Unless you are thinking of doing a Cairo to Luxor Nile cruise, a trip which has only just restarted after being withdrawn for almost 20 years and is only being offered by a few operators at present, then you may have a better response if you post your question on either the Luxor or the Aswan forums, as these are the 2 places that the 'usual' and most common Nile cruises depart from and sail between.

After Morsi's decree that he is above the law (anyone else shocked?), we just emailed to get our tour deposit returned. Goodbye, Egypt.

No, it isn't shocking. Its governments the world over and has, in my view, very little impact on your holiday. Of course its your choice and your money and I don't criticise you for cancelling but it is such a pity that its put you off visiting such an incredible country.
