Cabin Review

Grand Suite

Our room was large, with 2 sliding glass doors we opened frequently. The bathroom was also very large - definitely not something I expected on a cruise ship! It even had a big bathtub in addition to a large shower. The beds were very comfortable and of course, the linens were Egyptian Cotton and beautiful. We always had plenty of bottled water in our room and a small refrigerator to keep things cold.

All areas throughout the ship - cabins, dining rooms, roof deck, etc- were always immaculate and clean. In addition, the staff, as well as bus drivers and Egyptologists, took COVID precautions very seriously. Although all were fully vaccinated, we were required to wear masks in common areas and hand sanitizer was everywhere and offered every time we returned to the ship or to the bus.

Port Reviews


Aswan was my favorite town we visited. The water, boats and other sites were lovely. I would like to return.
