Many cruise vacation packages to Egypt include airfare in the total costs – you can get on a plane in the United States and fly to Cairo, and then catch a quick connecting flight to the city of Luxor to begin your cruise. Egyptian cruises travel along the course of the Nile River, stopping at the sites of major temples so that you can disembark and take tours to learn about ancient Egyptian culture. While you are on the ship, you can enjoy the vistas of the Egyptian desert – the stark beauty of the desert alongside the beautiful sparkling blue waters of the Nile is one of the main draws of any Nile river cruise.

There are also many cruise packages which combines trips down the Nile River with cruise routes through the Mediterranean, as the Mediterranean Sea is where the Nile River empties out. Depending on what you would like to see, there are lots of options which will allow you to enjoy the greatest number of sights on your vacation. Not only is the area of Egypt serviced by cruise lines beautiful and culturally significant, you can have fun on board the ship with the various pools and entertainment options which let you enjoy a vacation at your own pace.

You do not have to think about making reservations for hotels and for flights – all you need to do is get on the boat and then you have the option of getting off and enjoying any of a variety of sights wherever the cruise liner makes a stop. With prices for cruises getting lower all the time, a trip to Egypt on a cruise ship is one of the best ways to experience the country!
