Discover Egypt is once again selling its ‘Ultimate Long Nile’ cruise with four itineraries following the FCO advice update last month, which has reopened access to the lower part of the River Nile. The travel update has spurred the operator to re-introduce the long Nile cruises, the 600-miles from Cairo to Aswan, with four itineraries.

Options include a nine-night, 11-night, 12-night and 14-night itinerary on the five-star Movenpick MS Hamees, one of the largest boats on the Nile, with the first departure on April 1, 2015. Passengers will get to experience some of Egypt’s top ancient sights including Luxor and the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens, Temples of Karnak and Luxor and the Pyramids and Sphinx. Each cruise includes guided excursions accompanied by an Egyptologist to some of the most well-known, as well as lesser known sights along the Nile.

As an example of prices, a nine-night cruise on May 1 starts in Luxor and finishes in Cairo and leads in at £1,899 per person. As well as the previously mentioned sights, the itinerary also takes in Qena and the unique L shaped Abydos Temple and the Pyramids of Maydom and Hawara in Fayoum.

All cruises are based on full board and include flights from Heathrow, transfers in resort and guided excursions.
