My husband and I are researching a Nile cruise, hopefully later this year. So far really, we have yet to find a post which gives us confidence to book any! There seem to be so many posts which report unclean boats, poor hygiene and people being ill on so many! All of a sudden I found an encouraging post for the Royal Viking 5-star boat which, initially, had one or two replies which would have led me to book - until I also came across replies indicating that one never seems to know WHICH boat you would be booking; also that many people complain about the diesel fumes when queuing up waiting to get into a place. We are both very put off now, which is very disappointing, because we were hoping to go.
I would very much welcome some honest and encouraging replies to help us change our minds back again, in particular anyone who has been this past year on the Royal Viking.
