The Nile enabled Egypt’s ancient civilisation and agriculture
to prosper and the ultimate way to witness this land of
pharaohs and ancient treasures along the riverbanks is on
board a luxurious five-star cruise with Mövenpick. Sailing
between Luxor and Aswan, a well-crafted land itinerary
includes highlights such as Valley of the Kings and Queens
on the West Bank, the Kom Ombo Temple, the unfinished
Obelisk, the Edfu Temple and Karnak and Luxor Temples on
the East Bank, all in just seven days.
Experience the Pharaonic spirit that inspired Mövenpick
to also create an innovative extended cruise programme,
showcasing the glorious history of Egypt sailing 680km
between Cairo and Aswan on board SS Misr or MS Darakum.
The excitement and anticipation of this journey begins in
Cairo with shore visits to the ancient pyramids and the
Sphinx as well as the Egyptian Museum and Coptic Cairo
encompassing the Hanging Church, Coptic Museum and the
Jewish synagogue. This extended itinerary enables curious
travellers to discover unique and inaccessible historic gems
such as Amarna, some 300km south of Cairo and home to
heretic pharaoh Akhenaten and his beloved wife Nefertiti.
The four tombs of Beni Hassan, Prince Tawdrous Monastery
and the holy city of Osiris, God of the Dead are all part of this
literally monumental journey.
