'Felucca' cruise highlights Travel in Style tour

SAN FRANCISCO -- Travel in Style has designed a 12-night Felucca on the Nile program, giving clients a chance to sail on Nile waters aboard one of Egypt's traditional riverboats.

Clients on Travel in Style's Felucca on the Nile tour will sleep out under the stars on the decks of the traditional riverboats. A three-day cruise by felucca, the vessel of choice since the time of the ancient pharaohs, is the centerpiece of this tour, which also includes tours of Cairo, visits to the dam and the Philae Island temple at Aswan as well as the temples of Ramses the Great and Queen Nefertari at Abu Simbel. Other highlights are visits to the temples at Luxor and Karnak.

The Felucca on the Nile program is priced from $1,580 per person, double.

Departures this year are Nov. 5 and Dec. 3. The cost includes air fare from New York; accommodations in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan; most meals; entrance fees, and the services of local guides.

Passengers will find themselves close to ancient history when on this Nile cruise, with visits to Kom Ombo and Edfu.

What they won't find is a captain's reception, midnight buffets or even a cabin; passengers will be given their own sleeping bags, which they will stretch out on the deck to sleep in under the stars. The felucca's capacity is limited to six passengers, and meals on board are served camp-style.
