The Nile River: Lifeline to Egypt

When the Nile floods, deposits of silt from the riverbed intermix with the surrounding soil. This simple phenomenon allowed the early Egyptians to cultivate wheat and flax, which in turn sustained one of the world’s oldest civilizations. Even today, large populations of Egyptians live in the great and ancient cities along the river: Luxor, Edfu, Aswan, and Kom Ombo, each built around stunning temple complexes. Beyond Boundaries Travel allows you to traverse the Nile and visit these historical cities on this eight-day, seven-night cruise.

Cruises take place aboard one of four five-star ships. The boats feature about 70 cabins with private bathrooms and air conditioning as well as a restaurant, a swimming pool, and a disco. Some vessels add a little variety to the mix: the M/S Magic I recently installed a wine and cheese bar, and its fraternal twin, the M/S Magic II, boasts a sushi bar.

After you arrive in Egypt, the boat departs from Luxor and journeys south against the current, docking for a day or two in three additional cities: Edfu, Aswan, and Kom Ombo. At each stop, you can explore on your own or go on an optional excursion for an additional fee. Side trips range from a guided tour through the Valley of the Kings in Luxor—which contains 63 tombs of pharaohs and nobles—to a leisurely camel ride in Aswan. Alternatively, you can set out with nothing but a guidebook and your wits or simply hang back on the ship and work on your tan while practicing lines for the next Mummy sequel. On day 7, the ship reverses course for Luxor and lands back where it all started on day 8.
