I have just returned from a brilliant nile crusie taken on the Sherry Boat and want to share the amazing experience.
This boat may not be the newest but it certainly must be the one of the best.
I booked this cruise on a budget as the deal seemed extremely good and then worried. It had one of the best itineraries offering far more in terms of sight seeing trips than many other boats but was nearly half the price.
i need not have worried. This boat is spotlessley clean, the rooms are large and nicely decorated, not ultra modern but clean, tidy and cozy. The 2 sun decks give you great views as you saunter down the Nile and one has a lovely little plunge pool and jacuzzi which is cleaned and checked rergularly. There is plenty of comfortable seating and comfy sunbeds on both decks. A lovely bar is on the same level as the sun decks offering entertainment and a good selection of very reasonably priced drinks (another good reason for choosing the Sherry Boat).
The food was superb and plentiful.
We had a very knowledgeable guide called Milad who just couldn't do enough for us. Very sociable, excellent English and very funny...it would be worth requesting him if thats possible. All trips were in small groups and so were very personal. But what I liked most about the Sherry Boat was the cozy atmosphere and the extremely friendly, polite and hardworkling staff. Its not the biggest boat on the Nile and this is the advantage. We had all the amenities and comforts without bthe crowds which meant that we got real personal service. I will be visitng the Sherry Boat again as it was just so relaxing and enjoyable and we felt very well taken care of. Excellent value!
