The Viking Osiris is a great Nile River ship, intimate, new, and designed for this service. Take advantage of all optional trips, especially the hot air balloon at dawn over the Valley of the Kings and the trip to Abu Simbel. The days are long, with little down time, but you cover a lot of history. The boat is relatively informal, no need to dress for dinner, etc., as you may be just coming back from a dusty excursion at dinner time.

Least favorite activity was the trip to the Nubian Village - but... the small boat trip to the village was worth it. On a small "taxi" boat you go through some marshlands and get close to local birds and other wildlife (no crocodiles). That was beautiful.

Viking offers a post-cruise extension to Jordan - do it. Don't think about it, just book this extension. The sights and sites in Jordan, including Petra and Jerash, are awesome.
