Our Spiritual Tours of Egypt Cruise Boats
Nile River Cruises and Lake Nasser Cruises

One of the highlights of our spiritual tours of Egypt is a cruise of the Nile River and Lake Nasser.  There are hundreds of cruise boats on the Nile River all offering a range of experiences for your to enjoy.   There are several cruise boats on Lake Nasser.  Here at Spiritual Egypt Tours we like to give our guests a taste of the real Egypt and where possible in the itineraries for our spiritual tours of Egypt we choose to use hotels and cruise boats that reflect this.  Scroll down the page for information on Afandina Nile River Cruise and MS Eugenie Lake Nasser Cruise Boats

Nile Cruise

Our cruise boat of choice for Nile River Cruises is the privately owned dhahabeya The Afandina.  Dhahabeyas have travelled the length and breadth of the Nile for centuries and today it reminds us of a world from long ago when life was gentle and time seemed to stand still. Cleopatra and Julius Caesar are said to have honeymooned on a dhahabeya cruising the Nile River.
