Egypt Cruises

Amazing adventures don’t come better than egyptian cruise holidays.

An Egypt cruise Holiday brings you into contact with a country that is living proof water has the power to turn even the most barren desert into a world wonder. Once known as the “Black Land”, the country’s one million square kilometers of sandy terrain is nourished by the famous aquatic lifeline which enriched the land and enabled the pharaohs of yore to build a formidable empire, the remnants of which remain a soundbite of Egypt’s illustrious past.The River Nile, the world’s longest, flows upward past numerous notable cities and temples, although none of more prevalent and heralded as the great capital of Cairo. From the top of the Zamalek district’s slender Cairo Tower, rising 187 feet and built to resemble a lotus flower from which the ancient Egyptians made papyrus, the multicultural Cairene mosaic of minarets and markets blend the city’s cultural heritage with its vibrant retort.But there is no question that the highlight of any trip to Cairo is the mesmerizing pyramids on the Giza plateau. As the desert unfolds along the banks of the mighty Nile, the three peaks are a reminder that the only surviving wonder of the ancient world are standing more than 4500 years after they were built. Shrouded in mystery, their presence remains a much-debated topic in the halls of academia and beyond. A Journey Back In Time Our exhilarating exploration of Egypt begins at Port Said on Egypt’s Mediterranean coast where you will see the iconic landmark lighthouse before heading to the spectacular and instantly recognizable Pyramids at Giza together with the sphinx – the world’s oldest known statue and an enduring emblem of Egypt.We also pay a visit to the incredulous Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in the heart of Cairo, one of the world’s preeminent archaeological museums and home to more than 120,000 artifacts inside its fancifully domed historic building on the northern side of Tahrir Square. The magnificent treasures of Tutankhamun and other great pharaohs here, accompany dozens of mummies, ancient jewelry, grave goods, eating bowls, and even ancient Egyptian toys.A walk-through Cairo’s exotic Khan el-Khalili bazaar is more than just a shopping trip— it’s a journey back in time. This vast collection of crafts workshops and stores is the Middle Eastern s ogb par excellence and the place where Cairenes have been scooping up everything from semiprecious stones to spices, handcrafted soaps and much more since the 14h century!

FROM US$ 1749.00

Sonesta Amirat Dahabiya Nile Cruise

7 Night Nile Cruises  are an ideal choice for people who want a relaxing break and also an opportunity to explore Ancient Egypt, but they don’t have the time for both. With our 8 days and 7 nights Nile cruise packages, you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Enjoy a private guided tour in Cairo; transfer to Aswan or Luxor; board a luxurious 5-Star Nile cruise ship, and then enjoy a thoroughly relaxing cruise on the Nile, with daily excursions to many of Egypt’s finest historical monuments, from the Temple of Philae in Aswan, to Valley of the Kings in Luxor and more.

AMAZING SIGHTS TO BEHOLD ON 7 NIGHT NILE CRUISES

Imagine the scenery you might enjoy during 7 night Nile cruises! With most setting out from Aswan or Luxor, your cruise would take you past an astonishing array of sites, and ensure you pay visits to some of the most famed locations in Ancient Egyptian history.

There are a variety of 7 night Nile cruises, and you can select from different vessels, different itineraries and land excursions.

Luxury Egypt tours

DAHABIYA OR CRUISER? YOU GET TO CHOOSE WITH 7 NIGHT NILE CRUISES

7 night nile cruise

The first thing to consider when choosing from the different 7 night Nile cruises, is just what sort of vessel you might prefer.

There are the small and luxurious dahabiyas, which are gorgeous wooden boats powered by the wind and featuring enormous sails that dance in the breeze. They can be found with all of the finest, luxurious amenities but also hearken back to the early days of Egyptian travel. Wooden decks, open-air dining and lounging areas at the top decks, and elegant staterooms are all part of the experience.

There are also the larger, modern cruise ships with multiple decks, every possible amenity and even options such as salons, pools and more.

Choosing your preferred vessel is the first step in narrowing down the options in the many 7 night Nile cruises, and then you have to consider the itinerary that appeals to you the most.

7 NIGHT NILE RIVER CRUISE ITINERARIES

7 nights nile cruise

Pharaoh Rameses II Statue in Luxor Temple.

As already noted, most of the 7 night Nile cruises take travelers between Luxor and Aswan, but there are some different ways this is done. You can find 7 night Nile cruises that depart from Aswan and head to Luxor, and you also find the reverse. You can also find 7 night Nile cruises that return you to your starting point (i.e. Luxor – Aswan – Luxor).

