Flowing for over 4000 miles from Africa, through Egypt and out into the Mediterranean Sea, the Nile is the longest river in the world. The Ancient Egyptians worshipped the Nile God Hapi and many lived along the banks as it provided them with water, transportation, food and excellent soil for growing food.
A Nile River Cruise holiday is an unforgettable experience. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, surrounded by the luxuries of comfort, the big ships that substitute as Luxury Nile River Cruises floating hotels provide this. Spacious rooms, modern amenities and exquisite cuisine, such as local fish and Eastern Oriental foods, as well as a wide range of international cuisine will make this a trip to remember. However, if the adventurous spirit in you calls out you can try travelling on the feluccas. These narrow boats will not be as luxurious as the big ships, but sleeping on the deck and having sailors double as cooks has its own charm.
The weather in Egypt is glorious all year round, although between October and March it is not so hot when leaving the ship to explore one of the many ancient sites. Most of the cruise ships will have a swimming pool out on the sun deck and evening entertainment, including Egyptian folklore, Nubian style dancing and belly dancing.
Luxor Nile cruise port is approximately 10 minutes from Luxor Airport - 7km (5 miles).Esna Nile cr
Fantastic Sight Seeing
From the deck of the ship you can marvel at the many birds and animals lining the banks and trees as well as local Egyptians going about their day and the smaller felucca boats showing the traditional side of Egypt.
