Most Nile Cruises have a Discotheque, Belly Dance
Show, fancy Galabia Party and Nubian Folkloric Show Every day there is a full
entertainment program, which differs from one boat to the other.
In Some Cruises (Depend on The Cruise Class) the first day is usually a cocktail
party, run by the boat, where they offer free drinks and introduce the staff on
board. This party is also called “the manager’s party”, where the manager
introduces his crew to the guests on board; don’t forget to wear formal clothes
during this party!
Another night there is a “Galabia party” or long dress party, where you will be
encouraged to get Egyptian outfits and wear the local Galabia. During such
parties, some games are conducted; the tour guides on board run the party, which
offers much fun!! To buy a Galabia will cost you around 10 US$, but if you do
not wish to buy one, you can hire one from the bazaar shop located on board.
Another night will have a Nubian show, where you will see Nubian dancers and
singers in their local outfit. The last evening’s entertainment is usually has:
a belly dancing show, a juggler’s show, and local singers and bands. There are
many bazaars outside the Temples that you will be visit during your cruise.
Entertainment can vary from Nile Cruise to Another. DO NOT EXPECT to have the
same Entertainment in a Cheap Nile Cruise such as the Entertainment of an Ultra
Luxury Nile Cruise. The Golden Rule is NOTHING FOR FREE.
