Heerlijke Luxe week op de Ms . Terramar,een klein schip ,dus aandacht voor elkaar (waren met z,n zessen aan boord, 2 engelse,2 duitsers ) Veel privacy! Het eten(a la carte) was zalig en afwisselend ,de bediening fantastisch. De jongens van de huishouding verschoonden de kamer (handdoeken, pedaalemmer) wel 3x op een dag ! Vooral ober Ali heeft ons hart gestolen !!! Iedereen was even vriendelijk en ... correct. We vierden ons 30 jarig Huwelijk op de boot en de bemanning verwenden ons met een… Read Full Review

Just returned from a truly magnificent holiday. It is very hard to find something new to say about the Terramar, I don't think I have read anything bad about the ship. From the Suites, staff,guide,food - everything is just fabulous. Difficult to pick highlights,we enjoyed Abu Simbel, we flew, and afternoon tea at the Old Cataract Hotel, Aswan. We can strongly recommend the MS Terramar in all aspects - just magic… Read Full Review

We were recommended this particular cruise boat by our well trusted travel agent at the Co-op Travel in Derby (Ben). We looked at some of the recent reviews that were all positive and felt that we were in for a treat.
I have to say that this holiday is going to take some beating. From the moment we were welcomed on board by the very friendly and helpful staff we felt at ease and comfortably relaxed.
The excursions were all well organised and the guide (known locally as 'Smile') was very… Read Full Review

We traveled on the MS Terramar on 24th March 2010. The area and the guides were fantastic but illness spoiled the holiday. Our group of 10 had 3 people confined to their cabins for 2 days + due to stomach problems. Others were unwell, and have been treated since returning to the UK, including myself. Despite Thomas Cook assuring us that a medic was available on board no one ever appeared and the Doctor that finally attended had to be summoned from a local hospital. Hygiene seemed to be missing… Read Full Review

The Terramar is spacious and friendly. The housekeeping staff were excellent, towel art twice a day, room always spotless.
The food was also excellent, both in choice and quality but was let down by the often cracked or chipped crockery and glassware.
There does appear to be a little scam going if you are not "all inclusive" where you are charged the same price for a glass of a soft drink(which may be a very small wine glass) as for a bottle that gives you 2 glasses.
Also, as full board you… Read Full Review

Having read a lot of reviews about Nile cruises, were were attracted to the MS Terramar because it is one of the smaller Nile cruisers with only 20 cabins and 60 staff(!)We booked through One-Small-Step who then arranged Blue Sky Travel in Egypt to look after our trip.We were not disappointed. Travelling just as a couple we were met on arrival at Luxor airport by a Blue Sky rep. and shepherded to the boat. The decor is atmospheric fin de siecle. Cleanliness was outstanding. The cabin was large… Read Full Review

Booked via www.rivernilecruise.com
The MS Terramar is a charming, well kept Nile Cruise boat designed with an old fashioned feel and a dark wooden finish to the interior.
On arrival into Luxor we were met by a rep that explained the Visa process and requirements and helps us get it which saved us time and hassle avoiding standing in a long queue. We were then escorted personally to the Ms Terramar and guided through exactly what to expect and how the week was planned for us, including the… Read Full Review

tried to book terramar in jan 09 for late feb 09 thru thomas cook to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.
told that terramar was not available but semiramis was.
we did not want semiramis so asked when next available dates were for terramar. July and nov was answer. Didn't fancy july as too hot then, so plumped for mid nov which coincided with my wifes birthday.
One week before hol due to start, we got letter from thomas cook saying "due to excessive demand for the terramar" they were… Read Full Review

I have just come back from the best holiday ever. Everything about the MS Terramar was fantastic, the staff, the food, the cabins, the guide (Amir) and the excursions. There were only 8 of us in our group which was great, it made us feel good when we saw other tours from bigger boats with 30 to 40 people in a group.
Everyone got on brilliantly, haven't laughed so much in ages, especially on the Nubian night!
Please go to the Nubian Village to ride a camel, it was fantastic!
I will without a… Read Full Review

We have recently returned from a 7 day cruise on the MS Terramar and agree with all the positive remarks made about this holiday. It's amazing! Food,accomodation,service,excursions and our guide were all first class. The tour guide's knowledge is outstanding and I'm sure we all learnt something about ancient Egypt we didn't know thanks to him. I was even persuaded to take the balloon ride over the valley of the kings on our last day, what an amazing experience. On this holiday you will need… Read Full Review

We cruises the Nile on the MS Terramar from Oct. 29th to Oct 5th 2008. We had a great time thanks to our excellent guide. The weather was perfect, not to hot and not to cool. Mornings were cool but it warmed up quickly. By mid day the temperatures were in the mid 80's F.
The cabins were large with a sitting area with an LCD TV, a mini bar, table and chairs, and a couch which was not very comfortable. Adjacent to this was bedroom with a king size bed very firm but comfortable. Other than… Read Full Review

I did the MS Terramar cruise with my mom and older sister. I was the youngest on the boat but was treated as equally as the other passengers. Our tour guide was brilliant and could answer any questions we had. I think we were very lucky to have been put on board the Ms Terramar! There are 20 cabins on the boat and there were enough sun beds on the top deck for two each as there were only 15 of us on board. The excursions were amazing and I took over 500 photos! You even got the chance to do… Read Full Review

The MS Terramar was a fantastic boat to sail on and the excursions provided were fabulous (once you got over the 6 o'clock wake up times!). The staff were friendly, polite and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our guide was brilliant and funny, giving the right balance of information and free time to explore. The on board entertainment was limited but the traditional dancers/singers were good. The ball was entertaining and you do need to be prepared to take something with you or buy a… Read Full Review

General comments on the boat -
Extremely clean and well furnished - public areas

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… Read Full Review

From the minute we stepped onto the the Terramar we knew it would be something special. Our arrival was around 7.30pm and we were immediately shown into the dining room, whilst our bags were taken to our cabin.
General observations -
The cabin on the lower deck was spacious, clean, comfortable with two huge windows. Change of bed linen daily - towels twice daily - it makes a big difference. The bathroom was small but the shower was amazing - continuous hot water whatever the time of day.

The boat was very nice, clean and we had a huge cabin on the lower deck. The sun deck was really nice with 2 large undercover sitting areas and plenty of sundecks (undercover and in the sun). The food was plentiful and enough courses if you didn't like something. We could not fault the boat and standard at all and I think it was one of the best boats. It made it more peaceful with just 20 cabins and a smaller amount of people and this was definitely a plus when it came to the tours.
There were… Read Full Review
