Movenpick Prince Abbas Lake Cruise Itinerary

Day 1: Embarkation - Visit Abu Simbel Upon your arrival in Abu Simbel, a representative from Travel Joy Egypt will collect you from your hotel or the Abu Simbel airport and transfer you to the Movenpick Prince Abbas Lake Cruise for check-in at 1:00 PM. Lunch will be served onboard the cruise. Next, you will visit the Abu Simbel Temples. Located on the west bank of the Nile between the first and second cataracts, Abu Simbel is one of Egypt's most iconic ancient sites. It features two temples carved into the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II from 1303-1213 BC. In the 1960s, the temples were dismantled and relocated to higher ground due to the construction of the Aswan High Dam, which flooded their original location. After your awe-inspiring tour of the temples, you will relax with afternoon tea and refreshments onboard the cruise. Dinner will also be served onboard, where you will spend the night. Optional in the evening is a fascinating Sound and Light Show held at the Abu Simbel Temples. Through enchanting music and projections that illustrate how the temples originally appeared, the show transports visitors back in time to the era of the pharaohs. Narrated in multiple languages through individual audio receivers, witnessing this show is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will forever remain in your memory. Meals Included: Lunch Dinner Optional Visit to Sound And Light Show at Abu Simbel

Travel Joy Egypt guests will enjoy breakfast onboard the Movenpick Prince Abbas Lake Cruise. An early morning sail will take them to Kasr Ibrim for scenic views from the sundeck. Once a formidable city situated high above the Nile River, Kasr Ibrim now appears as an island due to the construction of the Aswan High Dam. Lunch will be served onboard the cruise. Later, guests will join their guide for a visit to the Amada Temple. Originally built by Pharaoh Thutmose III of the 18th dynasty, the temple underwent additions and decorations during the reigns of his son Amenhotep II and successor Thutmose IV. Next, they will tour the Temple of Derr, a treasured example from the celebrated reign of Ramesses II and his preferred rock-cut architectural style. Finally, guests can explore the rare surviving rock-cut tomb of the Viceroy of Kush at Tomb of Pennut. Like the nearby temples, it was relocated due to the Aswan Dam's flooding of its original location. Following their day of tours, guests will return to the cruise where they can later attend a cocktail party and experience a traditional Nubian show. Dinner will be onboard for an enjoyable cruise experience overnight on Lake Nasser. Meals Included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner

Travel Joy Egypt guests will start their day with breakfast onboard the Lake Nasser cruise. An early morning excursion will take them to Wadi El Seboua for an unforgettable experience, as this area is home to numerous relocated ancient sites. Wadi El Seboua contains two "New Kingdom" temples as well as the Temple of Dakka and Temple of Maharraqua. Most visitors dedicate a full day to explore these structures. Many begin at the famous "Valley of the Lions" avenue lined with sphinxes that leads to the older temple. Built by Amenhotep III, this rock-cut temple with intact brick pylon and courtyard/main hall is dedicated to the Nubian god Horus. Guests will enjoy lunch aboard the cruise before it sails to Aswan. Dinner and overnight stays on Lake Nasser are included. Meals Included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner

After a nourishing breakfast aboard the cruise, the Travel Joy Egypt guests will embark on an exploration of the Temple of Kalabsha with their resident Egyptologist. Situated near the High Dam, Kalabsha Temple is a customary first stop for Lake Nasser cruises. Originally 30 miles south of its current location, the temple was moved here after construction of the dam flooded its former site. Commenced during the Ptolomaic Dynasty's reign and finished under Roman Emperor Augustus, Kalabsha Temple intriguingly merges Egyptian, Roman, and Nubian design with reliefs of both pharaohs and Romans worshipping the Nubian god Mandulis. Following the visit, guests will disembark from the cruise where a Travel Joy Egypt representative will reliably transfer them to their lodging in Aswan. Meals Included: Breakfast

Day 1: Arrival at Aswan - Aswan Visits & Embark on the Cruise Upon arrival in Aswan, the Luxor And Aswan Travel representative will meet and transfer the guests to the Lake Nasser Nile Cruise for embarkation and check-in. Lunch will be served onboard. In the afternoon, guests will join their Egyptologist guide to explore Aswan city highlights including the magnificent High Dam constructed under President Gamal Abdel Nasser in 1960 to control Nile flooding. They will cruise down the Nile by motorboat to Agilika Island to visit the Temple of Philae that was built in the Greco-Roman era and dedicated to goddess Isis, mother of Horus. One of Aswan's marvels also included is a tour of The Unfinished Obelisk, a massive red granite monument left unfinished for god Amun Ra. After an educational day of sightseeing, guests will return to the Nile Cruise onboard dinner and overnight accommodation. Meals Included: Lunch Dinner

Travel Joy Egypt guests will start their morning with a nourishing breakfast aboard the cruise. Your Egyptologist guide will then lead a tour of the Temple of Kalabsha, often the first landmark visited on Lake Nasser trips due to its proximity to the High Dam. Built under Ptolemaic and Roman rule, its intriguing fusion of Egyptian, Nubian and Roman motifs pays tribute to gods like Mandulis. Next, guests will explore Beit el-Wali Temple, rescued from Lake Nasser's rising waters by Polish archaeologists. Constructed in a symmetrical cruciform shape around a deep sanctuary hall and containing stone carvings, this speos or rock-cut temple offers insight into Nubian traditions. Upon return to the cruise, guests can refresh over lunch as the vessel sails towards Wadi El Sebou, passing through the Tropic of Cancer. Later meals including a sumptuous dinner will be provided onboard for guests' comfort and enrichment during their Lake Nasser voyage. Meals Included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner

