Cairo & cruise on the Nile: The Land of the Pharaohs Cruise Review

“We’ve been thinking of travelling to Egypt for a long time now and we’re so glad we decided to do so by cruise! The service was impeccable and the views were absolutely wonderful, not to mention that the excursions were the most fun we’ve had in a long time while travelling. If you’re looking for a new experience or are thinking of re-visiting Egypt, I’d highly advise doing so via a CroisiEurope cruise.”
