DO NOT BOOK an NTS cruise ship. We have just returned from the Nile and were supposed to be on the above ship.When we arrived at the Key side we was told we had been switched to M/S Nile Dolphin without consulting us.Due to the lack of tourists they are doing this all the time. Make sure your booking has a clause saying they cannot change ship without your permission (read more)

My partner & I just returned from a long awaited trip to Cairo & the Nile. We cruised on board Miss Egypt - 5* Luxury advertised. On the whole this was a very memorable trip with a lot to do and see, with adequate rest in between leaving you very well informed about Ancient Egypt.
As a first trip the itinerary gave us a very complete introduction to the very impressive history. Our guide Mustafa was a passionate, considerate, informed & very mature young man who controlled our small group... (read more)

We have only good memories about Miss Egypt. The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home. The accomodation was very good, a wide variety of food and definetely enough: new years eve even too much food ! I can only praise the cooks, and my favorita: the pasta bar !
You have to pay for drinks... of course, I always knew it like this in any other hotel in any other country...
There might be noise from the disco but it never takes long, as you have to get up early for the... (read more)

I was a litte dismayed when I read the reviews of Miss Egypt below having booked the cruise, and having reread them with hindsight make the following comments. I was disappointed when we got on board as this did not look like 5*delux or refurbished. However, don't let first appearences fool you. The beds were very comfortable, the staff very attentive and friendly, the cabins a reasonable size. The showers are trendy but small - toilets flush and you can put paper down them! The food...

We are a family of 7 and only 2 of us knew where we we going; it had taken a lot of research to, hopefully, get the right ship for us, as we did as everyone was highly delighted with it all.
Yes the cabins and bathrooms are now in need of a touch of paint but the view from those cabins is fantastic, and, yes, when you are moored up you could have another cruise ship either side of you, but when the sun comes down who cares, it's quite an adventure in itself when you disembark and have to go...

Beware of the ships rep who meets you at the airport. It is very simple to obtain a Visa for just £10.00 at one of the many banks at luxor airport before you go through immigration. The rep will charge you £15.00 !!! Cleanliness of boat was very good. We booked a double room but got a twin! asked to be far away from disco but our room was underneath !. Reception Staff had totally ignored our accomodation voucher from Sunway Travel. Make sure you are not at the back of the boat as you wake... (read more)

Nile Cruises Direct, Miss Egypt.
Arrived in Luxor taken to the boat, luggage brought from the coach direct to your room, rooms very spacious, with patio door from ceili ng to floor, all food and excursions included in the price. There was also optional excursions you could take if desired at an extra cost. The guide Aladdin was brilliant, and was not only a superb guide, but also asked if we had enough time at all the visits. All trips are usually early morning or late afternoon, to... (read more)

An excellent holiday booked through NileCruisesDirect.com. Sure, the entertainment at night was limited but when you have to get up at anything from 5.30 to 7 a.m (2.30 am for Abu Simbel) you're too tired to bother- at least we were.
I found the ship clean, the staff friendly, courteous and helpful. Our guide,Ahmed, was absolutely brilliant and made visits to all the temples extremely interesting. Don't try to compare this trip with a sea cruise, the food isn't quite as good (but still of a... (read more)

A good sized cabin and shower room. Attentive staff,showing a high standard of cleanliness in all public areas. Good selection of food, served as a buffet.Sometimes food not very hot if the food covers had been left off.
Not a cruise for night life with poor organisation of evening entertainment and repetitive music.This was not a problem as our guided tours often started early morning to avoid the heat of the day. (read more)

Receptionist difficult did not want to deal with problem of air condition not working without making us feel we were difficult. The boat in general was clean and tidy not 5* in our opinion more 3 *, food cold more often than not, all drinks very expensive. No real entertainment apart from a coctail party of orange juice and the the offer of very expensive coctail, one type on offer only. The tipping is gauged by the guides who tell you how much to tip regardless of your view (250 LE),... (read more)

Not a bad experience but I would not consider another Nile Cruise, based on this holiday. The boats are docked in port sometimes four abreast, which of course means the only view from your window, when not sailing, is of another ships window. The diesel fumes from all the boats, when docked together, were at times unpleasant. (read more)

Our 4 days aboard Miss Egypt were a dream come true for my daughter (age 19) & myself. This was our 2nd trip to Egypt, & it exceeded our expectations in every way. We had a private guide, who did everything he could to make sure we had a great time. I am a lifelong amateur Egyptologist, & my daughter is working on becoming a professional one. So we came to Egypt with a good knowledge base, & he helped us learn a lot more.
