Nile Cruise single traveller

Hello,

I would like to do a 5 days or so Nile Cruise in November. However, I am getting no where looking for a good deal on a cabin. I am sure some boast must have single cabins but every time I ask for a quote I am getting quoted the two person cost or pretty much the same. Are there any particular companies I could be enquiring of? Particular boats that might be suitable? I realise I might get shunted off to a different boat due to numbers. Then I have to find the easiest way of getting there from London area. Take it there are still no direct flights or just the option of Egyptair on a Monday?

Unfortunately the singles price is the same as two people in a cabin, unless you're prepared to share. If you contact them directly at short notice you may get a better deal but not usually.

British Airways flies everyday and we've usually found it cheaper than Egyptair

The direct Egyptair flight to Luxor is from Oct - May or use the daily flight via Cairo. No other UK carrier flies to Luxor. The other way would be to fly to Hughada and taxi/bus to Luxor if you can stand the 3-4 hour journey.

Might be worth contacting a Luxor agent,I was quoted single,double and triple rates for March....prices were very cheap compared to Travel agent prices.

March price per cabin.

$70 p/n Single

$90 p/n Double

$130 p/n triple

Full board...no tours included.

Friends who live in Luxor asked their travel agent there who also quoted $70 single per night. I was advised to wait until after arrival when it's possible to personally inspect the boats before booking. It's what I plan to do.

I was after same thing last year. Probably be better to ask when there if that's possible. If you want the contact details of the local travel agencies in the town I have a couple. I find it easier to just deal direct via whatsapp with them.
