Lake Nasser was formed by the construction of the Aswan High Dam that was completed in 1970. One of the largest man-made lakes in the world, the natural scenery is beautiful. It’s easy to forget that thousands of Nubians, including those in Sudan, were forced to relocate when the lake formed. We got our first glimpse of the lake from Aswan High Dam and then again when we visited Abu Simbel. If you fly to Abu Simbel, get a window seat for views of Lake Nasser that are out of this world!

We joined this cruise in Aswan as part of a month-long tour from Cairo to Abu Simbel with an Australian archaeologist, who showed us many of the historical sights, including Kalabsha temple, Beit el-Wali, Wadi es-Sabua, Dakka, Amada, Derr, Qasr Ibrim (floodlit at night from the ship) and, of course, Abu Simbel both during the day and for the Sound and Light show. It's probably the only way to see some of these sights along Lake Nasser and a relaxing way to travel. The ship was only about half full. The ship, itself, is good but not up to the standard of some other Nile cruise ships. The rooms were comfortable and adequately furnished with air-con, a safe and lake views. The crew were friendly and helpful and we had a mix of Australian, Belgian, Canadian and Spaniard tourists. The meals were all buffet style with a good selection and you could order omelettes, etc for breakfast. There was a bar-b-cue for one evening. Tenders were used to take us ashore at some of the sights but we docked for Abu Simbel. There was a bar serving reasonably priced drinks as well as tea/coffee, etc. The sun-deck was good for relaxing tho' it was plagued by midges, which did not bite but were extremely annoying - maybe just the time of year - but the parasols were covered in them. The ruins of Qasr Ibrim were viewed from the ship at night as they cruised close and shone the floodlights. As we neared Abu Simbel they played music (Chariots of Fire) as notification so we could have cameras ready.

We traveled on the Movenpick MS Prince Abbas with our Odyssey tour group. We had a wonderful tour director who led us through remarkable sites and Nubian temples. The Temples of Philae was our first visit in Aswan. The next day we visited the Kalabasha Temple which was moved and reconstructed on higher ground and impressive. We also saw the Dakka Tample, the Temple of Amada, the settlement of Karr Ibrim, other sites and the most spectacular, the Abu Simbel Temple Complex. Great Trip!

We used Odysseys unlimited for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. We have traveled a lot in the past with a much more expensive company and expected less, but got almost as much! The hotels were great, the itinerary perfect and our guide was top notch.

Going on a cruise on Lake Nasser is not only a trip through time, seeing the southernmost part of one of the most ancient civilizations on Earth, but also relaxing experience in some of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen. From splendid beaches to desolate deserts, I strongly suggest it.
