We are off on this cruise this coming weekend. We have done Cairo before and have also done Alexandria before when we did a trip to El Alamein which was very interesting. We visited the War Graves and also the Museum fairly close by which explained the history of the War battles in that area. It was of special interest to me as both my parents served with the British Army there during the war.....but I found it very interesting and the drive there was quite pleasant following the coastline along.
We shall probably just stay in Alexandria itself this time...We have booked a trip in Malta to Mdina, Mosta and the Handicrafts village as we are only there for four hours and we thought it was a bit tight timewise to do on our own.... although it would be possible. Everywhere else we intend to do our own thing.
