Sailing from Aswan’s islands to Cairo’s pyramids, via the ‘living museum’ of Luxor, this is a cruise of push-the-boat-out luxury. An unforgettable experience of ancient Egypt with impeccable service, cosseted aboard the royal steamer SS Misr, the former floating palace of King Farouk. Built for the Royal Navy in 1918, and later transformed into a regal vessel for Egypt’s last monarch, the ship was recently restored to its former glory, to be re-launched as an icon of the Nile, from its balconied cabins to the fine restaurant and facilities.

This exclusive Jules Verne journey is accompanied by a tour manager/Egyptologist, to brief you on their history and mystery. The cruise begins by Aswan’s High Dam and sails to discoveries at Kom Ombo’s double-deity shrine and Edfu’s Ptolemaic temple; modern Luxor, wrapped around its ancient Theban relics; the temples of Denderah and Abydos, and tombs of Tell el-Amarna, Tuna el-Gebel and Beni Hassan; concluding at Cairo’s iconic Sphinx and including days where you just sit back and relax as you admire the views and experience life on the serene River Nile. Adding a special touch enroute, we take tea at Aswan’s Old Cataract, visit Luxor Temple by night and enjoy a cocktail reception at Luxor’s Winter Palace.
