5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
A wonderful nile cruise on a yacht
First impression made no big statement upon entering , but as we were given the key to our cabin it dorned on me that this was a special ship in deed and so it was. I was delighted with ,the Cabin was very large and elegant in an understated kind of way. The crue are all fantastic from the general manager that made sure that everything was perfect, to the cleaning staff that kept the cabin as well as the rest of the boat spotlessly clean .The food was superb .It's impossible to find anything negative to write. I highly recommend this cruise !

Great experience - impecable service, very good food, excellent excursions. It is a rather old but reasonably well kept boat (though some bits IMHO need replacing). The on-board tour guide (Hamed) experienced, well versed, but perhaps lacking enthusiasm. Also, his English pronunciation was hard to understand. the only disappointment is overpriced bar. But I guess when you book a cruise, you automatically subscribe for the price monopoly.

One of the best experience
This was one of the best cruises we ever did. The Crew was incredible, gentle, polite. The Nile was amazing. Amr was one of the best guides I ever encountered, Hamed knows everthing about egypt, Nassar was a great driver. Congratulations on everything and Thank you for a delightful experience.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Lots of lies
The hotel explanation says wifi is free, but they want to charge you 25 US dollars. The explanation says there is a business center, but actually there is no center. It says there is SPA, but it doesn't exist. It says it will provide free shuttle connecting the ship and an airport/hotel, but it didn't. I waited for a driver but he didn't show up. I finally took a taxi but failed to catch the plane, and I had to purchase another plane and waited for it for another five hours. The worst was the English-speaking guide, who spoke strong Egyptian accent strange language. There are so many ships on the Nile. I cannot believe why this picked up the worst one. (some ship crews and waiters were kind and friendly, though.)
