We just returned from a 16-day trip to Egypt. We started our journey in Luxor, boarding the ms Monica Nile Cruiser for a 5 day trip from Luxor to Aswan. Two words -- simply remarkable.
The beauty and cleanliness of the ship was incredible, the service was so personal and genuine, the food was delicious and plentiful, and the excursions were very well organized and informative. Thank you to our fabulous guide who's passion about the Egyptian history and culture made it so delightful.
Every room has a balcony, something that most Nile ships do not have. Many times when we were relaxing in our room we would sit on the balcony and just say wow, we are sailing the Nile, a long time dream of mine.
The roof deck had a pool and plenty of chairs for sunbathing or lounging in the shade, whichever you prefer.
The food was incredible, usually mixing up Egyptian, Lebanese, Indian and We ate Egyptian, after all, we were in Egypt. The wait staff was extraordinarily friendly and courteous.
We had Egyptian night as well where we all bought galabiyas, and wore them for the party. I dressed up like Cleopatra. After the dinner, there was belly dancing music in the bar lounge. So much fun.
Would I go again? In a heartbeat. This was a fantastic way to start our trip in Egypt -- highly recommended. Thank you to the entire staff of the ms Monica
