Nile River Cruise Reviews

“We had never cruised before but, after doing some research, were convinced that this was the best way to visit Egypt, and we weren’t disappointed. The Nile makes sense of the history and civilisation, plus there is something so special and sensible about returning to the ship and the cool water after a day sightseeing ancient artefacts in the heat. The comfort levels were top-notch, which is essential in the Egyptian climate.”

Peter and Janice, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

“This is our third Nile cruise. It’s such a long river that there’s always a new itinerary with different locations we haven’t seen. We think three Nile cruises are the bare minimum, as there is just so much to see and take in. We have had a totally land-based holiday in Egypt, but cruising the Nile beats it hands down.”

Don and Judy, Leek, Staffordshire

“This cruise was a surprise significant anniversary present for my parents, so I was a little nervous as they’re not great sunseekers, and I wasn’t going! What’s the phrase…no worries? Well, I needn’t have worried. My parents are seasoned travellers, but this was their first cruise, and they were really impressed with the level of service and comfort on board. No one can fail to be amazed at the itinerary, and what’s on offer, it’s breathtaking and speaks for itself.”

Giles, Ascot

“A bit of a risk choosing this as a family holiday, but it paid off as the kids were entertained and entranced, and there’s plenty on board ship to keep them occupied when they’d had enough of pyramids. The scenery and sights are so spectacular it even kept young teens away from their screens! Not an obvious choice for a family, but certainly worth giving it a go if you want something different.”

Trudi and Peter, Scarborough

FAQ

Is sailing upstream or downstream during a Nile cruise better?

The decision to sail upstream or downstream during your Nile River cruise depends on various factors, including the itinerary and the amount of time you have available. Downstream cruises generally take one night less than upstream cruises.

Sailing upstream is often considered a more leisurely option, following the natural route that great explorers and adventurers historically travelled southwards. As you journey further upstream on the magnificent River Nile, you will be treated to increasingly exotic landscapes and attractions.

We recommend opting for loose-fitting clothing made of breathable fabrics like linen or cotton in light, pale colours. These choices will help protect you from the sun while ensuring maximum comfort. It’s important to note that Egypt is conservative, particularly when visiting religious sites.

To show respect and adhere to local customs, women should have clothing that covers their shoulders, upper arms, and knees. Men are advised to avoid wearing shorts and sleeveless shirts, opting for modest attire that respects the culture and traditions of Egypt.

What is the duration of a typical Nile River cruise?

Typically, our cruises along the Nile extend from 10 to 15 nights, allowing ample time to immerse yourself in the river’s historical and cultural offerings.

These excursions are organized around your cruise schedule, either before or after your river journey, to afford you a comprehensive encounter with these ancient marvels.

When is the optimal season to embark on a Nile River cruise?

Selecting the right time for your Nile River cruise is crucial.
