Nile cruising on MS Tulip

Jump to last reply

We're looking at several Egypt tour options for November -- yes, I'm an optimist that things will be calm then, and we're hoping to see Egypt while it's less crowded. We're looking at a Smithsonian tour that use the MS Tulip for its Nile cruise. Does anyone out there know anything about this ship?

Gather it was renovated in 2008 -- and with 70 cabins it's big enought that I assume we'd end up in the raft-ups at Luxor and Aswan. Any other information you have about it -- or about traveling with Smithsonian would be appreciated.

Smithsonian sends their study leader along, but otherwise the tour is run by an outside organization. They often use Odysseys (which we really like) but this one is run by Academic Tours Abroad. They sounded knowledgeable when I talked with them but I find little track record online for them.

Many thanks!
