WHY WE RECOMMEND Egypt & Red Sea CRUISES
Egypt has a remarkable history which is hard to ignore, even if you are a cruiser with plenty of experience. The fact is, this intriguing country, and the Red Sea locations that surround it, are part of an unmissable world destination which has inspired generation after generation of travellers to return to their idyllic shores.
The historical treasures of this region can’t be overstated, with iconic sites like the pyramids of Giza and the magnificent Sphinx attracting hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. Alongside these remarkable attractions the region possesses a natural beauty which is utterly unforgettable – imagine beaches absent of throngs of tourists, with colourful coral reefs resting just offshore.
Of course, the historical edge of the region is still a brilliant reason to explore the array of ports on offer, from the ancient temples of Petra to the golden mask of King Tutankhamun that rests in the remarkable Egyptian Museum.
