Nile River Cruise

Jump to last reply

2 married couples are planning an 8 day/7 night Nile River cruise, departing from Luxor and returning back there. I have reviewed the posts on the forums, but still have some questions. Would some of you good Fodorite Nile cruise veterans be kind enough to help with the issues noted below relating to visiting the cities/towns along the river?

1. With 3 meals a day provided onboard the boat, how many times should we plan to eat off the boat? The names of any cafes, restaurants and/or other local establishments you wish to recommend will certainly be appreciated.
2. We like to try the local food, see the local color and always like to go where the locals go, but is that something you do in Egypt, and especially along the river where we will be cruising? If so, all suggestions are welcome.
3. Even though we are in our 60s and don't stay out all night dancing, we enjoy watching the people and asorbing the local culture where ever we travel, and historically we have enjoyed doing this after touring during the day. Other than visiting the temples, sites, dams, etc., is there much happening in Luxor, Aswan, Edfu or anywhere else along our route after the tours are done or at night for us to see, or is it best just to go back to the boat and relax? Comments on what you did and enjoyed will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any responses!!!
