Information and advice for researching and booking a Nile Cruise Holidays. Online information and inquiry, telephone booking.
Nile cruise Holidays booked as a package holiday can be good value. Seven nights on a boat plus ﬂights can be much cheaper than ﬂights alone booked independently. The downside is that you will be on a big boat with hundreds 0f other tourists. If you have the budget it’s worth paying more for a smaller boat with an agency.
2-Nile Cruise Holidays Itineraries
There are two basic itineraries. The most popular is seven nights from Luxor to Aswan and back again. The other option is to sail one way spending two to three nights on board depending on which direction you sail. There’s also a Lake Nasser cruise, which takes three, four or eight days, depending on whether you depart from Aswan or Abu Simbel
3-What Will I See?
Sailing from Luxor, the boat stops at Edfu and Kom Ombo before spending two nights at Aswan, where you visit Philae and have the option of paying for an extra excursion to Abu Simbel. The return leg visits Edfu and, on docking at Luxor, includes a full-day’s sightseeing at Karnak and the West Bank.
4-What to Wear?
In addition to light clothes for sightseeing it’s worth bringing something slightly more formal for dinner, although none of the boats require jacket and tie. It can get chilly at night on the river so bring something a bit warmer for a late-night drink on deck.
Three meals a day are included on all Nile Cruise Holidays, with packed lunches for excursions. Meals are buffet, mixing Egyptian with international dishes- something for everyone. The quality of the fare depends on the boat, but at the higher end it is very good indeed.
Most Nile Cruises have a bar or lounge and will host a galabiyya party, where all are encouraged to dress in the traditional Egyptian men’s robe (sold onboard). Some boats feature local musicians, while the bigger boats have a disco-party every night.
All Nile Cruises have their own tour guides to shepherd tourists around the ancient sites and answer questions. The more up market boats have trained Egyptologists who also deliver lectures about the sites that will be visited on the following day.
For the best choice of Nile cruises go to a specialist such as www.journeytoegypt.com. Prices are higher at peak times, which include Christmas, New Year and Easter. When booking, avoid berths on the lower decks, which offer the poorest views.