In addition to how you explore the sites during 7 night Nile cruises, remember that most of these journeys can be integrated into a wider tour or exploration of Egypt. For example, there are Lake Nasser cruises that could be an ideal way to begin your visit to Egypt. You might cruise the lake for several days and finish in Aswan. From there, you can book one of the 7 night Nile cruises departing from Aswan and heading north (down river) to Luxor.

After exploring Luxor, you can book air or train passage to Cairo and continue taking in the many sites in and around the city, and more.

Yet, just choosing one of the 7 night Nile cruises can tick off many of the must-see locations on any traveler’s Egyptian “bucket list”. This is because the stretch of river between Aswan and Luxor is home to many famous and enchanting sites. A common itinerary, if departing from the northern point of Luxor, would include:

  • Luxor – Sitting on both sides of the river, it is home to the ancient Egyptian capital of Thebes. On the eastern bank you can tour the famed temples of Karnak and Luxor, opting for early morning or evening experiences to make the very most of the sites. On the western side of the river are the world-famous locations like the Valley of the Kings, Deir el-Bahri, the Temple of Hatshepsut, the Colossi of Memnon and the famed Medinet Habu.
  • Esna – Also popular in many itineraries for 7 night Nile cruises, it is an idyllic stopping point between Luxor and the hugely famous sites of Edfu and Kom Ombo. It is also home to the stunning Temple of Khnum.
  • Edfu – One of the largest and most well-preserved of all temples in Egypt, Edfu Temple. Dedicated to Horus, it is a beautiful site and close to Gabal Selsela, a temple carefully relocated to protect it from the Nile’s waters.
  • Kom Ombo – Perhaps one of the most famous temples because of its “double” design, it is a very popular stop on most 7 night Nile cruises. Travelers like to explore this site once famed for its sacred crocodiles and for its temples dedicated to Horus the Elder and Sobek the crocodile god.
  • Aswan – As the starting or finishing point for many premium 7 night Nile cruises, there is much to see and do here. From touring the High Dam and the Unfinished Obelisk to paying a visit to Elephantine Island, Kitchener’s Island (often aboard a charming felucca), the Nubian village, and even the appealing night market, you can find an endless array of sites to see during a visit here.

Yet, the cruises don’t just set sail and stop to allow you to visit the sites. The best cruises also ensure you are accompanied by knowledgeable experts. There are some cruises with trained Egyptologists, professional historians, famed authors and more. They will always accompany the group to shore, lead them through the different destinations, and offer insightful commentary and lectures about the amazing sights before them. Some will also provide lectures on board ship in order to ensure visitors get the very most from every stop.

Do you get free time? Absolutely! Taking longer cruises of 7 nights, or more, means more time at each site and room in the itinerary to explore the different sites, even savoring some meals at local restaurants or doing some shopping in local markets.

NOTHING LIKE A NILE CRUISE IN EGYPT

Whether you can dedicate that full week of travel to a Nile cruise, or have to keep your journey a bit shorter, you will be astonished by the amount you can see and do. Of course, there are options for even longer journeys, with truly luxurious cruises departing from Cairo and making their way all of the way down to Aswan!

Regardless of the length of time, though, there is nothing that can compare to a premium Nile cruise. If you want to wake to the sounds of farmers singing to their cattle, kids splashing in the waters at the shore, and the beauty of a sunrise over the ancient landscape, then it is a cruise for you…why not make your plans today?

The Best 10 River Nile Cruises In Egypt

popular post today

The Best 10 River Nile Cruises In Egypt

Ever since I watched Agatha Christies “Death On The Nile”, I wanted to cruise this magnificent river in style and luxury, just like in the movie. Choosing the best Nile river cruise is not easy. There are so many ships (more than 400 are licensed to cruise the Nile !), so many levels of luxury and so many tour operators amongst which are Memphistours.co.uk , offering different river cruises that it is easy to get bogged down and ultimately make the wrong decision. In this article, I hope to decipher the confusion between the masses of cruises and pick the very best cruise for you on the River Nile.

Background about the Nile

The Nile is famous for being the longest river in the world. With a length of around 6,695 kilometers (4,160 miles), it flows into the Mediterranean Sea, and despite being thought of primarily as an Egyptian River, it also passes through Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Zaire. The Nile was vital to the Ancient Egyptians. With most of Egypt consisting of desert, the fertile valley alongside the Nile River was like gold to them, and thus is where one of the oldest civilizations in the world originated. Cruising the Nile today takes you in the steps of the great Pharaohs to archaeological riches, colorful bazaars, and many magnificent ancient temples and monuments.

