10/10 Exceptional

Absolutely Luxurious Cruise
From start to finish the staff and crew were so welcoming and helpful. The meals were prepared with care and art and was presented always in a beautiful manner. The rooms are absolutely spacious and the balconies are just incredible. On the top deck there was a pool and jacuzzi and plenty of sun bathing chairs. The housekeeping were like ninjas cleaning the room twice a day and always leaving a sweet towel animal on our bed every evening. We were so pleased with everything and highly recommend this Nile cruise. Our Tour Guide Amr was an absolute highlight as well. Amr was thorough and fun and educated us on the Ancient Egypt ruins. His knowledge was outstanding and friendliness even better. Amr you were our Top Guide in Egypt. ❤️ Michel the tour operator made sure we were well taken care of. Thank you everyone Shukran ❤️❤️❤️

A wonderful nile cruise on a yacht
First impression made no big statement upon entering , but as we were given the key to our cabin it dorned on me that this was a special ship in deed and so it was. I was delighted with ,the Cabin was very large and elegant in an understated kind of way. The crue are all fantastic from the general manager that made sure that everything was perfect, to the cleaning staff that kept the cabin as well as the rest of the boat spotlessly clean .The food was superb .It's impossible to find anything negative to write. I highly recommend this cruise !

10/10 Exceptional

Great experience - impecable service, very good food, excellent excursions. It is a rather old but reasonably well kept boat (though some bits IMHO need replacing). The on-board tour guide (Hamed) experienced, well versed, but perhaps lacking enthusiasm. Also, his English pronunciation was hard to understand. the only disappointment is overpriced bar. But I guess when you book a cruise, you automatically subscribe for the price monopoly.

2/10 Poor

Lots of lies
The hotel explanation says wifi is free, but they want to charge you 25 US dollars. The explanation says there is a business center, but actually there is no center. It says there is SPA, but it doesn't exist. It says it will provide free shuttle connecting the ship and an airport/hotel, but it didn't. I waited for a driver but he didn't show up. I finally took a taxi but failed to catch the plane, and I had to purchase another plane and waited for it for another five hours. The worst was the English-speaking guide, who spoke strong Egyptian accent strange language. There are so many ships on the Nile. I cannot believe why this picked up the worst one. (some ship crews and waiters were kind and friendly, though.)
