Nile Cruises

Cruiseboat sailing down the Nile at sunset

What to Expect

Our Nile Cruises offer a 5-star experience whilst you navigate the ancient River Nile. Cruising for 8-12 hours in total during the 3 or 4 day trip, our ships cover a distance of 212 kilometres whilst travelling downstream from Aswan to Luxor or upstream from Luxor to Aswan. The remainder of the time the boat is in dock in either Aswan, Luxor or at sightseeing stops en route. A relaxing and peaceful experience, the journey is the perfect opportunity to unwind after sightseeing in Cairo or exploring the magnificent temples of Abu Simbel.

Along the route, expect beautiful views of the river banks, with their rising sand dunes and lush greenery, and scenes of local village life by the water. A guided sightseeing stop is included at Kom Ombo, a unique temple dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek and falcon god Horus. Then by night, you’ll enjoy unspoiled views of the starry night sky overhead, best viewed from the top deck, as well as the modern conveniences and comforts of your cabin.

Double bedroom aboard a Nile Cruiser, Egypt

What are the cabins like?

Located on the main or upper deck, all of our cabins are outward facing and offer fantastic views of the River Nile. Inside, the rooms are similar to that of a 5-star hotel, with twin or double beds and a private bathroom.

Amenities such as air-conditioning, a minibar and a TV are also included in the cabins. So if sailing aboard a traditional felucca doesn’t sound quite like your style, our Nile Cruises are a great alternative.

Pool and sunchairs aboard a Nile Cruiser, Egypt

What facilities are on board?

Likewise, our Nile Cruisers are well-equipped when it comes to facilities. The deck offers plenty of space for relaxation, alongside a plunge pool where you can take a refreshing dip and cool off from the midday heat. There’s also a lounge area and bar, perfect for enjoying a cocktail or two with your fellow passengers, and some cruisers offer gyms or wellness facilities such as a sauna and massage services.

All meals are included aboard our Nile Cruises and served buffet-style in the ships’ restaurants. If you purchase any drinks during your time on board, you can pay your bill upon check out.
