04 Nights - 05 Days Private Nile Cruise from Luxor to Aswan with Private Guide
Explore the ancient culture of Luxor and Aswan and the beauty of the River Nile.The Nile was the lifeline of ancient Egyptian civilization and today the banks of the river are dotted with ancient tombs and temples.

Lying 420 miles south of Cairo, Luxor is the most dramatic historical site in Egypt - and is often referred to as the world’s greatest open air museum. Luxor is the modern day name for Thebes, the ancient capital city of the New Kingdom Pharaohs. Today, Luxor is home to more than half of Egyptian antiquities and is a must-see destination for any visitor to Egypt.

Aswan is the “Jewel of the Nile”. Pink and grey granite thrusts upward through the Nubian sandstone, forming mountains, cliffs and jagged outcrops. The Nile runs clear and cold here, and endless waves of golden sand swirl against its banks.

Hello, We are scheduled for our egypt trip next week. Today, I was informed by our tour operator that our Nile River Cruise ship (originally MS Grand Rose) had technical issues and can NOT sail at full capacity. So they have now switched us to MS Opera Nile Ship and has upgraded us to Suite rooms at no cost. Has anyone sailed MS Opera Nile recently? I am looking for some review on the ship. I am unable to find any information on the web related to ship. The only post that I found was from 2010/2011 so pretty old. That also leads me to believe the ship is pretty old. My tour operator is telling me that the Opera Nile cruise is a grade above MS Grand Rose so it would be in the 5* Superior Deluxe category but it's strange that I am unable to find any reviews on it. Any help or comments here would be greatly appreciated.
