And because the majority of Egypt Nile River Cruises have the best facilities & amenities for their guests during the whole time of their vacation, booking a Nile River Cruise tour will be one of the most exciting adventures you can have in Egypt. There are lots of things to think about before planning a Nile River cruise tour and one of the major items is the best time that you need to consider for such an adventure and this is what is going to be discussed below with some tips & advice for a perfect adventure.
Based on Egypt’s weather during the whole year and depending on the fact that the hottest part of Egypt lies in its Upper section “Luxor & Aswan” where you can enjoy your Nile River Cruise, the most recommended time for a Nile River cruise should be between October and April. During that time, it won’t be too hot and this is very important as you will be able to visit Egypt’s temples & valleys without getting hot. Summer season isn’t recommended at all for Nile River Cruise tours since the average temperature hovers over 100F and it gets hotter when you get inside a tomb or a closed site. During winter & spring, the temperature gets much cooler and more suitable for arranging the best Nile River Cruise tour ever.
There are some items that you shouldn’t forget while planning a Nile River Cruise tour just like a small flashlight, bug spray, sunglasses, a hat, a hand fan, tissues, sunscreen, hand cleanser, binoculars, anti-diarrhea medicine, and similar items to make sure that you spend sufficient time on board. You also need to bring with you comfortable clothing and footwear to enjoy your tours and accommodation in the best possible way. Read more about what to pack for a Nile river cruise.
Good News is that there is no specific dress code that you are committed to on the board of the Nile River Cruise and feel free to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and well-rested but the main thing to keep in mind is that your clothes must be conservative ones in order not to get any unnecessary attention to you. Feel free to wear your swimsuit while being on the upper part of the cruise during swimming in the cruise’s swimming pool, the thing is nothing wrong with that.
