The staff on the Sphinx as well as the land tours was absolutely fantastic! Our guide Ahmed was super knowledgable and helped us to learn so much about ancient Egypt. I was amazed how much we knew by the end of the trip.

The Sphinx was a new, gorgeous boat with great amenities and fantastic food. The wait staff at the bars and restaurants was just amazing! Amr Badr was at the top of the list, with incredible service and attention to all the guests. Other staff such as Ahmed, Mosser, Hassan, Bassam, and Noby were top notch professionals, who seemed to love their jobs.

Our state room on the ship was stupendous, and we had a great view out the two large windows. The bathroom was huge, with a large shower, tub, and two sinks. There were two large closets, with plenty of shelves as well as hanging areas. There was plenty of room for all our belongings in the two closets. Our room attendants Magdy and Shaaban were absolutely fantastic and cleaned everything twice per day.
