Egypt Itiniary- need help with transfers

hi everyone,
I've read quite a number of postings on trips to Egypt and have used all your valuable advice while planning the itiniary below. I need your suggestions on whether you feel that this is adequate. Please advice:
Day 1: Cairo
Arrive Cairo The Nile City and the capital of Egypt. Overnight.

Day 2: Cairo - Museum, Pyramids and Sphinx

Day 3: Cairo - Luxor - *Nile Cruise
Breakfast. Transfer to the airport for your flight to Luxor. Arrive and transfer to your Nile Cruiser. Visit the great temple of Karnak and Luxor. Dinner and overnight on board.

Day 4: Luxor - Esna - Edfu
This morning cross by ferry to the Niles West Bank for a visit to the Necropolis of Thebes. Visit the Valley of the Kings where over 60 Pharaohs had their palatial resting place hewn out of sheer rock, the Valley of Queens, the Temple of Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon. In the evening sail to Esna and the Temple of Khnum, past the famous lock to Edfu. All meals and overnight on board.
