Deluxe Features

On this adventure, you’ll enjoy the finest in luxury travel. Experience all the best of Egypt’s ancient wonders and get to know its vibrant culture with the greatest of ease and in unmatched comfort. Take your Egyptian journey to the next level and see just how glorious luxury on the Nile can be!

Opulent Accommodations

It goes without saying that on this 15-day tour you’ll be staying in some of Egypt’s top luxury hotels. Reside on the banks of the Nile in the heart of Cairo’s Garden City at the panoramic Nile Ritz-Carlton Cairo. Take in the sweep of the famous promenade in Alexandria from the picture-perfect private beach of the elegant Four Seasons at San Stefano. End your journey in the comfort and convenience of the JW Marriott Cairo, a world-class resort just minutes from the airport. At every hotel, you’ll be pampered with spacious suites, impeccable service, and a range of fine dining restaurants, while blissful spas, saunas, and swimming pools provide ideal surroundings for relaxation after an exciting day’s sightseeing.

And, you’ll be living in equal grandeur aboard ship on your seven-night deluxe Nile River cruise. The name of your cruise ship, the m/s Nebu, is the Egyptian word for gold — and you’ll see why the moment you step on board. Custom-built to Vantage’s exacting specifications for the last word in luxury, comfort, and convenience, the Nebu sets the gold standard for Nile cruising. Spacious and stylish interiors include the gleaming lounge and lobby, a restaurant featuring sumptuous international cuisine, a lavish spa, and a modern fitness center. On the top deck, you’ll find an expansive sun deck and sparkling swimming pool — the perfect spot to start your day with breakfast or end it with a sundowner cocktail. Your personal haven is no less luxurious and generous: the Nebu boasts the largest staterooms on the Nile. One of the unique features of the ship is its four adjoining rooms, ideal for friends and family traveling together. Plus, there are four rooms just for singles.

Fly-in Tour of Abu Simbel

There’s no more effortless way to see Egypt’s ancient wonders than aboard the m/s Nebu. Your deluxe cruise ship will take you directly to many of Egypt’s most famous and best-preserved temples. But there is one great temple the Nebu cannot reach. Situated above the Aswan High Dam, on the banks of the vast Lake Nasser, Abu Simbel takes several days to reach by boat, or several hours by coach. Nonetheless, many people make the trek, as this temple, built by the great pharaoh Ramses II, is renowned for its magnificence.

However, every feature of this journey has been carefully tailored to allow you to explore the best of Egypt’s ancient wonders with the maximum of ease and comfort. So, we’ll be whisking you to this remote location in less than an hour on a fantastic fly-in tour. After breakfast and a short transfer to Aswan airport, you’ll be winging your way over the waters of Lake Nasser to touch down beside this great Nubian Monument and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The excursion is so quick and hassle-free that you’ll be back on board ship in time for lunch!

Authentic Egyptian Experiences

No visit to a country is complete without the chance to experience its culture, and this journey includes many enjoyable and appealing opportunities to participate in Egyptian life. In Cairo and Alexandria, at dinners at some of the best local restaurants, you’ll get a taste of delicious regional cuisine and the local social scene. On board ship, we’ll don traditional galabiyas (also known as Jellabiyas) for a fun costume party where a vibrant Oriental show with lively music will set the mood for a festive night. Also, on our cruise, we’ll be treated to a transfixing belly-dancing show: a chance to marvel at the precise and controlled movements of this Egyptian style of dance — and perhaps learn a move or two yourself!

And, although you’ll spend most of your time on the Nile cruising in total modern luxury, you’ll also get an idea of what it’s like to sail this great river the traditional way. In Aswan, we’ll board a wooden felucca sailboat and enjoy a scenic excursion around the lush islands below the First Cataracts. As the boat’s lateen sails fill with the breeze, you’ll sip sparkling wine and contemplate the timeless riverscapes of the eternal waters of the Nile.
