An unforgettable Egypt escape combining a five-star, all-inclusive beach resort with an adventurous River Nile cruise – includes travel and optional excursions

There’s no shortage of splendour on Egypt’s insanely famous Nile – the world’s longest river that stretches across a staggering 4,160 miles. As the true lifeblood of the country, traversing this mighty waterway is singularly the best way to get to grips with its revered monuments, iconic pyramids, striking temples, celebrated archaeological sites and ancient cities. So, it’s easy to see why this cruise-and-chill Egyptian adventure is perfect for those looking to combine cultural kicks with beach bliss.

You’ll take to the Nile’s mighty waters on MS Al Kahila – a five-star liner that wows with a great spa, outdoor pool and sundeck, lively bars and lounges, stylish dining, upscale accommodation and all-out comfort. Should you fancy adding on some eye-opening excursions, the cruise itinerary is nothing short of impressive too.

You’ll get the chance to visit the Valley of the Kings in the Theban Hills, kick back in the former frontier town of Aswan and admire the stunning temples at Luxor and Karnak. Equally thrilling is getting snap-happy at the Temples of Philae, High Dam and Colossi of Memnon, and wandering the temples at Abu Simbel that were famously dedicated to the Pharaoh Ramses and his beloved queen Nefertari.

Bookend your trip with a hefty dose of vitamin D and soak up some serious sunshine at the five-star Sonesta Pharaoh Beach Resort. As its name suggests, this palatial establishment will treat you like royalty from beginning to end. Two swimming pools, a splendid spa, tennis courts and top-notch cuisine will please even the most jaded of guests. For a true bucket-list experience, snorkel or dive in the glittering Red Sea, teeming with corals and colourful sea life.

Good to know

Please note that there is a compulsory tipping of £27 per person on the cruise, to be paid on arrival.

Please note that while you’ll spend a total of seven nights at Sonesta Pharaoh Beach Resort, Viking cruise departures are only on Fridays and Saturdays, so the number of nights you spend at the resort before and after your cruise may vary, depending on which day you arrive.

There's an option to upgrade your cruise package to include light excursions for £99 per person, which features Karnak Temple; Luxor Temple; Valley of The Kings; Hatshepsut Temple; and Colossi of Memnon, with English-speaking guides (this package does not include entrance fees).

MS Al Kahila, Nile Cruise (seven nights)

A dreamboat in more ways than one, MS Al Kahila is more akin to a floating hotel than a riverboat cruiser. This five-star, four-deck luxury craft will transport you at a leisurely pace up and down the River Nile, stopping off at important ports of call where you can explore the wonders of the Pharaohs and Ancient Egypt. On board you'll find a restaurant with panoramic views, a library, a welcoming lounge bar and a spa centre.

Sun yourself while the world floats by on the lounger-strewn sundeck, take a dip in the pool or keep active on the fitness machines. Dining is a delight, with a varied buffet laid on for each and every meal. Expect a large selection of international gourmet dining options, prepared by highly qualified professional chefs. Your elegant cabin comes with teak wood-panelling and sliding door windows with balcony rail, affording marvellous river views. Amenities include a private en-suite bathroom, flatscreen TV, mini-fridge and safe.

Sonesta Pharaoh Beach Resort, Hurghada (seven nights)


A creative blend of contemporary and Pharaoh-inspired architecture, Sonesta Pharaoh Beach Resort benefits from a prime beach location in the renowned Red Sea resort of Hurghada. Surrounded by rolling sand dunes and palm trees, backed by mountains, with the intensely clear blue waters of the Red Sea shimmering just a few minutes’ walk away, you can enjoy some of the world’s best snorkelling and diving over the coral reef just off the hotel’s private beach.

Expect five-star luxury amid all the natural splendour with a large free-form pool, heated indoor pool with hot tub and numerous sporting activities on hand, including beach volleyball, tennis and aqua gymnastics. Book a massage down on the beach or in the full-service spa (with sauna, steam room and gym). The light and airy main Karnak restaurant boasts pool views, serving buffet breakfast, lunch and nightly themed dinners featuring continental, international and Egyptian cuisine. You’ll stay in a spacious Sea View room, with a private balcony or patio, flatscreen TV and air conditioning.
