going price for 4 day Nile cruises


Is 400 US per person on a 4 day Nile cruise on a 5 star deluxe ship the going rate? This includes all site seeing tours and food but not drinks.

I am thinking of going on December 24th. Any recommendations for 4 star cruises and with whom can I contact for further info and prices.

Thank you.

I should think that $400 wouldn't be far from the mark, unless there is a surcharge for Christmas. But I would strongly advise against anyone from North America contemplating a 4* cruise boat. Unless you are really looking for something about which you can complain, instead of enjoying your holiday! lol.

Best wishes,

You may get cheaper with an Egyptian Travel Company but I think the price is ok for that standard and the inclusions. There are different standards even in the 5* category - 5*Standard, 5*Deluxe, 5*Super Deluxe etc.

Often when you see a cheaper price, it does not include entrance fees or guided tours so take that into consideration.

I agree with Edward, personally I would not go for anything less that 5* standard as imo that was okay but not what I would class as 5* more like a good 3*.

Agree with all above, at leats 5 star standard. The price is okay, but about the Obligatory Gala Dinner. Is it included in the price?, if yes, then the price is okay.
