Different Types of Nile Cruise programs

Nile Cruises make the trip between Luxor and Aswan Cities at the South of Egypt. There are 3 different Nile Cruise Programs.

The first program is 3 Nights / 4 Days Aswan - Luxor Program.

In this Program you start the trip from Aswan City. You visit Aswan City then the Nile Cruise Sail to Luxor. On the Way the Nile Cruise Stops at Kom Ombo City to visit Kom Ombo Temple and at Edfu City to visit Edfu Temple. At the End the Nile Cruise Arrive to Luxor. In Luxor you visit the West Bank of Luxor. This is the Normal 3 Nights / 4 Days Nile Cruise program. However there are very few Nile Cruises that make this Program in reverse order. You Start from Luxor City and you End at Aswan.

The second program is the 4 Nights / 5 Days Luxor - Aswan Program. The Difference between this program and the 3 Nights program is that you visit the East Bank of Luxor City (Karnak & Luxor Temples) and you get an Extra Felucca Ride in Aswan. This Program starts from Luxor and Ends at Aswan. However there are also very few Nile Cruises that make it in reverse order from Aswan to Luxor. In our Opinion this is the Ideal Program for a Nile Cruise Trip.

The Third program is the 7 Nights / 8 Days Luxor / Aswan / Luxor program. In This program you make the same tours as 4 Nights program. Very few Nile Cruises add sailing to Dendara to visit Dendara Temple. In our opinion this is very long Trip. A lot of people get bored from this 7 Nights Trip. We recommend that clients take a 4 Nights Nile Cruise program and save their money to do something else in the other 3 Nights.

Please Note:

* Programs may be changed without prior notice due to navigational circumstances.
* Programs may change in sequence but not in visits.


- What are the Entertainment On Board Nile Cruises?

Most Nile Cruises have a Discotheque, Belly Dance Show, fancy Galabia Party and Nubian Folkloric Show Every day there is a full entertainment program, which differs from one boat to the other.

In Some Cruises (Depend on The Cruise Class) the first day is usually a cocktail party, run by the boat, where they offer free drinks and introduce the staff on board. This party is also called (the managers party, where the manager introduces his crew to the guests on board; do not forget to wear formal clothes during this party!

Another night there is( a Galabia party or long dress party), where you will be encouraged to get Egyptian outfits and wear the local Galabia. During such parties, some games are conducted; the tour guides on board run the party, which offers much fun!! To buy a Galabia will cost you around 10 US$, but if you do not wish to buy one, you can hire one from the bazaar shop located on board.

Another night will have a Nubian show, where you will see Nubian dancers and singers in their local outfit. The last evening?s entertainment is usually has: a belly dancing show, a juggler s show, and local singers and bands. There are many bazaars outside the Temples that you will be visit during your cruise.

Please Note:

Entertainment can vary from Nile Cruise to Another. DO NOT EXPECT to have the same Entertainment in a Cheap Nile Cruise such as the Entertainment of an Ultra Luxury Nile Cruise.
