We sailed on the Esadora, maybe not the same as the Royal Esadora! A mature cruiser but very comfortable with well-appointed cabin (ours anyway). Great views as the Nile passes by; Very atmpspheric at night. Food was plentiful, varied and palatable. Bar tab became very mysterious and expensive. Having said that, who cares? The Egyptologist, Galal, was superb. Extremely knowledgeable, experienced guide who always got us to the best place at the best sites at the right time, before the crowds, before the heat. Galal's secret is to start out early! Very early. Very entertaining and easy to learn from. Galal's DIY entertainment night was a hoot, as was buying Arab costumes from a rowing boat hurtling done the Nile.
The temples and monuments speak their volumes, absolutely breathtaking everywhere. We did the hot-air balloon a couple of days before the recent accident. Wonderful!
We'll do it again one day
