The cruise was really great, we had a great time. The temples are extraordinary and the hot air balloon ride breathtaking. Everything was very well organized, we had private French guides almost every time it was royal. The boat's room is good, with air conditioning and private bathroom. The restaurant is super good (buffet), with vegetarian options. There is a swimming pool on the roof of the boat. Only negative point: you have to pay 20€ by phone to have Wifi (and the wifi is only available at the reception) I recommend 100%!

It was really good value for money. The cruise ship we were on was the Crown Jubilee and was really good! The actual Nile cruise was amazing! There was a little miscommunication and late communication from the travel agent on the activities eg visiting temples, which was a little disappointing. And plans often change, which is hard when your expecting it to go via your itinerary. But all in all, good value for money.
