RA 11 at the end of this month

We are booked on the RA11 at the end of this month and beginning to wonder if this is a mistake! We booked in April and got a very good price for the trip. Having not seen any recent comments about this boat, we are even wondering if it still exists!

Reading about the tummy bugs some people have experienced and that Antinal is the thing to take - but that you can only get it in Egypt, will we be able to get it at the airport or anywhere before we got on the boat?

Any comments or advice, greatly appreciated

Thanks for your encouraging words.

I am not too worried about tummy problems, but always feel better to be prepared. I have been to the red sea a few times and in fact 2 years ago did a trip to Luxor from Hurghada overnight which we thoroughly enjoyed. This is what made me determined to 'do' the Nile cruise before I am really past travelling long distances. Have not found anywhere yet that tells us the price of excursions. I imagine flights to Abu Simbel will be expensive?

Thanks again

Hi,

The RA II is one of the few Nile Cruise boats that has sailed almost continuously since the revolution in January 2011.

Im not sure why no one has posted any reviews but if you want to pm me I can send you some reviews from clients I have recently had on the boat or I can get the boat to send me some.

For the money with its extra sailing excursion to Dendera and the private mooring, the RA II is very good value for money, especially as you say you got a good price for it.

Thanks,

>>>>> Im not sure why no one has posted any reviews <<<<<<<<

Currently TA has no facility to review a cruise in the same way hotels etc can be reviewed. I've been directed to "Cruise Critic" by TA.

Otherwise Nile cruises are usually reviewed in the threads, eg:

tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g294205-i9426-k4…

tripadvisor.co.uk/…25595634
