The Nile River Cruise: What to Expect
What could be more romantic than going on a cruise along the Nile river? It’s something you’ve always dreamed of doing with the one you love- well, next to going on cheap holidays to Egypt! If you’ve already booked yourselves a romantic cruise in this enthralling part of the world, here’s what you can expect:
First, you fly from Cairo to Luxor or Aswan, and hop on your chosen boat straight from the airport. The cruise usually runs for three, five or eight days. That’s a pretty long stretch for you and your loved one. When the cruise is over, you fly back to Cairo.
All ships have nearly the same itineraries which include stops at the Temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo. You might find yourself scratching your head at the numerous types of ships to choose from, though. Nile cruise ships are rated with 3, 4 or 5 stars. If you want your trip to be special, don’t settle for anything less than 5 stars.
Dining on these cruise ships is an unforgettable experience in itself. Meals are usually served buffet style in a huge dining room. Snacks and drinks are likewise available at the lounge bar, or the sun deck bar on the top level. This comes at an extra charge.
Cruises are the ultimate vacation for couples. Plan wisely and you’re sure to have a memorable time.