Travel Joy Egypt guests will start their day with a hearty breakfast aboard the cruise ship. Their guide will then escort them to Wadi El Sebou to explore its awe-inspiring Lions' Avenue leading to the temple of Ramesses II. Despite relocation during the 1960s, its magnificence remained forgotten until recent preservation efforts. After the tour, guests will board the vessel for a delicious lunch. As the cruise sets sail for Amada, guests can relax and admire the scenic surroundings of Lake Nasser. Amada Temple, dating back to the 18th Dynasty, is one of the region's oldest monuments and predates later pharaohs like Ramesses II and Abu Simbel. Indicating their mark even centuries later, additions from Ramesses and his son Merenptah can still be seen inside. Dinner and overnight accommodation will be provided onboard, enhancing this educational and luxurious Lake Nasser cruise experience with Travel Joy Egypt. Meals Included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner

Travel Joy Egypt guests will awake to an early morning cruise with scenic views of Kasr Ibrim from the sun deck. Once a formidable riverside city, Kasr Ibrim now appears as an island due to construction of the Aswan High Dam. Next, the cruise will sail on to Abu Simbel for a tour of the spectacular temples of Pharaoh Ramesses II, expertly carved into the mountainside during the 13th century BC. Following the 1960s decision to build the Aswan High Dam, the temples were meticulously dismantled and reconstructed on a plateau above the structure's reservoir. Included meals aboard the cruise will be breakfast, lunch and dinner. An optional excursion offers the immersive Sound and Light show in the evening, projecting imagery of the temples in their original glory accompanied by an engaging narration in many languages through personalized audio receivers. Witnessing Egypt's past come alive after dark is sure to create unforgettable memories for guests of Travel Joy Egypt.

Travel Joy Egypt guests will enjoy a final nourishing breakfast onboard the cruise before checking out. A representative will then reliably transfer everyone to Aswan Airport where they can catch flights back to Cairo, concluding this remarkable Lake Nasser voyage of historical discovery, luxurious accommodations and excellent local hospitality. We hope all our guests have gained fascinating cultural insights and cherished memories through visiting Egypt's most prized relics in comfort and safety.

EXCELLENT ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!!! It's a shame that it can only be given 5 stars, because I would like to give it 20 stars for the excellent service they offered me. I wholeheartedly recommend Travel Joy Egypt, from the first message their kindness and willingness to help me has been their personal trademark. I am a woman and I traveled alone to Cairo for 5 days, and I have never felt so well cared for and safe, this thanks to this tourism company that cared from the first moment to make me feel comfortable, they always knew how to adapt to my needs. Omar is an excellent advisor, very kind, patient, quick to respond and has been a key player in coordinating all the details of my trip. Hesham, my assigned Spanish guide, 10/10, he is an EXCELLENT guide, his level of Spanish is too good, he is very patient too, and he is also very intelligent with everything related to Egyptian culture, he always had an answer to all my questions . The driver of the vehicle was very friendly and spoke English. The car is always clean, with air conditioning and with window protectors for the sun. They always arrived on time and invited me to eat Egyptian snacks, I really appreciated this! I am not a person who repeats the same destination but I am sure that Egypt will be an exception, I want to return with my family and without a doubt we will take the same service with Travel Joy Egypt. Thanks for everything !!! Andrea

Perfect trip Our entire stay in Egypt was amazing thanks to Travel Joy. They made sure my mom and I had the best 12 days touring Cairo, Aswan, Luxor and Hurghada. Kero and Emily were always making sure that everything went well and that the trip coordination was excellent! They also helped us with all the reservations and with every favor we asked for during our stay. We couldn't be happier to have had Mito and Mohamed as our guides. They speak excellent Spanish and answered all of our questions about the temples. We will definitely return to Egypt and choose Travel Joy as our host again. We leave very happy and feeling as if we had been with friends these days.

Memorable multi-city tour of Egypt Our group of 13 had a memorable multi-city tour of Egypt thanks to Travel Joy and guide Mostafa. Over 6 months of planning ensured smooth sailing from start to finish. Comfortable transit aboard a spacious Toyota Coaster added enjoyment between destinations. We were delighted by most aspects of the 3-night deluxe Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor, taking in iconic sights along the river. A road trip to Abu Simbel and Alexandria broadened cultural horizons outside Cairo as well. Our dedicated guide Mostafa and his cheerful team, including Omar and Kiro, anticipated every need with excellent hospitality. Relying on their local expertise enhanced appreciation for Egypt's rich history. While optional excursions hold value exploring off-itinerary, do thorough research beforehand. Knowing typical pricing prevents potential mismatches in expectations. When time permits, leisurely browsing artisan workshops and perfumeries can also prove rewarding after confirmed interest and minor negotiation. Overall, Travel Joy Egypt delivered wonderful memories through meticulous coordination. I'm grateful for their passion in sharing this magnificent land and cultures with visitors from around the world.
