It is better when a hotel moves with you rather than you move your luggage. I took MS Egypt cruise and it was really nice one.

Just returned from one week Nile cruise. Thoroughly recommend. Good balance between seeing the sites and relaxing on board ship, although they get you up early to avoid the hottest part of the day. Guides were amazing, and you have the same guide all week which provides continuity. The food was good but vegetarians might struggle for variety. There is some evening entertainment but a lot of people go to bed early because of the very early starts. The tours are good and the extra tours at a charge are very reasonable. Sound and Light show at Philae temple well worth it.

We were part of a 2 day at hotel then 7 nights cruising and then 5 nights back at the hotel. We had a 5 hour coach journey from the hotel to the boat which was not a good experience on the way down, as the bus had no seat belts and a number of the seats were broken. When we arrived at the boat there was no area to drive in to so people were stood on the road side trying to identify their cases which was dangerous.
Once on the boat we found the cabins a good size and well equipped with a good sized bath/shower (something which annoys my husband when they are small). The ship was in a better condition than I expected based on previous write ups. OK there were some areas on the sun deck which could have been improved such as light bulbs out and seats on chairs broken but for what we paid for the holiday it was acceptable.It would have been nice to have been given a bit of advice regarding what happens if there is a problem with the boat.
The food was good and buffet style with a selection to cater for all tastes we especially liked the Egyptian theme night. The entertainment in the evening was a bit disappointing with a badly light Nubian evening with a belly dancer the only main event which was over by 10pm, The mic failed to work on the welcome day and on other occasions
There was a camera man on board filming the 7 days and always trying to catch us to watch the continual filming of waving and saying cheers which was very annoying and we kept trying to avoid him.
All the trips were extra and the trip to Abu Simbel was one that we did not want to miss and was a three hour bus journey away but we did think the £80 each we paid was a little bit high. We enjoyed all the trips to the various temples and valley of the kings which seemed a lot of money at the time £160 each for the package but was not to be missed. The Balloon trip at £85 each is a must with a total of 10 balloons going up and flying over some temples. Also taken is £27 each which covers tips for the whole crew but if anyone in your opinion stands out you can give extra tips.
It was not unusual for other boats to be tied alongside sometimes over night and at other times just for a few hours which blocks any view from the cabin.
Be under no illusions Egypt is a very cultural and interesting country which we felt sate travelling through but is a very polluted country and the Nile is no exception

Advertised as 5*, 3* at best. Cabins roomy and well equipped; public areas clean and spacious; sundeck needs overhaul (a lot of wooden walkway pieces were loose, handrails at the rear of boat were loose and very dirty from diesel fumes, life rings were broken open and generally in a poor condition). Food was, generally, very poor. Same meats/vegetables/sweets almost every day and meats were almost always presented in sauces, fine if you don't mind eating what you can't see!. All passengers paid 27GBP (or equivalent for other nationalities) for drivers/tips/baggage handling as part of the initial contract, yet when leaving boat to return to Hurghada, the staff were holding hands out for money to 'walk' the bags 10 metres to the side of the coach! Yes, I've heard it said hundreds of times that this is part of their 'makeup'. Frankly, having now been to Egypt 7 times, it really starts to grate! Trip sold as 7 night Nile cruise....2 nights in Luxor, 2 nights in Aswan.....where's the '7 night cruise'? The reps on board were arrogant, only seeming interested in selling trips which on the whole were poorly organised and very expensive (eg Abu Simbel, 3 hours each way on the coach with only 2 hours there....and all for the 'bargain' price of 80GBP per person!!!)
Always wanted to do a Nile cruise, and quite disappointed now. Villages, towns, the desert areas close to roads, and the canals AND the Nile were littered with plastics and all kinds of other rubbish (it seems nobody cares about the state of the country, probably because rubbish-tipping is a way of life!) Whilst at Aswan, there were 3 'rubbish' boats moored just in front of the Emilio. We watched as the contents of one boat were tipped over the side into the main stream of the Nile....disgusting. Now I know where a large amount of plastic comes from when it ends up in the Mediterranean.

We have just done the 7 day cruise on the "Nile Ruby". The trip was fantastic.
Food on the boat well presented and cooked, very creative.
The staff could not have done any more , they were fantastic. Very friendly and helpful.
We were told that the cabins were not very big but we found them more than adequate. My only niggle would be that it was due for a refurb, but this in no way detracted from our enjoyment of the whole experience
