We sailed on the Omar El Khayam (beautiful boat with great service, food, nice rooms, lovely pool and deck area)on Lake Nasser..toured a number of temples along the way. We... More

One of those bucket list experiences with great sunsets. The omar el khayam is very clean and spruce and run by a very hands on hotel manager with a great personality. The public spaces are huge and in first class condition. It was a quarter full just a Viking goup and seven independents. We had booked a group tour with... More

We did a lake cruise on the Omar El Khayam as part of our tour of Egypt and found it very pleasant. Some of the small temples we saw along the way were interesting, although all had been relocated.

We were scheduled for the 3 night sailing from Abu Simbel to Aswan aboard the MS Prince Abbas. The room was incredibly filthy and worn out. The carpets have NEVER been cleaned; thick dirt, dust and insects have collected in all corners, the lampshades and on the baseboards. The A/C unit vent into the room was gray and thick with...

Did a tour cruise on Lake Nasser on the M/S Prince Abbas. Service and food on the boat was excellent. Rooms were clean and housekeeping kept it that way. As there were only 30 people on the boat during the cruise we practically had the boat to ourselves. It was quiet and restful.

Lake Nasser is a vast reservoir in southern Egypt and northern Sudan. Strictly, "Lake Nasser" refers only to the much larger portion of the lake that is in Egyptian territory (83% of the total), with the Sudanese preferring to call their smaller body of water Lake Nubia The area of Sudan-administered Wadi Halfa Salient was largely flooded by Lake Nasser/Lake...

Well done. Beautiful place and totally functional. In harmony with the cultural heritage. Dismantling and reconstruction of Ramses and Nefertiti temples absolutely remarkable. Wow.

What an amazing three days, though we did have the whole boat to the four of us. Personal service to the extreme! A not to be missed trip. Our boat was the Movenpick MS Prince Abbas. We sailed from Abu Simbel to Aswan, visiting several Temples that had been moved when the lake was formed. Nothing around except the temples... More

This review is quite late. The blue waters of Lake Nasser are visible from the Ramses Temple in Abu Simbel. From a distance it looks so beautiful and impressive in the middle of the Nubian desert. Lake Nasser is actually a huge artificial lake that was created by the opening of the Aswan High Dam.
