Esna Lock Closure

The lock was closed when I went on the Emilio on the 12 Dec 2005 and was reopened on the 18th when we all went up on deck at 2:30 am just to see what happened. The lock closure is no big deal.. it just means you are coached around it on the way from the airport and get on the boat on the far side. You wont miss out on a thing because of it so please dont let that stop you from booking!

Karein Egypt.. thanks for all your good advice to the forum. I read what you say with great interest.

Thank you Silk! I'm really glad you enjoyed your cruise on the Emilio. I just toured her on Sunday while I was down in Luxor/Aswan on one of my periodic "inspection" visits and was very impressed with her. I'll write up a report on the boats I toured in due course, as soon as I wade through the backlog of correspondence that accumulated while I was away... :-D
