will continue to strive towards an end to the fighting as well as safety and security for all."

The Lebanese militant group Hezbollah says it has fired Falaq 2 rockets at a military command centre in northern Israel.

A security source said it was the first time the group had used that type of rocket after firing the Falaq 1 on dozens of previous occasions, Reuters reported.

Hezbollah said it was acting in retaliation.

Lebanon's state news agency, NNA, said two people were killed in an Israeli airstrike on the outskirts of the southern Lebanese town of Aitaroun. 

The Israeli military said its soldiers identified a Hezbollah militant in the Aitaroun area.

An Israeli aircraft conducted an airstrike that hit the individual, it added.
