When we told the Red Sea representativethat this was not the ship we had booked she simply told us that the Grand Rose was being re-furbished... More

The 4 day/night Nile cruise with the Oberoi Philae is a luxury way to visit ancient Egypt. The ship is beautiful, our suite was incredible, the service excellent and the egyptologist who guided our tours extremely passionate and knowledgeable. We strongly recommend the Oberoi Philae or the sister ship.

Unforgettable cruise along the Nile between Aswan and Luxor. We took the four day / three night package. Comfortable rooms, great food, hospitable boat crew. The tours were incredible. Visited so many temples such as Philae, Luxor, Karnak, Hatshepsut, Edfu, Kom Ombo. Plus the Aswan High Dam.

All the meals were well prepared and varied, the dining room staff were very attentive and had a sense of humor even though there was a bit of... More

We had a terrific cruise aboard the Sonesta St. George! The boat was very nice and the cabins were cozy. I especially loved the shower! The staff was very friendly. The food was ok for breakfast and lunch but dinner seemed to be not as good. Still the dining staff did a great job. Special shout out to Issac! Definitely... More

It was an awesome experience. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. I loved the events they came up with like Egyptian night. Never had such and experience and I truly loved it although the wifi connection was weak :/ and rather expensive. Wifi should be free and available to all guests.

Cruised the fertile & longest (i.e. 6670 km ) river Nile, from Aswan to Luxor. Picturesque, green banks alongside the mighty river. On the banks of river Nile, the ancient Egyptian civilization stands tall after almost 5000 years. Boarded at Aswan, visited the Nubian village, Aswan high dam . Cruise halted at Abu simbel, Kom Ombo and Philae Temple in... More
