Nile cruise: MS Sonesta St George or MS Nile Adventurer

Jump to last reply

We (husband and I) are going to spend 3 months travelling around the Middle East. Our first stop is Egypt, and one of the things we really want to do is a Nile cruise.

I have looked at many, however, our first pick, the MS Oberoi Philae is going to be refurbished and therefore will not be sailing for 18 months. That leaves us with the MS Sonesta St George or MS Nile Adventurer (Sanctuary Retreats).

They are both rated as 5 stars, they both do the same itinerary and excursions and cost more or less the same. So it all comes down to which boat is prettier and/or has a better service.

We don't know which one to pick. Please help!
