Guests will be treated to authentic nightly entertainment including a Belly Dance show, a Galabeya (a traditional Egyptian gown) party and a Darawish show.
The river cruise, sailing round trip from Luxor, and Cairo program — with intra-Egypt flights between Cairo and Luxor — will operate seasonally from September through to May each year. To complement this immersive 11-night cruise and land adventure, Secrets of Egypt & the Nile will be offered with optional extensions including pre-program, three nights in Dubai or four nights in Jordan (Amman and Petra) and post-program, four nights in Israel (Jerusalem).
AmaWaterways will begin their weekly sailings in September 2021. They will only sail the Nile from September through May; since Egypt is just too hot June through August to comfortably visit. With only 34 cabins on the ship, it is best to book as early as possible. Would you like more information about sailing the mysterious Nile River in 2021 or 2022? Just give me a shout:
