The food was wonderful in all dining venues and tasted better than I had remembered. The evening entertainment was professional and entertaining, Day lectures were educational and worthwhile and included a travel professional who highlighted the upcoming tours with a visual presentation describing history and cultural advice and additional sights. On days at sea, two speakers entertained passengers, one on British spies during World War 1 and two
The other speaker told us his fascinating experience in Africa with camels. He actually rode by camel across the Gobi desert. Also on the British experience in Africa. The swimming pool was active with sun worshippers throughout the day as well as the hot tubs. Underwater exercises took place at 2 pm followed by water volleyball at 3.

wIth the same bedskirt and drapery 10 years ago which was not objectionable to us since we
have the same drapery and bedskirt in our bedroom at home. All the amenities were the same. Designer soaps and shampoos, stationary imprinted with our name, two bathroom sinks, a safe, a stocked refrigerator with our favorite beverages, a wonderful butler and an efficient cabin maid. The only minor problem was that the shower door leaked. The bathroom also had a bathtub. Also the cabin had binoculars, aTV, free movies and a phone to contact other passengers or our butler, Adrian.

Before lunch we visited the Luxor Temple which is awesome because of the enormous columns, huge statues and carvings into the stone. Lunch was served at an upscale hotel overlooking the Nile River. After lunch,we crossed the Nile into the Valley of the Kings and visited 3 tombs. We returned to another hotel for high tea before returning to the ship,View All 14 Valley of the Kings Reviews
