“Agatha Christie not Bling on Ms Commadore”

Written on: 13/04/2013 by timandhilary (1 review written)

MS Commador. After doing 3 nile cruises before this one, our previous experience was one of luxury with marble and brass. The organisation by tompson was first class in every respect. But on arriving at the boat we were dissapointed as the exterior looked dirty. On entering the boat it looked drab and dull, mainly because the interior is dark wood which makes it look dated. The cabin was adequate but also dark and dated. But as the trip proceeded we tended to overlook the presentation… Read Full Review

“Nile Cruise”

Written on: 18/03/2013 by Davyhippy (1 review written)

My wife and I , celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary on an excellent Thomson River Nile cruise , The Staff on the Boat were 1st class and very friendly, My advise to anyone going is to just go on the trips that go with the deal, we went to see the pyramids and had to wake at 3 3o am and coach to Luxor Airport , fly to Cairo then sit in traffic jams for hours only to be blinded by a sandstorm at the pyramids , we finally got back to the boat at 12 45 pm , a very long day away from a lovely… Read Full Review

“best egypt cruise”

Written on: 02/12/2012

My family went on a nile cruise on the MS Commodore for the last week in November 2012 and it was the best thing we ever did. We found the staff friendly the ship spotless and the food amazing and would recommend this ship to everyone. The only problem was the difference in exchange rates making the drinks a little too expensive but if you change your money in Egypt (or buy duty free from the plane) the rates are good.All the staff went out of there way to be helpful and polite especially mi mi… Read Full Review

“A scruffy boat in need of an urgent refurbishment. ”

Written on: 11/11/2012

Myself and my wife booked a holiday with Longwoods who are supposedly one of the better company's for this type of holiday. About two weeks after booking our holiday we received a telephone to say that our start day had changed from Monday to Wednesday and we were flying on a Thomson A/C.This did not bother us too much until we tried to book extra legroom we were told we would have to wait until 7 days of the flight ,we managed this after three expensive calls but were told we would have to… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/09/2012 by cruiseaholic (2 reviews written)

Had an absolutely fantastic time, we really didn't want to come home. The thomson rep Mohammed was with out doubt, the best rep the wife and I have ever come across hard working constantly smiling, funny and helpful if he could he would have lifted the valley of the kings and brought it to the boat he probably tried when we weren't looking. Our guide Dahliah, without wishing to sound ridiculous also was the very best you could possibly hope for, from the way she calmly and beautifully brought… Read Full Review

“Nile Commodore - A holiday to remember!!”

Written on: 22/10/2011 by Wendy9 (1 review written)

I have just returned from a holiday in Egypt where we spent the first week aboard the Nile Commodore. What a fantastic holiday! The minute you step onboard you feel like you have jumped straight into an Agatha Christie book. The boat was spotlessly clean and each and every member of staff went out of their way to make sure we had a fantastic time. Although your days start very early (!) I can honestly say that this is the best holiday I have ever had. Being a bit of an Egyptian history nerd I… Read Full Review

“Nile Cruise on PNC Commodore”

Written on: 17/09/2011

We have just returned form the PNC Commodore cruise although it was a last minute booking accomodation and staff were excellent. The egyptologists on board were very knowledgable and entertaining and brought history to life. We went full board but were offered All Inclusive when we arrived which we did not think was very good value at a further £115 per person for the week. by not doing this we had extra money to spen d on the extra trip we wanted to do to Abu Simbel. The only problem with PNC… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/09/2011 by DebraCoates (1 review written)

My sister and I chose this cruise as a celebration for our dads 80th and wanted it to be special. It most definitely was from the moment we stepped on board our fantastic holiday began. Rooms were spotless and tidy, fresh towels twice a day, clean bedding always. Every member of staff without exception could not do enough for us and made us all feel special all the time.Food was fresh and tasty and plentiful no one was ill due to everything being prepared using bottled water. Egyptologists… Read Full Review

This was my lady friends and my first visit to Egypt and will definitely not be our last.Everything about the cruise was first class and we could not have been looked after any better,the cabins,food.entertainment and other facilities were backed up by superb service from the crew ranging from Omar the cabin boy to the ship's manager.We would highly recommend this holiday they even let us take over the ship's controls!Can't wait to go back and fit in the excursions we didn't have time for all… Read Full Review

