We traveled through the Suez Canal on a recent cruise from Israel to Dubai. Having been through the Panama Canal several times, I thought I knew what to expect...but the Suez Canal was way more cool.

We sat from 5am when we entered the canal until 4pm when we exited at Port Said just glued to the spot.
We thoroughly enjoyed every moment.
Essentials ...........binoculars and a chart so that you can establish where you are at every moment.
A fascinating experience, with a whole day in transit affording many photo opportunities along the 120 miles at 8 knots. We had previously sailed through the Panama Canal but this was very different with mostly desert on both banks until close to the north reaches...More

Have only done the transit by cruise ship. Did observe several cargo ships, but never any smaller vessels. The cost to transit the Suez Canal may be cost prohibitive for smaller boats. Good luck in your quest.

Our tour guide at the valley of the Kings is from Cairo. She is a rotary member and trust her. Contact Deena Shehab. Giza rotary his site won’t let me put her email in here.

We are cruising from Dabai to Athens through the Suez Canal stopping in Oman, Egypt, Jordon, Israel and Cyprus. Do we need to take currencies for all of these countries or will they accept US dollars or Euros?

The easiest is to carry US$ which is easily converted or accepted in these countries. You can rely on using credit card

Hello, My name is Tamara. I am traveling with my mum from Eilat / Taba to Cairo with the East Delta Bus to Cairo on 16.10.2008. As I have never done it before I've got a million questions about this journey. First of all, I appreciate if someone can tell me the time tables for this bus, the price, where to buy the ticket, how much is the entrance tax to Egypt, which routes this bus take (I mean, does it cross the Sinai Desert?, Goes through the Suez Canal?) How long does it take...More

Hi Tamara, I notice that you've asked these questions a few times, and received a couple of answers that I don't think you have followed up on. To find out the best information about getting from Taba to Cairo, please post your questions on the EGYPT forum. It isn't going to help you much to continue posting the same question on this forum - most of us just don't have the information. Have a great time :-)
