Nile Cruise boat sinks

Just read this report, no tourists were on board and crew members were rescued.

I think its one of the cruise boats that has been docked near to the El Luxor and has not been in service for a long, long time. Not 100% sure though.

This isn't really that rare these days, LoL !

Late last year there was a large Nile cruise boat that was burnt out and had sunk right outside the Sheraton.

The 'word' on the street (or the river) was that it was an 'insurance job'.

Not the one I am referring to hasn't suzychuck, it was there when I visited Luxor early last year (having NOT been there before) and then it had gone when I returned a few months later, you are thinking about a different boat, as, like I originally said, this kind of thing isn't particularly 'rare'.

Was on the Lotus on morning of the 27th and saw a cruise boat partially submerged as we were leaving Luxor. Wonder if it was the same one being resurfaced?!

When crossing the Nile on the local ferry, look towards the museum end of the new corniche and the boat can be clearly seen. It is on the riverside of some other boats.
