Nile cruise tips

  • Tipping: Most of the Nile cruise operators set a standard for tipping to help the boat staff have a fair share of the tips money and passengers to show their gratitude in a nice way by putting the tipping money in an envelope and hand it to the boat receptionist which will be later added to other passenger's tips and distribute it to the staff according to the cruise ship company rules.
  • When you are off the boat for tours you will be handed a pass which will ensure your safe return. Make sure you don't lose it to avoid any trouble getting back to the ship.
  • As the weather in Egypt tends to be hot especially in upper Egypt in summer, wear light clothes and a hat  to make you feel comfortable and benefit from the sun without being affected by the sun and heat.
  • There is usually a shop on board the cruise boat but with limited options, so it will be better to take a shopping tour when you are off board and see what souvenirs shops offer before buying. You can also haggle the price to have a good deal.
