Are Nile cruises safe?

Going for a cruise on the Nile in Egypt is very safe since the Egyptian authorities provide full protection. There is also high security at all places of interest along the route your cruise follows.

Is a 7-day Nile cruise worth it?

A 7-day Nile River cruise will typically include a bit more sightseeing than shorter cruises, or tours will be spaced further apart so as to allow more time for recreation and relaxation.

What to wear on Nile cruise?

Very few Nile cruises have a specific dress code so you can wear whatever you want while on the cruise boat. If you venture ashore, it is best to dress a bit conservatively.

How to book a Nile cruise?

Set yourself a budget, then visit the website of a reputable Egypt travel company and take a look at the Nile cruises being offered or simply contact them and tell them what exactly you want.

How much to tip on 7-day Nile cruise?

On days when you are given guided tours, consider tipping your guide about $10 to $12. A total tip of about $10 per day for crew is recommended, so about $70 in total for the crew. 

Note: Tipping is not mandatory!

What to expect on a 7-day Nile cruise?

A 7-day Nile cruise is generally very similar to a shorter 5-day cruise but the pace is slower and you tend to have more free time for yourself. Expect lots of guided tours throughout your cruise.

7-Day Nile Cruises

7 Day Nile Cruises

Not everyone has plenty of time of their hand, but that does not mean they cannot enjoy one of the most unforgettable vacations ever, a luxury Nile River cruise through the heart of ancient Egypt. In fact, our 7-day Nile cruises have been designed and created specifically for people who only have a few days to spare. These short 7-day cruises are literally filled to the brim with sightseeing opportunities, while at the same time providing ample time for leisure and relaxation.

7-Day Nile Cruises are All About Epic Sightseeing

From the moment you arrive, to the moment you leave, the sightseeing doesn’t end. You’ll enjoy sightseeing excursions from day one of your cruise, regardless of where your cruise begins. Shortly after embarkation, you will be served a fine onboard lunch, and then it will be time for the fun to begin.

Which historical sites you visit on the first day of your cruise vacation will depend on whether your chosen cruise departs from Aswan or from Luxor. Either way, you will be taken to see all the best historical attractions in both these fascinating places, either at the start of your cruise or towards the end of your cruise.

While most of our 7-day Nile cruises run from Luxor to Aswan (aka Luxor Nile cruises) or from Aswan to Luxor (aka Aswan Nile cruises), we also offer a round-trip cruise which departs from Luxor and ends in Luxor. This cruise will also see you visiting ancient sites in Edfu, Kom Ombo, and Aswan, but instead of terminating at Aswan, you will sail back to Luxor, spending a night on the water at Esna along the way.

All our 7-day Nile cruises include excursions to all the same attractions, so no matter which cruise you choose, you will still get to see the same amazing sites, including places like Kom Ombo Temple, Edfu Temple, Valley of the Kings, Queen Hatshepsut’s mortuary temple, and the fantastic Temple of Philae.

5-Star Luxury Cruises

While all our cruises are luxury cruises, our 7-day Nile cruises really are luxury cruises. All the boats which feature in our selection of 7-day cruises are 5-Star river cruisers where luxury and comfort are the order of the day. Expect world-class dining, world-class amenities, and fun-filled entertainment, all of which blend together seamlessly to ensure that your Nile cruise holiday will be a cruise you will never forget.

Customized Tour Packages

While we cannot customize the actual cruises which we offer, we can certainly customize private tour of Egypt based on your own individual needs and requirements. In other words, our 7-day Nile cruises can be incorporated into broader tour package. In fact, our 7-day cruises already feature in some of our other Egypt travel packages. Such tours will usually include some amazing sightseeing in Cairo, and/or a few days in Hurghada on the Red Sea coast.

With Egypt Tours Plus, anything is possible. Just tell us what your dreams are, and we will do our best to make them come to life, just like we have been doing ever since 1955.
