We chose this cruise because the Ra is a relatively new ship designed for the Nile River, and we had previous experience on Viking cruises and expected a top-notch cruise. As part of the cruise, we spent 3 nights in Cairo, 7 nights on Viking Ra cruising along the Nile, 1 night back in Cairo, and 4 nights on an extension to Jordan.
The ship is extremely nice with very nice suite cabins (we had a Veranda Suite with two rooms, a living room and a bedroom, neither huge), excellent food, and great service.
All of the excursions on the cruise were excellent. We had an incredibly knowledgeable and highly educated Egyptologist for all of our excursions.
