New Nile Route

Executive summary by darmansjah

PLYING a recently reopened route from Cairo to Aswan (or vice versa), this cruise aboard the luxe 32-cabin Sanctuary Nile Adventurer is a veritable survey of Egyptian history, from Abydos, and ancient city dedicated to Osiris and a burial place for early pharaohs, to the rock tombs of Beni Hassan, cut into the limestone cliffs of the Nile for provincial rulers during the middle kingdom. Onboard perks include lectures on Egyptology and classes on hieroglyphics and Egyptian cooking. Sanctuary Retreats: “Nile Adventurer,” 10 days; $3,440.
