Get a front-row peek at Cairo’s spectacular skyline in an unforgettable cruise on one of the world’s most famous bodies of water.

After a front-door pickup from your Cairo hotel, board your riverboat at the dock and feel the rhythm of the water as the captain cruises into the Nile’s current. Get ready to take a ride on the river that has inspired countless poems, artwork, and songs throughout the centuries.

While Arabic music plays, belly dancers perform a predinner show, giving you a taste of traditional moves. Then, it’s time to hit the buffet: hot and cold dishes, including meats, salads, rice, and a tasty dessert spread.

During the next performance, whirling dervishes, known as Tanoura dancers, hit the stage to Sufi music, showcasing traditional Egyptian religious devotion. You’ll have time to head to the deck for a remarkable perspective on Egypt’s bustling capital city before returning to the shore.
