Just spent a weeks cruise on the regency jazz. What a fantastic week it was. Not being drinkers we never took the option of £115 all inclusive so cant comment on whether it was worth it or not. No sooner had we joined the ship we were on the move. The cabins were spotlessly clean as were the bed linen and towels and they were kept that way all week. We paid the £90 each to go on the optional Abu Simbal trip. Some people were put off by the 4.35 start and the 3 and a half hour each way journey but we slept most of it and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our holiday. Abu Simbel is awesome. There was something going on most nights belly dancer Arab dress up night etc. The food of course was gorgeous. Plenty of choice. The money is easy to work out 10 Egyptian pounds to one English. Envelopes are given out at the end of the trip for tipping the crew and guides.its up to the individual what you give but they'll deserve every penny. On the point of tipping if you are the sort of person who gets upset by people constantly after you for tips then be prepared to be very very upset.but please thank your lucky stars it's not you.if you buy anything haggle. They expect it. By the way you'll meet some really nice people.
