Nile River Cruises

Nile River Cruises

Ancient pyramids, colorful bazaars and temples that were already ancient by the time Cleopatra took charge only begin to describe the highlights of a Nile River cruise through Egypt. Itineraries generally include tours of landmark sights in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan, as well as visits to more secluded temples such as Abu Simbel. With so many things to see, a Nile River cruise includes plenty of tours, but there's also time to relax and watch the world float by.

    Slightly nervous because the ship is French and the vast majority of passengers are French. The Douro river is wonderful. The ship spent 3 night in Porto which was too long and passengers wanted to cruise...the joke was it was a cruise that ... Read more
