Egypt/Dubai Trip - looking for suggestions

Jump to last reply

Hi - my husband and I are considering celebrating my 30th birthday next March/April with a 10 day trip (maximum, unfortunately) combining sites in Egypt and possibly a few days in Dubai. My initial thinking is as follows:

2 nights in Cairo
4 night Nile Cruise on the Sanctuary or the Sun Boat IV (from Aswan to Luxor)
4 night relaxation/beach at either the Red Sea or Dubai

Hotels I am considering:
Cairo: Oberoi Mena House (like the view), Four Seasons
Red Sea: Four Seasons Sharm el Sheikh or Hyatt Regency - although I could use input on other cities, I only know of Sharm
Dubai: One and Only properties, Mina A'Salam (and sister properties), Ritz Carlton, Le Meridien

Any help that can be given regarding any part of the trip would be appreciated! I hope this is enough time for both a cultural/historical experience along with some down time (and if Red Sea, some snorkeling)

Thanks
