We were scheduled for the 3 night sailing from Abu Simbel to Aswan aboard the MS Prince Abbas. The room was incredibly filthy and worn out. The carpets have NEVER been cleaned; thick dirt, dust and insects have collected in all corners, the lampshades and on the baseboards. The A/C unit vent into the room was gray and thick with...

Did a tour cruise on Lake Nasser on the M/S Prince Abbas. Service and food on the boat was excellent. Rooms were clean and housekeeping kept it that way. As there were only 30 people on the boat during the cruise we practically had the boat to ourselves. It was quiet and restful.

Lake Nasser is a vast reservoir in southern Egypt and northern Sudan. Strictly, "Lake Nasser" refers only to the much larger portion of the lake that is in Egyptian territory (83% of the total), with the Sudanese preferring to call their smaller body of water Lake Nubia The area of Sudan-administered Wadi Halfa Salient was largely flooded by Lake Nasser/Lake...

Well done. Beautiful place and totally functional. In harmony with the cultural heritage. Dismantling and reconstruction of Ramses and Nefertiti temples absolutely remarkable. Wow.

What an amazing three days, though we did have the whole boat to the four of us. Personal service to the extreme! A not to be missed trip. Our boat was the Movenpick MS Prince Abbas. We sailed from Abu Simbel to Aswan, visiting several Temples that had been moved when the lake was formed. Nothing around except the temples... More

This review is quite late. The blue waters of Lake Nasser are visible from the Ramses Temple in Abu Simbel. From a distance it looks so beautiful and impressive in the middle of the Nubian desert. Lake Nasser is actually a huge artificial lake that was created by the opening of the Aswan High Dam.

The sheer size of the lake and the blue hue of the water is really impressive. It almost looks like a sea. One can view it while visiting Abu Simbel. It's also home to white salmon served in many Egyptian restaurants.

The only reason to take this cruise is the visit to Abu Simbel and the Ramses temple. Having said that, it is too bed that our particular trip on the Movenpick Prince Abbas only allowed for two hours at the site. Our cruise was a return trip from Aswan. Because of lack of tourists, there was. I return flight from... More

Forget your cares,your contacts and your computer. If you love tranquillity, Big starry skies, Desert landscapes and relaxing on a comfortable small boat The African Angler Safari could be for you. We particularly enjoyed the tasty meals served on deck of the mother boat and wonderful long walks exploring the desert islands with or without our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide... More
