“A disappointing trip”

Written on: 21/03/2018 by Bengemma (1 review written)

The ship was very clean; the crew very helpful, attentive and polite. BUT the food, while abundant and well-cooked, was very bland and repetitive. We had to bribe the chef to give us a taste of Egyptian food! Also, the ship did not dock at Luxor on the outward leg (they blamed low water) but in a filthy village 20 miles away. The beer was ok, but avoid local spirits (whisky etc) as they taste horrible… Read Full Review

“MS Emilio, March 2015”

Written on: 22/03/2015 by boomer99 (1 review written)

Just returned from a Nile cruise on the MS Emilio which can only be described as being well below expectation. Never the 5 star cruise, more like 3 star at best. We joined the Emilio on the 8th March and were immediately greeted by the tour reps who appeared to have only one thing on their minds - how much money can be extracted out of these customers!! In the first breath of the welcome meeting we were told that we should pay £27 per person up front to cover tips for the crew. Several on… Read Full Review

“CRUISE FROM HELL !”

Written on: 20/02/2015 by Catlover9cleo (1 review written)

First big hassle at the airport where they would not take the US$25 dollars receipted on the passport and we paid about double that in English pounds. We queried this with the rep and he said that they need "agents" to help with the influx of people and each need a percentage of the Visa charges??? Next was a fabulous 5-star hotel in Hurghada called the Old Palace where we stayed for 2 nights prior to setting off for the cruise which commenced in Luxor! So we travelled on a cheap tinny sort… Read Full Review

“3 star at best”

Written on: 25/11/2014 by tobythetyke (1 review written)

We have just returned from a 7 nights cruise on MS Emilio and a 4 night stay in the Old Palace Resort in Hurghada which was booked through Travel Interaction the agents in Egypt was You Travel which came under the umbrella of Meeting Point. We started our holiday with a 3 night stay at the Old Palace. The hotel was lovely a truly 5 star Hotel. We got picked up by Meeting Point for the Journey to Luxor to the boat at 1 pm we had been told that it was a 3-4 hour journey. We in fact arrived at… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/03/2011 by bhunt1910 (1 review written)

We booked this originally to travel in February on MS Stephanie - but were cancelled because of Egyption Revolution and rebooked for March and upgraded to MS Emilio. This was a special occassion for my wifes 60th Birthday. Our original disappointment was overcome with all of our expectations being surpassed. The boat was excellent - there were 80 crew and only 40 or so passengers - which was brilliant as you got to know most of them and what a good bunch they were. The food was excellent - I… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2011

Our ship was the Emilio Domino Prestige and we were very happy with the standard of care and attention given by all the Staff. Two who stood out were Waleed, our guide who is one of the most kind and considerate men you could wish to meet and Mr Isaacs the rep from Orbital travel who was always there when we needed him right up to our final departure. Waleed loved his country and his subject and and his enthusiasm and laugh were infectious. We would certainly recommend this ship… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/12/2010 by travelling walkers (1 review written)

Very clean ship inside and out making others look shabby. Very friendly and helpful staff always wanting to please. Exceptionally quiet and smooth on the water. Very comfortable king size bed. All Inclusive deal proved excellent value for money resulting in no extra spending. Tour guide Alla extremely knowledgable on Egyptian history and good sense of humour added to a first rate experience. Our booking + tickets through Co-op travel on line proved a little confusing as it wasn't clear who was… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/11/2010 by The McCarthy Family (1 review written)

The staff are incredible. The boat is very nice and the pool is the best. Saw many other boats on the Nile and was shocked at the condition of many of the boats. MS Emilio is a lovely boat, decent food, entertainment. Best things were definitely ALL the staff and ALI BABA our amazing tour guide who also became an incredible friend… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/11/2010

I had a great time onboard with my sister. The boat was very nice and clean. The staff was ever so nice, always trying to keep you happy and do anything to make sure we had a good time. The food was excelent and constantly checked by the kitchen staff. All staff and guest where made to sanitize their hands before entering the dining room . The only thing i didn't like was the size of the pool and the deserts, but than I didn't had a single nice sweet in Egypt… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/07/2010

On arrival we were told we were not going to the boat originally given but being upgraded? to the Emilio. The boat initially looked dated but once on board it was a really nice boat. The staff were pleasent and helpful. The rooms were cleaned twice a day and cleaned well (towels turned into animal by the staff each day, lovely touch). Our Guide, who was an ex school teacher, was very knowlegable and presented the tours in order and explained with great detail and understanding the life and… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/11/2009

We have just returned from the cruise, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The cruise was fabulous, cabin very clean, food good. We had an excellent guide Azza who made it all worthwhile, she was so passionate about her job, so knowledgeable and a great sense of humour. We were disappointed when she was not our guide to Abu Simbel, we realised what an excellent guide she was.
Anyone who is thinking of going on a cruise to Egypt, we would definitely recommend this one… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/02/2009

Overall a great holiday on MS Emilio. Very apprenhensive before going, but need not have worried. Food and staff were excellent. When restaurant staff told I was vegetarian, they came up with even more choices. Rooms were cleaned to a good standard. Price of drinks were expensive. Just wish something could be done about the hassle when getting off the boat. Surely the locals should realise we would buy more if allowed to look first… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/04/2008 by Anntone01 (1 review written)

We were transferred to MS Emilio owing to overbooking (which can happen at high season) and found it to be one of the most enjoyable experiences we have had. We had never been to Egypt before although this was not the first time to an Arabic country - we were very miffed at first at not being on the boat we had booked but the staff especially made us feel very welcome. A good tip here is do not go with the big operators-book independently on-line. We were met at the airport by the agent from… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/08/2007 by brownsea (1 review written)

After a late arrival at 23:00 we were made to feel welcome and a hot meal was provided.

On our cruise the passenger mix was predominantly Italian/British (50/50) with the average age being 35(ish).

We had a suite that was well worth paying for, it being twice the size of a normal cabin. It was generally clean and the towels changed at least twice a day. The cabin steward proved to be friendly and entertaining with his towel sculptures! Note that the boat often moors alongside other boats and… Read Full Review
