Long Nile Cruise

Post by Chris » Mon Dec 29, 2014 2:50 pm

Just had this mailshot from Discover Egypt. I will be surprised if it actually happens. They have said this for the last two years and then cancelled the cruises.

Cruises are now able to operate the whole distance of the Nile, 600 miles, creating an unforgettable voyage following in the footsteps of the Pharaohs with fascinating excursions included. This cruise operates aboard a number of different boats on certain dates and durations throughout the year.

8 NIGHTS FROM £1,734PP
10 NIGHTS FROM £1,994PP

If these cruises happen (which may well depend on events on 25 Jan and on the elections in March) they are only between Cairo and Luxor.

There were a very few long cruises last season. Good luck!

My friend is the office manager [I say manager as she does all the work :lol: ] of a German tour company that offers this cruse. As far as I know it operated successfully last year and is offered this year as well.

It seems like its cruises all the way for Egyptian Holiday's, so I cannot see a long cruise being too unsuccessful.

It just seems that hotel holiday's are off the agenda in Luxor at the moment, and people are opting for cruises. You never know they may turn out to be like the Caribbean type of cruises where older people meet up for romance and friendship

Definitely one thing they don't want here is Luxors rendition of ''The love Boat.'' Uck. :sk
