I travelled back from Luvor to the port in November last year. When the convoy of coaches were driving through the uninhabited parts it seemed to me like they were trying to take off! Same feeling as aeroplane going down the runway when you are thinking 'is it going to get off the ground before it crashes through the airport fence.

Hi Have been contemplating a nile cruise next year with excursions however having read the above 2 responses it seems to me that there may be serious risk to life and limb. Surely for these passengers who have stated the above it would be their moral duty to inform Thomson Head Office as I am sure everyone would be extremely interested in their 'official' response. Until then maybe I should cruise somewhere else less harmfu.

Having returned late Thursday night today is my first opportunity to write to Thomson and I will. Don't be put off as we did the 3 main attractions which were all fabulous as was the cruise. The only problem we had was the return journey from Luxor,when a convoy of coaches has to leave at 6pm beacause the police close off all the crossroads to let the buses through.It's a 4hr journey with all buses heading towards the port and Hurghada resort, some 30/40 coaches at least.The tour guides do not return with you on the bus and I guess the drivers revert to the awful, dangerous driving that is commonplace in Egypt. We had no such problems on the Petra trip or into Cairo.The last Red Sea Magic cruise this season is in the brochure as 6 Mar, so hopefully mine and other complaints will make Thomsons tackle this problem.If considering Egypt as a destination, you have to understand the issues within this area and accept that armed guards are everywhere. For our protection.

By Camilla Edwards

Well its very nearly Christmas and all I wish for now is some snow! Walking the dog this morning everywhere was frosty and white, made me really feel in the festive spirit.

Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

My final update on my recent trip on Independance of the seas is all about my dining experience.I can honestly say I was not disappointed with one meal I had.You can literally eat 24 hours a day. The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
