Watch out for the bloke who puts your luggage on coach on arrival - he is not the coach driver - trying to make a fast buck.
Food terribly average - not five star at all - but they try hard and make the most of turning over food not used to the fullest for the next day. My husband didnt fare well here and actually had a cheese roll for his anniversary - however most people would manage with most of the food. Bear in mind that there is a bit of a food shortage for the majority of Egyptians.
Cabin fine although each night you are moored up against another boat so keep your curtains closed. Generator close by kept husband awake most nights - so may be go for a cabin that is higher up and not on main deck. He is a light sleeper.

Out of 600 ships only 30 operating so Egyptians clearly seeking tourists - can be in your face - but then only 30 per cent employment. Life could get even tougher for the Egyptians after the up coming elections.
