Explore the Nile with Grand Cruises
The River Nile has been the heart of Egypt for more than 5,000 years. The banks of the Nile are lined with magnificent monuments that bear witness to the power of the pharaonic dynasties and the later influence of the Ptolemys, Romans and Turks. A Nile cruise is the perfect way to experience this archaeological treasure trove, as you soak in the sights, sounds and traditions of some of Egypt’s most iconic locations.
Grand Cruises is the Red Sea Hotels group’s own Nile cruise specialist. Their fleet of modern, custom-built Nile cruise ships are "floating hotels" that offer every amenity for a relaxing holiday as you embark on a voyage through history. There’s no better way to experience the wonders of this ancient land.
Breathtaking sights, sounds and culture, combined with the ultimate in luxury accommodation and service, is the Grand Cruises hallmark.
Every cruise includes a comprehensive tour itinerary with daily excursions led by our enthusiastic and knowledgeable team of Egyptologists. Departing from Luxor, the cruise follows a route to Aswan via the Esna lock, with stops at Edfu and Kom Ombo.
