Nile River Cruises
By Viator, September 2016
The River Nile, the world's longest, has long been the lifeblood of a desert country. One of the highlights of a trip to Egypt is to take a cruise along this most famous of rivers for several days, sailing past monuments thousands of years old, each one a testament to the importance of the river to successive civilizations.
Enjoy the beautiful scenery as you cruise the Nile on a 5-day journey from Luxor to Aswan. Those with more time to luxuriate can spend eight days relaxing on a leisurely Nile River cruise from Luxor. Sightseeing with a private guide, entrance fees and meals are included on a luxuriously relaxing cruise on Egypt's famous river. Alternately, you can enjoy a 4-day cruise or 8-day cruise traveling from Aswan to Luxor.
Scheduled privately guided tours on the cruise include the Valley of the Kings, Karnak and Luxor Temples, Edfu Temple, Kom Ombo and the beautiful Philae Temple in Aswan. As the tours are private, you can plan your itinerary with your guide during the cruise.
The deluxe Nile cruiser boasts an on-board restaurant, lounges and reading areas, a discotheque, swimming pool with jacuzzi, large shaded sundeck with bar, massage service, boutique, gift shop and laundry service. Evening entertainment may include Nubian music and dancers, a Galabayeh night and belly dancing. The cruiser's 58 air-conditioned cabins have private facilities and satellite TV, and you can choose from three cabin types.
Shorter half-day cruises include a boat tour of Soheil Island and a felucca tour of Elephantine-Island and Aswan Botanic Gardens.