Best Time To Go

The best time to take your Nile River cruise is between October and April. During this period, it’s not too hot, so days spent exploring Ancient Egyptian temples will be much more pleasant. The peak of the summer heat occurs from June to August, so it’s definitely worth avoiding these months.

Travel Tips

A Nile river cruise will generally take you to key landmark sights such as Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan, but it’s worth making sure yours takes you to some of the more secluded temples, too, such as Abu Simbel. Many of the cruises involve spending a significant amount of time on dry land. When you are on your ship, you don’t spend your whole time sightseeing, so put the camera away, make the most of the facilities on board, relax, and watch the world float past too. Dress appropriately too, both for the heat (huge sunhats and designer shades are a must) and for the traditions of the Muslim country of Egypt too.

Merit Dahabiya Nile Cruise

Bang for buck, our very first choice of Nile River Cruise has to be on board a stunning Dahabiya river yacht, surely the most luxurious way to experience the river. The Dahabiya is how the aristocrats would have sailed the Nile in the past and add a wonderful dose of old-world charm to your adventure. This elegant vessel has a certain exclusivity due to its intimate size and allows more privacy than on some larger ships. There are just 8 elegant cabins, but despite its size, it doesn’t want for facilities and boasts a spacious sundeck with a Jacuzzi and comfortable lounge and dining room.

Sanctuary Sun Boat IV

One of the very most luxurious boats operating on the Nile River, the Sanctuary Sun Boat IV offers a tranquil, five-star experience. It is air-conditioned, and all cabins have Nile views. There are pools on the upper and lowers decks, as well as space for soaking up the sun and for a fitness area. Choose from 36 luxury cabins and 4 stunning suites. The service and cuisine are exceptional; notably, they have a no smoking and no mobile phones rule in public areas, making for a serene and exclusive vibe.

Oberoi Zahra

Several of the top hotel groups operate boats on the River Nile, and one of our favorites is definitely the Oberoi Zahra . With 27 Luxury Cabins and Luxury Suites, the accommodation is spacious and private. Facilities are first-class, as you would expect, with an excellent restaurant and lounge, a fitness center, and an open-air, temperature-controlled swimming pool, as well as the luxe Oberoi Spa where you can indulge in a signature treatment to ease any aching muscles after strolling around the magnificent temples.

Mövenpick SS Misr Steamer Nile Cruise

Cruising the River Nile aboard a historic steamship is quite the experience and takes you back in time in true Nile style. The five decks are decorated traditionally, and there is a feeling of class about the ship. Stay in one of 28 cabins and relax on a sun deck with its swimming pool. There’s also a restaurant with a varied menu.

MS Presidential Commodore

The 77 cabins MS Presidential Commodore is one of six boats in the Commodore fleet. The comfortable cabins include a mixture of double and single cabins, which is quite rare for Nile cruises, so useful for single luxury travelers. There is a restaurant, bar, sun deck with a swimming pool, gift shops, table tennis, and evening entertainment.

River Tosca

The River Tosca (the ship not river!) is legendary for its stunning lounge that resembles a stylish gentleman’s club. Bought to you by the excellent Uniworld, it has 41 Suites and Staterooms with private marble bathrooms and French balconies. Facilities include a fitness center, library, restaurant, massage room, and a Sun Deck with a swimming pool and cabanas. It takes passengers on lengthy 12 day cruises so this is one for the more experienced river cruiser or if you want to experience the Nile in depth.

One of the newer ships to cruise the Nile is Viking Ra . The all-suite, state-of-the-art ship features Scandinavian décor, a Sun Deck, a pool, and two Jacuzzis, as well as a restaurant, lounge, and bar. With 26 suites, it’s an intimate atmosphere on board, and you can sit back and enjoy the excellent service.

Sonesta Moon

The Sonesta Moon is a great option for more affordable luxury. The facilities are still excellent, with an outdoor swimming deck, a restaurant, lounge, and bar, as well as a fitness room plus a jogging track on the top deck; you’ll never have jogging views quite like these! The décor is fresh and classic, and there are 49 standard cabins and 4 suites.

M/Y Mirage 1

The newly built Mirage is ideal if you want an oversized vessel. With 62 cabins and suites, you don’t get many bigger ships sailing the Nile. Facilities include an outdoor pool and jacuzzi, and a shaded deck area as well as a gym, lounge bar and a main dining room. It’s more contemporary than some of its counterparts and is another affordable luxury choice.
