It is not often that we have a hospitality experience so exceptional that I feel compelled to write about it at length, yet my recent trip to Egypt with Noble Caledonia aboard the SS Misr last month was one of those unforgettable, once in a life time experiences.

The Traveline team were way beyond guides and drivers. Anwar is so special in ways he already knows but they do need to be mentioned. The way Anwar integrated with George on the boat and on the sites made the trip even more remarkable. The security people were helpful, obvious but not intrusive. One of them was very helpful with our travel friends. I could go on with Judith keeping the ball rolling but you know that already.
Also, I know that others are writing reviews of their own. They are more articulate than I am. Please pass this on to as many people as you can.


We have recently returned from a most enjoyable trip down the Nile from Assuan to Cairo. Apart from wanting to mention our guides, we were also most impressed by the security precautions and, last but not least, by the efficiency and friendliness of the staff on board. The meals were excellent

Sally Catrwright (my wife) and I travelled on SS Misr's 600 Mile Nile cruise departing on 1 September and had a very good trip.

I hope I can come back soon on the SS Misr. It has been the most enjoyable holiday of a life time. Everything was great and superb!!!! Mostly the kindness of every member of the SS Misr crew.

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful trip to Egypt made all the more memorable by our seven night stay cruising the Nile on SS Misr. We love staying in traditional surroundings and it did not disappoint. I especially loved the sepia photographs lining the walls of the elegant dining room and comfortable wicker armchairs on deck. Well-chosen Belle Époque furnishings throughout gave the ship a period feel of which I'm sure Agatha Christie would have approved! I loved the attention

I was excited to book a trip on the SS Misr and the reality has been even better than what I hoped for.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time on SS Misr. The ship is very comfortable, the staff charming and efficient, and the Chef is wonderful!

We had an excellent cruise on the MS Misr 2nd-9th November. The whole crew were in their usual sparkling form and treated us all to a wonderful time. All excursions went well, and once again Mohamed Younes provided everyone with a first class introduction to Ancient Egyptian art & life. Thank you for coordinating transfers etc. for my daughter Mrs Ursula Gardner. It was 40 years since her childhood trip to Egypt, so she had many half memories. For me, it made an ideal family reunion with the Australian side.

The SS Misr has been wonderful and nothing was too much for the staff.

This is our last day on Misr, before we go to the Winter Palace Hotel. We had a wonderful time. We have seen a lot and we eat a lot. I would like to thank you and to congratulate you on the Misr , the company running it, and on the staff working on the boat. We were overwhelmed by the service , professionalism and friendliness of everybody. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and whatever we asked for was attended to and done immediately with a smile. I expected our cruise to be fine, but but what we have seen and experienced on the Misr exceeded our expectations.

"This holiday has been the best holiday of my life I also think that service has also been the best I have ever seen to be completely honest I can not find any faults with the service or anything to do with the ship I really do hope to come here again in the future maybe even with my kids someday ."
