Day 3

Cairo – Abu Simbel. This morning fly to Abu Simbel, possibly the most awe-inspiring temple of all ancient Egypt, built to revere the mighty King Ramses II. Here you'll board your 5 star cruiser and have lunch on board before embarking on a guided tour of the mighty temples of Abu Simbel.

Day 4

Abu Simbel– Lake Nasser. A modern feat of engineering, the High Dam contains 18 times the amount of material used in the construction of Cheops, the largest pyramid at Giza. The by-product for this awesome construction is Lake Nasser – the world’s largest artificial lake. This morning set sail on Lake Nasser. The first of many hidden gems you'll see is Kasr Ibrim, an ancient Nubian citadel. Information about the site is provided from the ship’s sundeck as entrance to the site is not permitted. En route to Wadi El Seboua, explore the Temple of Amada, the oldest of Lake Nasser's monuments and home to some of the most finely and vibrant reliefs. Spend the remainder of the day enjoying a cocktail party and live music performances in the lounge bar onboard.

This morning explore the temple of Wadi El Seboua which was dedicated by Ramses II to the two Gods Amon Ra and Ra Harmakis. The temple features a sphinx-lined avenue and was once converted to a church by early Christians. Returning to the ship, relax and sip cocktails as you cross the Tropic of Cancer, bound for the Nubian city of Aswan.

Philae Temple

Lake Nasser – Aswan. Welcome to Aswan! After breakfast we disembark and enjoy a trip to the mighty High Dam and Philae Temple.

After lunch at a local restaurant check in to your hotel in Aswan and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.
