PACING

  • You will visit 8 destinations in 12 nights
  • In addition to embarkation in Cairo and disembarkation in Aswan, you’ll visit 6 distinct ports of call during your cruise

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS

  • This trip is moderately-paced and not wheelchair-friendly
  • You must be able to walk 2-3 miles unassisted in order to fully experience every destination, such as the archaeological sites at Luxor and elsewhere
  • Entering tombs in the Valley of the Kings and Queens may involve descending a narrow, somewhat steep walkway at a crouch, and may not be comfortable for some
  • At most ports of call, the m/s Nebu will dock at the pier so that you can walk from ship ramp to shore. Occasionally, side-by-side docking will be necessary along the Nile, so you will be required to walk through another cruise ship to reach the shore.

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION

  • Sightseeing that requires transportation will be on a private, air-conditioned motorcoach. There is also one short small boat ride to the Temple of Philae and one short, horse-drawn carriage ride to the Temple of Edfu
  • Steps and cobblestones are to be expected, as well as occasional steep and/or uneven terrain
  • Sightseeing focuses on guided walking tours at various archaeological sites along the Nile River

CLIMATE

Be prepared for warm temperatures and bright sun. Nights will be noticeably cooler than the daytime. Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly.
