I have been to Egypt quite a few times but have never been on a Nile cruise, which I am rectifying in early February. I have read a few forums but wondered if anyone could answer my questions who has completed a Nile cruise recently.
I am going with Thomson's Presidential cruise:
Do you know which boat it is?
Is it best to take £s and exchange on the boat or is better value here?
Are there towels available for the pool? (Should I expect services to be as per a hotel?)
Was your boat full? Approximately how many fellow travellers?
What is the UK/non-UK ratio on the boat?
Any tips on getting better cabins - if there are better ones?
The weather sites look promising, what were the feel like temps like - both day & night?
What did you do on the day of rest in Aswan (if you don't want to do Abu).
Was the balloon ride worth it? I hear Thomson's don't do the breakfast in the dessert version after the ride.
I'm ok on how to dress off the boat etc, but any advice on anything else that you think I should be prepared for would be most welcome.
Sorry to go on, but i just want to be prepared. Any helpful responses are greatly appreciated.
