Be hypnotised by Egypt on a magnificent Nile cruise taking in ancient landmarks, before a five-star, all-inclusive Red Sea break – includes all travel

This memorable holiday combines a week-long, full-board Nile cruise along Egypt’s legendary waterway from Luxor to Aswan and back, discovering some of its most amazing archaeological wonders, with a five-star all-inclusive stay at a Red Sea beach resort.

You’ll begin right on the iconic Nile, on a seven-night, full-board, luxury Nile cruise aboard the M.S. Mayfair - a truly upscale river cruiser with impeccable five-star standards, and regarded as one of the finest ships to ply this ancient waterway. Visiting and exploring some of Egypt’s most popular sites, you will spend time in Luxor (home to the Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut's Temple, the Valley of the Queens) and Colossi of Memnon; cruise on to Edfu and Kom Ombo temples and as far up as Aswan (with its famous High Dam and Temple of Philae) before returning back to Luxor to marvel at the jaw-dropping Temple of Karnak – the largest in the ancient world.

After your mesmerising journey atop the Nile, you'll kick back and relax in all-inclusive bliss alongside the Red Sea at the impressive five-star Mercure Hurghada Hotel, which provides an idyllic base to explore the wonders of the sparkling coast in comfort and style. Alongside a huge outdoor pool and lounger-fringed sun terrace, you’ll find a plethora of bars and eateries. Elsewhere, you can try your hand at watersports, explore the spectacular coral reef with a scuba diving lesson, or simply relax with a hammam massage or a stint in the sauna and Jacuzzi. When it comes to the guest rooms, expect twinkling Red Sea vistas from your own private balcony or terrace.

M.S. Mayfair (seven nights)

Expect first-class treatment on M.S. Mayfair, more akin to a floating hotel than riverboat cruiser. Most impressive is its extravagant entrance lobby, complete with mezzanine Bel Air lounge bar that wouldn’t look out of place in Hollywood. Sun yourself on the lounger-strewn sundeck or under a shady canopy while you watch the world drift by, then take a cooling dip in the nearby pool or Jacuzzi, before a soothing spa session with sauna, steam room and aromatherapy treatments on hand. Expect a large selection of lavishly presented gourmet international fare at Nile Avenue, meticulously prepared by highly qualified chefs, and enjoy evening entertainment that includes music, dancing and folkloric shows.

Your 20-square-metre Deluxe cabin offers marvellous river views through large windows, and is kitted out with a smart black and cream colour combo and dark wood furnishings. You can also expect an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, tea and coffee facilities, a flatscreen TV, minibar and safe.

Mercure Hurghada Hotel (three nights)

Situated on the shores of the Red Sea, Mercure Hurghada Hotel is an ideal base for all-inclusive beachside R&R. The elegant guest rooms are spacious and stylish, with wooden touches and a pop of colour. All feature plenty of mod cons, plus a balcony or terrace so you can make the most of that warm Egyptian air and the twinkling Red Sea vistas. For dining options, you’ll find fresh catch of the day at Asiatic Restaurant and global cuisine al fresco at Dar al Andalus. The Ultra Bar will set you up with cocktails all day, plus late breakfast, afternoon tea, evening drinks and snacks, and the Pool Bar means you never have to leave your lounger.

The hotel and its Fun Fly team will help you book any excursions you might want to take in the area. Swim with a sea turtle or dolphins, learn to dive, board the Sinbad Submarine for an unforgettable underwater adventure or take a quad bike out in the desert.
