All you need to know about Nile cruises

Nile Cruise Road

Nile cruises usually operate between Luxor and Aswan after multiple stops between them. A short trip turns into a long journey by adding more stops while sailing. Stations are usually between the temples of Kom Ombo, Edfu and Esna. For a longer trip, cruises stop at Dendera and Abydos and continue on the usual path.

The best time to take a Nile trip

The best time to take the flight is between November and March. The weather is a little cooler but nice. Due to the high demand, prices are usually on the upside, but the experience is worth it. While the May-September period is low season due to excessive heat, prices have fallen.

How to get to the trip

There are a number of domestic and international flights that fly to southern Egypt. Other than that, it is highly recommended to use domestic flights to cities such as Luxor and Aswan, then transfer local transportation to the destination of cruises. There are coaches available as well, but flights have always been a safer and less time-consuming option.

Meals on the boat

There are usually two types of plans available to tourists: the first is where all meals are served buffet style at a specific time. The menu varies, but the time is fixed. Another type is where all meals are served, including drinks that include local alcohol. The last package is usually available with a one-week trip.

Check in and time of departure

For all Nile cruises, check-in time is 11:00 AM. The tour crew offers tourists the option to leave luggage on the boat and explore nearby cities. By the time the tourist arrives, the cabin is ready with the luggage placed there.

The check-out time is usually 8 AM after breakfast. This leaves the tourist to visit the nearby popular tourist sites before departure if the flights are scheduled for late evening.

Dresses to wear during the vacation

Soft and breathable fabric clothing is recommended during the day, while nights can be a bit cold, so warm clothing can be worn. While stopping, it is best to wear modest clothing, while it is acceptable to wear shorts or swimwear during the trip.
