 If you want a lavish luxury experience we recommend on of our Luxury Cruises on Blue Danube


During the daytime, while enjoying the tours, wear lightweight clothes, due to the extreme heat. It is recomended that you cover your shoulders and that shorts or skirts come down to the knees. This shows respect for the local customs and protects from you from the blistering Egyptian the sun. The same rules apply in European places of worship. While relaxing on board it is much less formal in shorts, t-shirts and swimming costumes, if you wish. Breakfast and lunch can be taken dressed like this, but for dinner, smarter clothes are the norm. 


All extras such as bar tabs, laundry, and spa visits, should be settled on the last day of your cruise at checkout time. Payment can be made with credit card or cash. We recommend visiting a bank, to change your money, before cruising, as most of the cruise boats do not offer this facility.


Can be in dollars, euro or Egyptian pounds. Use notes as coins are useless. Fold the tip in the palm of your hand. Quietly pass it in a handshake while expressing your thanks. Some Egyptians consider it good manners to quietly decline the tip once or twice. So it is considered good manners on your part to insist.

  • Tour Manager/Tour Leader $5 per day

  • Tour Guide $5 per day

  • Bus/Taxi Drivers for tours $2 per day

  • Hotel Housekeeping $2 per day

  • Restaurant Waiter  $3 per day

End of Cruise or Hotel Stay:

  • Most ships have a tip box in reception.

  • It is customary to tip a minimum of $5 per day, per guest. This is divided among all crew except the managers

  • If the cleaner or waiter was very good, an extra tip of $5 on departure day is always appreciated

  • If a receptionist or manager  has been especially helpful you can tip $10 on departure day

  • If you liked the food, compliment the Chef and $10 is appropriate

Check In/ Check Out Times

Visa Entry Into Egypt

A foreign citizen who wishes to enter The Arab Republic of Egypt, must obtain a Visa. This can be done upon arrival or via an e-Visa. The E-Visa application must filed at least 7 days prior to arrival: E VISA

You will need a passport that is valid for six months at the end of your visit.


For practical reasons, the cruise may be subject to cruise sequence alterations. Sometimes the ship will be moored alongside two or three other vessels. Most sailing is done during the day, but some sailing may be required after dark.

At busy periods the boat may be required to wait for a short time to get through the lock on the Nile at Esna.
