Nile Cruise Gents Arab Robe galabaya.

Anyone know how much the robes cost on the boat. We're going on a nile cruise soon and we'll apparently need one for a party!

Not sure if we should buy before we go or not - can anyone help? thanks.

You will be able to buy robes on board or barter for them at any of the places you are taken on trips ... you will even be chased to the coach by someone shouting 'Very cheap price!!!! Only five pounds!!!!'

The LE5 is of course 5 sterling.... for a child size... or 5 Nubian (which does not exist) etc etc All great fun if taken in good part. My Hawick born husband pretends to faint and offers Scottish or Welsh exchange rates!

There are lots of threads about robe prices but your cruise rep will suggest fair prices. Two years back we kitted out 3 adults with double robes, head dresses etc etc for less than £20. (my set was covered with embroidery and the head dress was heavily beaded, the men's sets were extra long & fitted my 6' 6" husband and son) I also got two scarves thrown in, but that took an extra 10 minutes haggling!
