Egypt tour is an experience of lifetime. You get to explore the human civilizations’ glorious past including art, culture, and architecture. There are multiple UNESCO World heritage sites to look around. However, Egypt’s tour is incomplete without a mesmerizing cruise down the River Nile. Admiring the fascinating scenery and sights of Egypt from a totally new perspective can offer an unforgettable experience.
In Egypt, a Nile cruise vacation is quintessential, but you need to look for good deals on the internet and book in advance. The cruises are expensive, but you get a variety of packages to choose from as per your budget. Book the package that suits your needs, preferences and budget. Luxor to Aswan cruise itinerary is longer than the on-road journey.
Mostly, Luxor to Aswan or Aswan to Luxor cruise is for 3 to 4 days on a luxury liner. If you have time constraints, then choose cruise options for shorter duration. You can even book a ride on a traditional Egyptian sailboat, but there will be no luxury of the cruise. However, it is an authentic experience! You can choose a day or a night cruising package.
How does flexibility help to get Budgeted cruise tickets?
Online cruise packages start at $409 per day on a basic ship similar to a 4-star hotel. The commission is huge, and thus can be expensive if you book it just before your travel. The only alternative is to wait till the last minute, which can be challenging if the cruise is jam-packed or you are unable to plan an itinerary well.
Be flexible to get a budgeted deal in advance. Consider your traveling season, which means going on a cruise in the low season [September to November & February to April] can easily get you a budgeted cruise booking.
Another aspect to consider is the schedule of the cruise. The cruises from Luxor or Aswan and vice versa are not scheduled daily, and it departs 2 to 3 times in a week. Therefore, be flexible with dates to score a budgeted cruise deal.
If you are lucky, a ship may have last-minute bookings and may dock one-day before your return flight. You can find a stellar deal because many ships arrive and depart daily. Talk to the cruise scouts because they know if ships have vacancy, which needs to be filled with last-minute bookings.

Be prepared for weather changes
From October to April, the weather is pretty cool, so it is an ideal time to take a cruise in Egypt. As you will be sailing on the water, the environment gets chilly between Nov to Feb. A chilly breeze offers great relief from scorching hot days, but can feel uncomfortable and freezing, in the evenings. Therefore, carry a fashionable and yet comfortable shrug or light shawl to layer up, if the weather gets chilly.
Traveling with kids need proper planning
For adults, sailing across the river water for 2 to 3 days can be completely relaxing and joyous, but if accompanied with kids, then they may find it non-dynamic and slow. Children get bored easily and can become disruptive. It is sensible to plan well like choose a cruise offering kids activity and pool option. Carry some of their favorite games, toys, crayons, etc. to keep them engaged and turn less troublesome.
- Avoid alcohol drinking, especially if you suffer from balance issues.
- Avoid smoking in bed because the mattresses are flammable!
- On a fast-moving cruise, especially at night, avoid spending time on the deck. Travelers struggling with balance issues should be very careful.
- If you feel sick onboard get checked with a resident doctor. In case of emergency, doctors assigned in every town can be called.
- Before getting on board, exchange your currency at the local bank, because cruise boats don’t provide this facility
Enjoy a fantastic Egypt Nile Cruise lifetime experience!
