When to Take a Luxury Egypt Cruise

Egypt is a country that experiences warm weather throughout the year. However, the summer months can become incredibly hot so those who do not cope well with intense heat would want to avoid the month of August at least due to ferociousness of the desert at this time. There are also several events during the year which you may wish to travel in time to see, such as:

  • March brings with it the celebration of Sham al-Naseem which marks the coming of spring. There will be dancing and musicians in the streets and lots of traditional dishes to try.
  • In June the annual rise of the Nile is celebrated. This festival sees lots of riverbank picnics.

Even without these celebrations your luxury Egyptian Cruise will be a magnificent trip that you will remember for a lifetime.
