There are a number of companies which offer Nile cruises and ‘cruise and stay’ holidays in Egypt, and brief details of the ones we work with most are shown below.
In addition to Nile cruises, Discover Egypt also offer twin and multi centre holidays, to include destinations such as Cairo, El Gouna and Sharm El Sheikh, and even Jordan.
Red Sea Holidays
Established in 1985, this family run company has the Red Sea Hotels chain & Grand Cruises, a fleet of Nile cruise boats. For the UK they offer the 5 star MS Grand Rose Nile cruise boat on an All Inclusive basis, as well as 4 and 5 star hotels in Hurghada, Makadi Bay and Sharm El Sheikh. The board basis at the various hotels ranges from bed & breakfast to All Inclusive.
They offer Nile cruises, Nile cruise and stay holidays, and also dive packages and golf packages at some of their hotels in Hurghada, Makadi Bay and Sharm El Sheikh.
Working with Orbital Travel enables me to offer Nile cruises on a ‘cruise only’ basis, which suits many people who are travelling to Egypt from other countries around the world, although I can also offer ‘fly cruise’ packages from the UK.
In the main we will be using the 5 star MS Royal Esadora, which offers the options of both Full Board and All Inclusive, although they do have other boats in the fleet.
Land based stays within Egypt, such as a few nights in Cairo, or some time at a hotel in Luxor or at a Red Sea resort, can be added pre or post cruise.
Saga Holidays & Cruises
Saga Holidays & Cruises offer a choice of Nile Cruise and Nile Cruise & Stay Holidays, and use the Livingstone and Presidential Nile Cruises