“Just came back from a brilliant time. ”

Written on: 23/04/2011

Just came back from a brilliant time.
The boat was fine and the rooms bigger than we expected. I went with another teacher friend who has also done a lot of traveling and we could not complain. It was Hot! Got up to 49 one day and so we did not complain about the early starts - so it was cooler to look artound the temple. I aslo took the optional trip to Abu Simbel - by coach - a long trip but I loved it, -others flew. I aslo did the day trip to Cairo - again a long day but under the present… Read Full Review

The commodore was clean, well maintained and the staff were superb, they couldn't do enough to help. The jewellers was great and Steve the owner was extremely helpful. Our guide Osamar was a dear and brought the past to life, there wasn't a question he couldn't answer he literally knew everything. the food was lovely with variation each day. cruising the Nile is so peaceful and the temples etc are magnificent. I liked everything about the trip, our rep was very helpful, we researched… Read Full Review

I was a little concerned after reading reviews on the Commodore but we were all pleasantly surprised. We were aged 48, 48, 58, 73. The rooms need to be refurbished but what a fabulous chef, the food was superb and the staff were friendly. The best part of the cruise for me was watching life on the Nile as we floated past. The excursions were just amazing and our guide Ragar was the best. We made lots of friends good company, good food good staff what more could you ask for? We upgraded to… Read Full Review

As for The Commodore, I defy you not to enjoy this lovely boat and its brilliant staff from cabin boys to management,would reommend to anyone, special mention must go to our guides they are superb, Steve in the jewellers store is one of the nicest people ever, I know we bought jewellery from him but he went above and beyond, he even drove to… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because...never been on a cruise before and did not know what to expect. Though having seen the programme referred to in the comments I thought it looked superb.

Could I ask, who you booked your trip with? Was it a chartered holiday like Thompsons or did you book flights,trip etc as individual components?

“Nile Commodore - Feb 9th ”

Written on: 20/02/2010 by andrewbuchanan (1 review written)

Nile Commodore - Feb 9th
We had a lot of worries about traveling to an Arab country, but we had a wonderful time! The actual cruise and schedule were very well balanced, with the tours in the mornings and the afternoons to relax and watch the Nile go by. Having done a Danube cruise last year, we can say the Nile is 10 times prettier. The boat was comfortable, the staff very friendly. Anyone who has done 'posh' sea cruises before may be disappointing with the overall comfort/cleanliness/food… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/09/2009

We traveled on the MS Nile Commodore. I was a little concerned having read a number of reviews about the boat being tired in appearance and the quality of the food. However,this was misplaced as the boat , staff , food and trips were of the highest quality. For breakfast there are choices of cereals, variety of eggs , croissants , breads ,hot food etc. The lunches were better and the deserts were to die for.The evenings are more formal and you are served at your table to a set menu 9 4… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/10/2009

I'm sorry, I cannot agree with this customer's view about the food on the Nile Commodore. I have been on this boat 4 times, so far,(Feb '09 last) and have always found a good choice of food at meal times. For breakfast you can choose cereal, fresh fruit, fruit salad, omlettes, warm food (does vary,but it is Egypt not Britain), croissants, breads/toast with a selection of jam or marmalade, all of which is well presented. To say "hot dog sausages and crisps" (I must say I can't remember seeing crisps at breakfast!)gives the idea that there were no other choices available,but this is not the case. I would certainly not have returned so many times if the food had been that unpalatable.I have also always received excellent service throughout the boat and would be more than happy to return.

Was this customer on the Nile Commodore ? I don't think so.
<br/>We have been on this boat twice before and are going for a third.
<br/>The boat, staff and meals are excellent.

Written on: 20/03/2009 by brokebuthappy (1 review written)

This was our secod trip aboard ms Commodore and we were delighted to see familiar faces who also recognised us after two and a half years. We went to relax & recharge our batteries and cannot fault the ever accommodating staff Bad points in our opinion. Half measures of very expensive local lager ( £5 stirling ) and non use of measure (usually bottle top) of shorts ( £6 stirling) & then not even full cap full. Staff seemed embarrassed when this was pointed out. Over all a great holiday but… Read Full Review
