Egyptian coast recommended for east Mediterranean cruises

Date Posted: 19 Oct 2009
Category:
Holidaymakers embarking on eastern Mediterranean cruises may pass along the north Egyptian coast, an area stepped in history.

With a number of cruising options, from all-out luxury to last-minute getaways, arriving by boat can be one of the best ways to see what the north African country has to offer.

Travellers who prefer to stay on water once arriving in Egypt can opt for a felucca, a traditional wooden sailing boat, which can take them along a stretch of the upper Nile at their own pace.

Others may wish to extend their cruise experiencing by travelling down the world's longest river on a larger vessel.

With the hassle of packing and unpacking removed, cruises are a popular way to explore the eastern Mediterranean region, which is known for its many attractions.

While Egypt offers travellers the chance to see a slice of north Africa, many cruise ships will also take in the Greek islands, Israel, Turkey and Cyprus.

One of the most popular Egyptian cruise destinations is the Temple of Karnak, which is among the country's most important places of worship.
