A week's cruise on this old steamer is a dream. There were only 12 of us in November but it was warm 30 - 28'c although sometimes a bit windy, certainly not uncomfortable. The old style charm of luxurious furnishings and décor was sumptuous, beautiful Persian carpets and antique artefacts. The top sun deck had a plunge pool - cold!... More

The only thinks unique about the Nile River Dinner Cruise; which is available in Cairo, Egypt is the unique location, and perhaps the live entertainment. (belly dancers) Several girl in Egyptian costume dancing around the tables. However; the food; which was buffet style; left much to be desired. There was very little foods available; especially any which were any good!... More

We entered The Cruise by 0730 Pm . We did feel the difference in ambiance inside at once. Dinner served by 0800 Pm . With Flowing Music inside & Nile outside we did enjoy the treat. It was followed by the Dervish whirler and belly dance . Altogether a different experience

The boat was well furnished and the food was nice, not outstanding but nice. The entertainment was excellent though. We had a couple of dancers and they provided some great entertainment. The boat was very smooth, we barely noticed we had left the dock!

So we finally and unfortunatelly drew to an end of our stay in Egypt, that lasted almost twenty days. As the some kind of a cherry on the top of the pie ,although we already experienced all the pleasure and got the knowledge about this wonderful country, our guide decided to take us for farewell from Egypt, on one magnificent...

Traveled with my wife and parents. We had a lovely experience. The food was pretty good, but the desert menu was great, The chefs were also very helpful and friendly. Atmosphere was great, a journey rich with History. I for one highly recommend if you have not been there yet.

Nearly 2 hours cruise on the river Nile in the heart of Cairo is really amazing and memorable. Famous Egyptian Belly Dance and the folk dances were very marvelous. Dinner/Food was reasonably good and enough quantity. Nile Dinner Cruise is also one of the unavoidable attractions for tourists visiting Cairo.

I came here with a group of about 20+ people. We had a great time, the food was good, the service was great and we enjoyed the live band and belly dancer. A great way to spend an evening!
