Cruise the Nile in luxury on a Dahabiya Cruise Ship. Each of these ships have their own guide, they are smaller than the other cruise ships that ply the Nile and they go at a slower pace, giving you time to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Nile River. Itineraries are 7 nights and 8 days on board, all meals and sightseeing as listed in the itinerary. Cruises depart either Saturdays or Sundays from Aswan or Luxor, so you will need to plan your arrival in either departure city accordinaly. Please be advised that these ships require a minimum number of cabins to be booked before they will guarantee sailing.
