The majestic River Nile is the lifeline of Egypt, central to its civilisation. The river spans centuries of history, with monuments and relics interspersed with scenes from biblical times and contemporary buildings sparkling in the sunshine. There is no better way to see the ancient sights of Egypt than to cruise the Nile and Lake Nasser while experiencing the stylish and comfort of the purpose built cruise boats with attentive staff, excellent food and attractive living quarters.
A tranquil and exciting cruise from Luxor to Aswan gives an enriching perspective of one of the world’s greatest outdoor museums, side by side with date trees and mango plantations and all manners of agricultural scenes. The lush banks of the Nile cannot fail to attract while village and town folk go about their daily life. There will be a chance to shop in Luxor and Aswan for souvenirs and spices, and street traders will vie for your attention at stops along the route
A cruise on Lake Nasser is a spectacular way to see this gigantic man-made reservoir. It was formed after the building of the High Dam in Aswan, which necessitated the movement of monuments to higher ground in order to preserve them. Among these antiquities were the mighty temples of Abu Simbel with their colossal statues of Ramses II standing guard. A cruise on this peaceful lake on board the well appointed and purpose built Prince Abbas, enjoying impeccable service and good food, is a marvellously relaxing way to see more of the wonders Egypt has to offer visitors.
