People going from a cruise to an Egyptian sight or place do not, generally have any injections or the like. We recently went to Alexandria for a day, drank local bottled water and ate in a local restaurant which was extremely busy, not another westerner in there and ate all sorts of local food without any ill-effect at all. It was delicious. Egypt is not the cleanest country you will visit but do not be paranoid about being there because it takes the edge off all it can offer. ..... Neil.

Me too! We were in Alexandria & did the Pyramids in Giza & never were aware of anyone having injections. We went in a 'local' restaurant in Giza & ate with the locals to no ill effects, that was 5 of us including a 10 year old. I'm with Neil, there seems little point in visiting these places without a sense of adventure.

How Far Is Too Far?

By Alison Ranaldi

In March last year, I booked my holiday for November this year. At the time, booking 20 months in advance seemed quite strange and hard to get excited about. On the plus side, the cost of my cruise increased by over 700 per person over the following months and it has given us lots of time to plan what we are doing and to budget the holiday by booking trips, hotels and flights at different times rather than in one go. Also, it is nice to have something to look forward to. I have had a few holi...

What has been happening over the last couple of weeks in the Cruise Industry ?There has been a lot of talk about the new Cruise ship Bliss belonging to Norwegian cruise line. I never thought there would be a day that a ship would have a race track on board . I am led to believe the track itself will be the longest at sea at nearly 1,000 feet, with four speed settings accommodating all drivers with the speed reaching up to 30 miles per hour including a special turbo boost available on each l...

Truth Behind Your Cruise Itinerary

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

Experienced cruisers will already know by looking at an itinerary how far the ports are from the main city and towns. However those that are new to cruising may be a bit miffed when booking a cruise that visits Paris or Rome they are in fact in some cases two hours away. With Paris being the capital of France you know the only water that surrounds it is the Seine. I think the most shocking one that appears is Berlin, people are thinking this will be lovely to visit but in reality it is just ...
