AmaWaterways Unveils 2021/2022 “Secrets Of Egypt & The Nile” E-Brochure
AmaWaterways has released its 2021/2022 Secrets of Egypt & The Nile e-brochure, which provides a comprehensive look at the 11-night river cruise and land adventure that guests can embark on beginning SEP 2021.
The itinerary, operating seasonally from SEP to MAY each year, sails on board the new 68-guest AmaDahlia, the 25th addition to the AmaWaterways fleet.
“River cruising is an excellent way to experience a destination, especially Egypt, where one of the oldest civilizations in the world began along the banks of the Nile River,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways.
With 17 departures planned for the 2021 season and 38 in 2022, The Secrets of Egypt & The Nile itinerary will take guests on a seven-night roundtrip cruise from Luxor. Accompanying the river cruise, guests will spend three nights pre-cruise and one-night post-cruise at the Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence.
A few highlights of the itinerary include:
A visit to the Egyptian Museum, home to a collection of pharaonic art and the treasures of Tutankhamen
A tour of the monuments at the UNESCO-designated ancient capital of Memphis, including the statue of Ramses II, Step Pyramid of King Zoser, the Great Pyramids and Sphinx of Giza
A visit to the Valley of the Kings and Queens, home to the mummified remains of more than 30 queens and princesses, including exclusive access to the tomb of Queen Nefertari
An exclusive visit to a Nubian village with lunch and a sunset sail in Aswan on a traditional Egyptian sailboat
For guests interested in extending their time in the region, the new e-brochure provides details on three optional land programs. This includes three pre-cruise nights in Dubai or four nights in Jordan (Amman and Petra) and post-cruise, four nights in Israel (Jerusalem).
