We spent 4 fantastic days cruising fom Luxor to Aswan on the Sonesta Moon Goddess in early May. The boat was the only one we saw in the entire trip which had balconies, several boats had sliding doors but the only thing outside the door was a rail. They could get fresh air but not go out. Each cabin has a private balcony with room for 2 chairs and a small table, it was lovely in the afternoons sat there with a cold drink watching the nile go by.
Food on board was brilliant we had a 4 course dinner every night and the food and service were first class. Lunch and breakfast was just as good. Afternoon tea was on the upper deck, tea coffee biscuits and cake or fruit every day was a nice way to wind down and watch the sunset.
Site visits along the way were organised by Sonesta and were first class too. The guides were very knowledgeable and very helpful, transport was good and we had plenty of time at all the sites.
