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.
