Well I can start off with what a lovely...
"Well I can start off with what a lovely holiday it was the cruise ship was clean and tidy and the staff very friendly just one downfall they catered more for the Germans than us British
Now the holiday value for money excellent, could not fault it one bit from the moment we got to Manchester airport till we arrived back to Manchester airport. There is a lot to take in on the cruise and there a lot of early morning starts, like if you went on a balloon ride you had to up at 05:30 and if you went to Abu Simbel you had a call at 03:00 for the 04:30 flight.
If you go on this trip donât forget your coats because it is cold just before sunrise but overall the cruise was fantastic the cabin boys left you different things on your bed made from your towels i.e. elephants, crocodiles etc there really good.
The food is excellent but take a larger size trousers because the savories are to die for. The entertainment was ok but very loud. Our tour guide was Assam, he was very good and very thorough, he knows his stuff.
We met some lovely people on the cruise and after we got back from our excursions at 13:00 the rest of the day was our own. You just could not get over the sights while cruising. We are birdwatchers and we saw 45 different species just from the ship. All in all a very enjoyable trip one not to be missed."
