After introducing an Egypt river cruise-tour last year, Scenic has
added dates for the program for 2019 due to strong sales.
The 11-day "Treasures of Egypt" itinerary includes a Nile cruise on
Sanctuary Retreats' 36-passenger Sanctuary Sun Boat III. There are new dates in September, October and November
The cruise-tour combines a five-day Nile sailing between
Luxor and Aswan with six days touring Cairo and Giza. For the Nile sailing,
Scenic has secured a private charter of the recently refurbished Sanctuary Sun
Boat III, which has a pool on the sun deck
with tented lounge chairs, a bar and a restaurant.
For the land portion,
guests will stay at the Mena House Hotel with views of the Pyramids in Giza
just outside of Cairo. Additional accommodations will be at the Sofitel Winter
Palace in Luxor, Sofitel Legend Old Cataract in Aswan, and St.
Prices start at $5,395 per person, based on double occupancy. Scenic is offering free airfare or $1,000 in savings if customers book a departure from September 2018 through November 2019 by Aug. 31, 2018.
Travelers can combine the Egypt itinerary with Scenic's
10-day "Kingdom of Jordan Unveiled" for a 20-day tour, with prices starting at $9,495 per person. Four-day extensions are available to Dubai
