The temp was between 52 and 57, to hot to sunbathe. Of the 600 odd vessels on the Nile only around 60 odd are running due to the lack of tourists. Of the ships not running the engines are running to power the bilge pumps and these are 4 abreast pumping out diesel fumes, a permanent haze! If you go ashore you are pestered to buy this or that, ride a taxi or buggy and they will not take no for an answer. We got off the vessel in one instance and returned within 5 minutes, just could not take the pressure. We have cruised the red sea a couple of times with out a problem. Will we return? no! even if Luxor manages to survive. Tipping, is ridiculous, they want money for smiling. We were due to board the Nile Explorer, but due to lack of people we made up the numbers on the Legacy.
