Ferry: Alexandria to So Europe?

I'm considering creative ways to get from Alexandria to Southern Europe at the end of November.  Probably to the Mediterranean Coast of France or Spain.  I've tried the searches for ferries but it appears there are NONE operating into/ out of Alexandria. 

Really?  A city of 6M people and no water connection across the Med? 

Can anyone please confirm my findings, or point me to a company or web resource with ferry information?

Many thanks.
