This is a well maintained cruise ship. Very clean in the areas used by the passengers. The crew we had contact with were always friendly and helpful. An example is the room stewards. They introduced themselves to us upon arrival and from that point on they always greeted us by name each time we encountered them on the ship.

We encountered very large crowds and a massive traffic jam in the city as we were there on a holiday. Fortunately we used the tour offered on the ship and left the logistics of getting around to the tour guides.
Don't Miss: Take the time to see the Blue Mosque and the Bazaar

The tour to Cairo/Giza was a very long day (13 hours off of the ship). Some opted to stay overnight in Cairo on another tour option. This is probably a less tiring but expensive option. The port area in Alexandria offers very little for the tourist. If you want to see this city, a tour or a taxi to get away from the port is needed.
Don't Miss: The tour to the Pyramids and Sphinx.

Walks the narrow lanes of the city and enjoy the many surprises as you wind through the small city to find the windmills on the hill. Take the public ferry over to Delos to see the ruins. You can do this instead of using the offered tour on the ship and get back in plenty of time to enjoy the city.
Don't Miss: Delos

Get on a bus and ride to the town at the west end of the Island. Good views, plenty of interesting buildings, and shops. You do not need a guided tour which is offered on the ship for this activity.
