The Best 4 Lake Nasser Cruises
If you have already enjoyed a Nile cruise, you will find a Lake Nasser cruise equally as enjoyable. The attractions that you can marvel at during a lake cruise might not be as impressive as the sites you see during a Nile River cruise, but they are still so incredible. Lake Nasser cruises also seem to offer a greater sense of tranquility. You will encounter less cruise ships on the lake, which means that, you are likely to bump into fewer tourists at the attractions you visit during your your cruise.
For visitors who have never experienced a cruise in Egypt, a Nile cruise might be a better choice than a cruise on Lake Nasser. On the other hand, if you have already experienced Nile River cruise, a Lake Nasser cruise is certainly recommended. As is the case with Nile cruises, cruises on Lake Nasser also include lots of sightseeing and the same amount of satisfaction. Here are 4 of the best Lake Nasser cruise offerings:
1. Sai Lake Nasser Cruise
One of the first things many visitors notice when they see pictures of the Sai Lake Nasser cruiser is the significant difference in size between this boat and the average Nile River tourist boats. Another quality which makes lake cruiser unique is the fact that it is made entirely from wood. The owners of this boat had 3 primary objectives when they had this vessel built.
They needed a vessel capable of delivering a truly magical cruise in this less frequented region of Egypt. They wanted to boost tourism in this region. And finally, they wanted a boat that is as environmentally friendly as possible. To make this possible, nearly all electricity on the boat is obtained from solar panels. At this time, those looking to book a cruise can choose between a 4-day Lake Nasser cruise. 4-day Lake Nasser cruises commence in Aswan and terminate at Abu Simbel. 5-day cruises on Lake Nasser commence at Abu Simbel and terminate in Aswan.
2. Luxury Omar El Khayam Lake Nasser Cruises
The Omar El Khayam Lake Nasser cruise ship is owned and operated by the Steigenberger Hotel chain. It is about the same size as most of the large Nile cruise ships. As far as accommodation is concerned, it has 68 double cabins. For those who want a bit more luxury, there are also 8 Grand Suites and 4 Royal Suites. All rooms and cabins have large sliding windows and private terrace.
Onboard facilities include a conference area; a a nice-sized pool for swimming, two sundecks along with a whirlpool; a gift shop; a fitness area and a spa and massage area. Cabins and suites have the same kind of facilities that one would expect to enjoy in in a 5-Star hotel.
3. Nubian Sea Lake Nasser Cruise
As with the two lake cruisers already discussed, the Nubian Sea is also a 5-Star cruise ship. It is a big tourist boat, with roughly the same occupancy capacity as the Omar El Khayam. When you book a lake cruise on this vessel, you are essentially booking a room on a floating hotel that takes you for an adventure you will never forget. The Nubian Sea really does offer a flawless and totally unforgettable cruise experience.
4. Luxury Lake Nasser Cruise Aboard the Prince Abbas
The Prince Abbas lake cruiser belongs to the Movenpick Hotels and Resorts group. Lake Nasser cruises on this vessel are usually only sold by tour operators that focus more on quality than they do on prices. Like other Movenpick owned cruise ships, the Prince Abbas has a range of cabins to suite different needs and desires. From luxurious Presidential suites to more affordable Deluxe rooms, a Lake Nasser cruise on the MS Prince Abbas can be as luxurious as you want it to be.
When it comes to pure comfort and style, there really is not much difference between the for ships discussed in this post. Apart from the Sai cruiser, the remaining three are also much the size.
4-Day and 5-Day Lake Nasser cruises can be booked on all four lake cruisers discussed in this article. The 4-day cruises all commence at Abu Simbel and they terminate at Aswan. All the 5-day and 4-night itineraries commence in Aswan and they terminate at Abu Simbel. Regardless of which river cruiser you pick, your onshore excursions will allow you to see so many marvelous ancient wonders.
