My wife and I recently returned from a trip to Egypt in which we took a three-day cruise on the Omar El Khayam traveling from Abu Simbel to Aswan. We were both very favorably impressed with this ship. Our cabin was reasonably spacious and kept clean all the time, as was the entire ship. The food was quite good and... More

The Jaz Omar el Khayham cruise ship is no longer,in my opinion, as described in the company website or as described on google websites. The drawbacks are perhaps individually minor but add up to a lower quality cruise than I paid for or expected. Firstly the bottled water is charged for on board, in a country where you are always...

Our group of 22 cruised this November. The cruise was one of the highlights of our trip to Egypt. The ship was well run, the staff were outstanding, and the dining was excellent. I just wish we could have had a little longer before we headed up the Nile and back to Cairo. It was so relaxing and amazing to... More

One of those bucket list experiences with great sunsets. The omar el khayam is very clean and spruce and run by a very hands on hotel manager with a great personality. The public spaces are huge and in first class condition. It was a quarter full just a Viking goup and seven independents. We had booked a group tour with... More

We did a lake cruise on the Omar El Khayam as part of our tour of Egypt and found it very pleasant. Some of the small temples we saw along the way were interesting, although all had been relocated.

We were scheduled for the 3 night sailing from Abu Simbel to Aswan aboard the MS Prince Abbas. The room was incredibly filthy and worn out. The carpets have NEVER been cleaned; thick dirt, dust and insects have collected in all corners, the lampshades and on the baseboards. The A/C unit vent into the room was gray and thick with...

Did a tour cruise on Lake Nasser on the M/S Prince Abbas. Service and food on the boat was excellent. Rooms were clean and housekeeping kept it that way. As there were only 30 people on the boat during the cruise we practically had the boat to ourselves. It was quiet and restful.

Strictly, "Lake Nasser" refers only to the much larger portion of the lake that is in Egyptian territory (83% of the total), with the Sudanese preferring to call their smaller body of water Lake Nubia The area of Sudan-administered Wadi Halfa Salient was largely flooded by Lake Nasser/Lake...

Well done. Beautiful place and totally functional. In harmony with the cultural heritage. Dismantling and reconstruction of Ramses and Nefertiti temples absolutely remarkable. Wow.
