“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
