What you have to know about your Trip

For practical reasons on the Nile, the cruise may be subject to slight alterations at short notice while you are in Egypt.

Most sailing is done during the day, but during some periods some sailing may be required after dark

At busy periods the boat may be required to wait for a short time to get through the lock on the Nile at Esna

When moored, several cruise boats may be required to moor alongside each other. This can restrict views and require clients to cross several boats to reach the shore. Assistance will be provided if required.

When first checking in on the cruise boat, it is advisable to leave your valuables in a safety deposit box. This will be available either in the reception, or a private safe in your cabin.

If you wish to buy any items from the shops on board, the opportunity for shopping is generally limited due to the small size of these shops. But on the other hand you will get plenty of time to check what you are buying, and haggle over the price!

To call home, most of the cruise boats offer telephone facilities on board, but the quality is not as good as onshore.

We recommend to visit a bank, to change your money, before cruising, as most of the cruise boats do not offer this facility and you will not get access to onshore banks while you are cruising.
