I have seen some very reasonably priced cruises on Mirage with Viator.com. Has anyone been on these cruises and comment please. We are adventurous 60/70 trying to plan this from Australia.
We like our comfort but can not afford the prices of the Sonesta at 2192US for 4 nights. From what I can see there seem to be cruises at this rate and then others at about $1000AU and nothing in between.
Any other very comfortable cruises with good food recommendations very welcome.
We are very flexible which direction we take but would prefer a 5night cruise if possible and not a 3 night cruise.
I dont want to book an actual tour, as we will probably stay in Cairo for a few days, maybe Aswan for 1 0r 2 and Luxor for a few days to explore. We enjoy slow travel and exploring on our own, so dont want to be organised from morning to night as we would be if we booked an 8/10 day tour.
The travel agents in Australia can only book 8/10day tour including air fares, and were actually dumbfounded when I asked about just booking the cruise package. We will be on a extended trip from Turkey, Crete, Cyprus etc.
