About Egypt Cruises

On a cruise to Egypt, you'll see a number of truly breathtaking sights such as the iconic pyramids in the buzzy capital of Cairo, plus you'll bear witness to the daily prayer calls in one of Alexandria's most gorgeous and popular mosques, Abu Abbas al-Mursi. For even more of a scenic experience, you can go on a Nile River cruise, which offers a variety of excursions and things to do, such as hot-air balloon rides, temple tours and the chance to test out your bargaining skills with vendors selling goods and souvenirs.

In addition to port stops in Egypt, many cruises also sail to other locations such as Saudi Arabia, Cyprus, Arabia and Turkey.

The best time to cruise to Egypt is between October and April as you can expect milder temperatures compared to cruising in the summer months when temperatures can reach over 100 degrees. Some of the popular cruise lines that sail to Egypt include Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), Holland America Line (HAL), Viking River Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Uniworld Cruises, Silversea Cruises and MSC Cruises.

What are some things to do in Egypt?

What should I pack for a cruise to Egypt?

Most local women wear modest clothing, including head covers. Long-sleeved tops and ankle-length skirts are the norm for Egyptian women, however visitors to the area aren't expected to dress in the same fashion. But you should still pack less revealing clothing out of respect, especially if you plan on going to any mosques, which require everyone to cover their legs and arms. Bring loose-fitting clothing for comfort and breathability, and sunglasses and a hat to shield your eyes from the glaring sun.
