I am not going to say that your plan is impossible but it would take a great deal of organising and luck as ships visiting Egypt do not normally originate from the UK but start their cruising from a Mediterranean port. Secondly Nile cruising is normally done in the historically interesting areas of Luxor and Aswan the former being 500 miles from the coast or 400 miles from Cairo, Aswan is even further. So to find a ship going to the Red Sea would be best with a transfer to Luxor from there then you would need to be able to get a cruise ship back from the same place or Port Said or Alexandria at the end of your cruise. The best way to do this would be to take the first leg(s) of a world cruise in January and the last leg(s) of a world cruise to return. Exhausting to manage but as I said not impossible. I would attempt it. ....Neil.

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
