Being on board a river cruise is a very different experience to the much larger ocean liners. The Nile cruise boats are much smaller with 55-70 cabins, offering a much more intimate and relaxed environment. There is no formal dressing for dinner (just smart casual), no ‘captain’s table’ and the evening entertainment is light hearted and not compulsory!
There are many boats that cruise the Nile so how do you go about choosing one? We thoroughly recommend that you read reviews on websites, such as our own “Nile Cruise Reviews” page or look at review sites such as Trip Advisor, Holiday Watchdog and the Review Centre. All the boats that we feature have links to these sites to enable you to see comments and reviews.
Talk to us! Orbital Travel are the Nile cruise specialists, we have been dealing with boats and boat owners on the Nile for over 15 years. We choose only the best 5* boats in their category which represent great value for money. All of our boats are inspected regularly to ensure that they meet our very high standard. The star ratings used for the boats are awarded by the Egyptian Hotel Guide in Cairo, we are able to advise the differences between the boats even within their category.
Within the site are details of some of the boats we offer which are available to the UK exclusively through Orbital Travel and we are able to offer middle/upper deck cabins as standard (no supplement applies).
