The rooms are dirty. The food has no variety, always de same kind. The service bad, billing for internet that doesn't work, and not aplaying the official change in the invoice. Don't let to pay with credit card. The especial events short. The service allways asking for a tip… Read Full Review

Very good, very nice, fantastic food. However, MS Nile Festival cruise loses two points on the fact that the organisation at 'checking in' (boarding, more like) was so bad. We were in a group of 30 school children, British. It was 3 to a room, and, against British Law they put in a double and a single, and it wasnt sorted for another hour. However, very good… Read Full Review

I enjoyed my Nile cruise because I was hosted in a nice boat which is the MS Nile Festival.
Clean- Bravo to housekeeping who did their best to make our rooms clean :)
Nice Staff- we were 3 families with 5 children on board, they all bear us with a smile and friendly behavior towards all of us.
We never lost a thing on the boat, when we forget our valuable things (Mobiles, DVD player etc.) somewhere on the boat we get it back.
Good quality and tasty Food
Variety of Food
Safe for children.
Smooth… Read Full Review

The staff were very hospitable. Took care of every small requirement of the people. The Egyptian Party was good and they also celebrated people's birthdays. Value for Money. The food could have been better. Many times fruits were served as deserts… Read Full Review

At the time of writing, the boat was only two and half years old, the general condition was good and well up to the standard expected of it's 5 star rating. It appears there is a lack of a maintenance on some of the other boats you see, which gives the apperance of them being slightly tired.
Clean and tidy at all times, don't worry, you won't get a port hole to peer out of. All rooms have a full size sliding door, so if it gets too hot up on the sun deck then you won't miss much… Read Full Review

The staff on board were very hospitable and kind. The tours, both included and additional, were fantastic. The food was plentiful and of good quality. The original cabin that we were given was highly suspect and should never have been allocated to anyone.There was definitely a health and safety issue ( a wooden ceiling tile fell owing to the vibrations caused when the boat was sailing, just missing my friend's eye ) Unfortunately, since the ship was fully booked, it was not possible to move… Read Full Review

We had a great time on the MS Nile Festival cruise, it is an ideal way to see all the sites along the nile. Absolutely fantastic cruise, food was varied and very nice (as long as you don't want typical english dishes you will be ok) the chef who cracked the eggs for your omlettes on your head was very entertaining also. The staff on board were brilliant, rooms were cleaned twice daily. The masseur gives a great if not different massage, afternoon tea was a nice touch as well… Read Full Review

A wonderful cruise, the cabins are lovely, the food was great and the staff could not be more helpful. Our guide was superb, his knowledge of ancient egypt was overwhelming and he made the whole experience a truly memorable one. The trips were well organised and interesting - I recommend the motor boat ride, it was excellent. I took my children (18 and 13) and was worried they would be bored - no problem, they loved it… Read Full Review

I can't recommend an Egyptian Nile Cruise and the MS Nile Festival highly enough. Egypt isn't easy for independent travelling, due to the high levels of security for foreigners, so a Nile cruise is a painless (decadent) way to get around.
It's an incredible privilege to be able to look at (and could have touched) messages from the temple builders from 5000 years ago. The more you find out about Egyptian history, the more fascinating it becomes.
Our tours tended to start very early in the… Read Full Review

A dream Nile Cruise to recommend to everyone. Worth every penny we paid and looking forward to booking our next one on the same boat. Hopefully we will be able to have at least one holiday a year on the MS Nile Festival. We loved all the staff, management and guides, they all made our holiday so enjoyable. It is a holiday for all ages but people should be able to walk if they want to go on all the excursions. Even if you don't like walking or you are not as mobile, you can enjoy staying… Read Full Review
