Once again we joined a passenger initiated shore excursion for an overnight stay in Cairo and had a wonderful time. Some fellow American passengers were wary of the security situation in Egypt but our time there was without mishap. Our bus joined the police escorted entourage out of the port onto the highway. The hotel was of a high standard with security scanners and guards as had the museum. The pyramids were of course the highlight of the trip but the constant harrassment from trinket sellers was a little offputting.
