Egypt Nile River Cruises

  • The Nile River

The world’s longest river flows in the shadow of one of its grandest empires. The Nile isn’t just another cruise vacation. It’s a journey that means different things to different people. For some, it’s a trip back in time. For others, into an epic story they’ve imagined since childhood. For others, it’s an Agatha Christie classic come to life (though hopefully less ‘eventful’). No matter how you feel about a cruise on the Nile, it’s an unforgettable way to see the land of the pharaohs.

Most Nile Cruises travel between Luxor, the site of the ancient Egyptian capital, Thebes, and Aswan, the gateway to Nubia and home to the spectacular Philae Temple. This route takes you to popular temples spanning thousands of years, including Edfu and Kom Ombo. How long should your Nile Cruise be? Four or five days will fit well into a classic Egypt itinerary, but taking a week or more gives you time to relax and explore sites many tourists never see. Either way, you’ll never forget going above deck as the call to prayer sounds across the river. The life of Egypt past and present, a cruise on the Nile is a must.
