The entertainment was good, but from a safety standpoint the cruise boat's diesel fumes were too much for me inside the boat.
The Nile dinner cruise was nice. The food was delicious...had the chicken. It was a very nice ship with great ambiance. The cruise lasted about 2 hours and there were 3 different acts/entertainers throughout the cruise.
Good food, great seat, the entertainment was not so good though. Otherwise, it was decent.
Our guide and driver were right on time to collect us from the hotel - excellent service and friendly. The al a carte menu was a bit short of al a carte, but the show was great - the cruise too.
The staff were very nice and efficient. The entertainment was nice, not fantastic, but nice.

The dinner was great, the entertainment was average.
A worthwhile excursion. Good food and show. Everything appeared to be a little rushed but it all went to plan and the timings were spot on.
They were very late picking us up, but we did arrive just in time. The food was pretty good, the singer was ok, the dervisher was amazing, and the belly dancer was good. All in all, it was ok and I would recommend this for anyone going to cairo.
food average, worth doing just to see the whirling dervish.
This was ok. Dinner was very good, entertainment could be better.
The boat was very nice, possibly the best boat on the Nile dinner cruise circuit. The food was 510 and the drinks were ridiculously expensive. We're talking 22 for a Rum and Coke in a tiny glass. The entertainment was a mix. The opening singer was very Vegas-like, singing USA lounge songs which I didn't find culturally illuminating. The Whirling Dervish and Belly Dancer were 810. The Whirling Dervish went through the audience for pictures, but the Belly Dancer didn't.
I thought the food was very good and the ship and cruise along the Nile was nice. Not impressed with the belly dancer or singers. Other entertainment was very good. Worth doing first time, but would not do again.
We were picked up by our guide as agreed. Starter was buffet salad bar. Main meal was lovely. Dessert was given to us and didnt get a choice. So much for al la carte menu. Drinks were expensive especially the alcoholic ones. The entertainment was good apart from the singer who we felt was uncomfortable being on stage. We were driven back to our hotel where the guide was expecting a tip. Seeing how we managed to spend almost 300 this evening we did tip him but he was not impressed witb the amount given.
Was looking forward to this one but ..The dinner was average and did not include any drinks even water. The music was monotonous and the dancer was average.
The best thing about this was the cruise up and down the Nile seeing the city lights for one and a half hours.
They charged very very high prices for all drinks including water and soda. This was never mentioned in any tour info until we got the menus. The band and female singers were not very good, but the dancers were great, especially the twirling guy. The male singer was pretty good. All the food was excellent!
In all the evening was ok. More opportunity could have been given for dancing, of which there was virtually none. In addition, I mentioned at booking, confirmation and told the waiter that my date was allergic to peanuts. Nonetheless, dessert was served with peanuts. Please be certain on dinner cruises to respect people's allergies, especially major one. Thank you.
