Alexandria's cruise ship terminal is pleasant and clean but far away from most of the city's attractions. Taxis are available at the port entrance. The Corniche, the waterfront boulevard, is a 10-minute drive away.
Many people who visit Alexandria on a cruise ship choose a day trip to Cairo, which is about two and a half hours away. Ship-sponsored excursions leave from the dock, but it is possible to book an independent tour from stands around the port.
