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: 09/02/2007 by Tutmore (1 review written)

Allow extra money for tipping, which is unavoidable. Not that you would want to avoid tipping because the service is amazing.
I was unwell during the trip, although the standard of cleanliness was very high, and a doctor came onto the boat within 15 minutes of asking for one. The medical attention was good and not overly expensive. The doctor returned twice more for follow up visits, spoke excellent English and was professional and kind, better than in the UK!
Balloon flight excursion had 32… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/09/2006 by thescottishone (1 review written)

Excellent value for money. I found it to be very clean, and I can't understand the comments about it being unclean. The drinks were priced the same as in a bar in the UK. What you would expect on a cruise ship. As for the staff, I found them very pleasant, and they always had a laugh and joke with us, and you got free crisps at the bar! The guide was excellent, and he was very knowledgeable, and yes he did always joke about it being a mans country, but seriously that's what Egypt is, and we all… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/05/2006 by tinas (1 review written)

I would really recommend the MS Emilio Nile cruise. Wonderful service, weather, and sights. Our only wish was that we had booked Cairo as an add on. Reading up on the sights or watching a DVD before going would add to the experience, as it would give you a better understanding of the sights… Read Full Review

Hi
<br/>We&#039;re going in a party of 7 on the Domina Prestige next week. I was wondering if anyone had advice about whether to take sterling of egyptian pounds to pay for drinks excursions etc I&#039;m a bit worried about the drinks bill for 7 at the end of the holiday too. Any advice on costs of water and soft drinks. Thanks, Sue.

Hi sue
<br/>You can use either egyptian pounds or english pounds on board the domina but we took just enough egyptian pounds to pay for souvenirs and we paid for drinks, excursions with english money. I do not think that they accept travellers cheques on board.
<br/>Bottles of Water costs around 5 egyptian pounds for a 500ml bottle but you can get it cheaper off the boat. You will have to sign for drinks each time you have one but you are able to ask for a nightly tally if you want to keep track.

Written on: 25/02/2006 by David Wayman (1 review written)

MS Emilio is so good you have to look hard for faults, (why bother just enjoy) our Guide Mohammed was great.
No entertainment on deck, should have been some, odd considering weather etc, only family on board with teenagers, not much for them, food bit fussy but being very pretty got better service than we did!!!
Take something you can give the guys who clean the rooms, (old football shirts etc) will ensure wonderful service.
This is a wonderful holiday, very tiring, early mornings & lots of… Read Full Review
