Nile Cruise and Stay holidays combine the thrill of a week's Nile cruise through the heart of ancient Egypt, with the relaxation of a traditional beach resort holiday by the Red Sea.
Our Nile Cruise and Stay holidays comprise 7 nights on board ship plus 7 nights at your chosen hotel. Nights spent at the hotel will take place at either end of your cruise, with the breakdown of days dependent on which day you arrive in Egypt; this varies by time of year and which UK airport you fly from.
All our cruises begin on a Monday, so, for example, if you fly into Hurghada from Manchester on a Friday you will spend 3 nights in resort, before transferring to Luxor on the Monday to join the cruise. On conclusion of the cruise the following Monday, you will be transferred back to your resort the remaining 4 nights of your stay.
Example of a 5* Itinerary. There are many other options available depending on customer requirements and budget.

Elegant and sophisticated, this is one of the most beautiful ships sailing the Nile today. The MS Grand Rose is the height of understated luxury, offering panoramic views from the sun deck; exceptional international cuisine at the Jasmin restaurant; and the opportunity to relax and enjoy a cocktail in the Tulip bar as the sun sinks beneath the horizon – the perfect location for that special occasion.
Popular with an international clientele, it is ideal for couples and singles of all ages. Whether you want to explore the sites or simply wile away the hours to the sound of water lapping gently against the bow, you will enjoy first class service from the experienced and attentive crew.
The five decks of the Grand Rose are home to 60 exterior cabins and 2 suites, all with panoramic windows. Tastefully furnished, they offer two single or double sized beds, a cosy lounge area, bath with shower, WC, air conditioning, hairdryer, satellite TV and safe. Use of the telephone and mini-bar in room is payable locally.
Cabin pricing is based on lower deck cabins. Middle and upper deck cabins feature larger windows and are available for a small supplement, as are the two suites. Please ask for details.
