We did this cruise and did the three main excursions. Approx. £70 each but worth every penny. Valley of the Kings and Karnak were amazing, and Petra was a lot of walking but worth seeing. If you can manage it go all the way! The price includes entry fees and lunches at five star hotels. Really good food and tons of it with wine.

Last year it was £70 each. It's a long day but if you have not done Nile Cruise then it's the best way to see valley of the kings and Karnak.Problem you get back to the boat late you are greeted by the crew on the dock with drinks towles and entertainment but you still have to pack to have your cases out in time so if you can pack at least one case it will be a help when you get back. Tip! book your trips as soon as you get on board!! you should then be on the first coaches.You not only get ther earlier you have longer there. Dont wait for the port show case.Lovely cruise but all docks are industrial. ENJOY.

Just back from my wonderful ‘home’ Mallorca even though I am not from Mallorca (not with a surname like mine anyway!)

Heading to the Caribbean?

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

With major hurricanes bartering through the United Stated and the Caribbean over the last couple of months I have received a huge amount of calls from obviously concerned passengers as to whether their cruise will still be happening, and if so will the itinerary still be the same.Having worked in the Caribbean for a couple of years with Thomson I have been in the middle of a couple of Hurricanes and dealt with the aftermath too from evacuating Islands, to holding the fort in hurricane shelter...
