7 night cruise on the 7th May 2008
General comments on the boat -
Extremely clean and well furnished - public areas
Same for the cabins - lower deck cabins are huge
Staff were always polite and attentive and nothing was too much trouble
Food was very good with plenty of choice
Had no problem with the drinks and no one ripped us off
Evening entertainment wasn't brilliant but what there was (especially the Galabya night) was fantastic with everyone joining in
The passengers - eleven English and thirteen German
We all had a great time together
Just a note about the m/s Semiramis
When we went onto this boat for our rep meeting we noticed the public areas were untidy and full of smoke
It was certainly worth booking the Terramar
The tour guide, was unbelievable
Not just with his knowledge of all things Egyptian but his sense of humour was amazing
Morning visits to the sites were early but it's what you would expect - we had temperatures reaching 125 degrees
They were extremely well organized and on time with air conditioned buses
Highlights were the trip by air to Abu Simbel and especially the hot air balloon ride at sunrise over the Valley of the Kings - if anyone does one trip it has to be this!
A truly memorable, exhilarating and magical holiday that ended too soon.
Anyone going in the next few weeks say hi to the barman. He's got my tie!
