The ancient wonders of Egypt come into view full on Scenic’s newest trip – an 11-day adventure that combines a five-day Nile sailing with six days exploring many of the incredible sights of this historically and culturally rich region. Whether wandering among the 4,500-year-old pyramids and taking in the evening laser light show, or relaxing on the sun deck of Scenic’s exclusive private charter of the recently refurbished Sanctuary Sun Boat III, guests on Scenic’s Treasures of Egypt will go home with a deep understanding and appreciation of one of the world’s oldest cultures.
Journeying round trip from Cairo with the cruise running between Luxor and Aswan, guests tour the open-air temple complex of Karnak, take in the priceless antiquities in Cairo’s Egyptian Museum, the pyramids and Sphynx, learn about the pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings, visit a Numbian village – one of the world’s oldest civilizations, and be wowed by the enormity of the World Heritage temples of Ramses II and his wife Neferati.
Guests follow the path of the Pharaohs as the ship sails past numerous villages and ancient temples that hug the shores of the Nile. On board, guests are entertained by a belly dancer and whirling dervishes, and partake in a lively Galabeyya party, complete with appropriate costumes and Egyptian delicacies and music.
