I have just seen the reports that the Cairo to Luxor cruises are going to be re-started after a gap of 17 years.

At the moment I have no plans to take anymore cruises but this one might just tempt me.

Does this mean that the security situation in Middle Egypt has improved or are things getting so desperate that the cruise lines are grasping at anything to get revenue?

In any case I'm not planning another trip to Egypt until 2014, plenty of time to see how things turn out. Smile

Indeed the Cairo - Luxor cruises have already restarted. The first one (Abercrobie) arrived in Luxor last Sunday but had only taken 3 days to come from Cairo so might have been a VIP opening cruise as it did not have many people aboard.

Where did you find this piece of information? I've googled it but I can't find anything on the topic.
This would be a great idea for our 25th wedding anniversary next year! My husband and I are both huge fans of Egypt, its history and culture.

As I mentioned earlier, Abercrombie and Kent are running a 10 night Cairo to Aswan cruise
Info here: http://www.abercrombiekent.co.uk/egypt/

I have no connection with any travel company, just information I have learned from others and a web search. Good luck and I hope you enjoy your 25th anniversary whatever you choose. Hekat and I are having our 40th anniversary later this year.
