Für uns war es die perfekte Nilkreuzfahrt. Wir glauben nicht, dass man hier noch irgend etwas verbessern kann. Wir können jedem dieses Schiff nur empfehlen. Es hebt sich deutlich von den anderen Nilkreuzfahrtschiffen ab, was Service, Freundlichkeit des Personals, Organisation und Atmosphäre betrifft. Dieses Schiff hat den Namen LUXUS-NILE CRUISER zurecht verdient. Danke nochmals an die ganze Crew und den sehr netten Boat Manager Mayan Dhawan für 8 unvergessliche Tage auf dem längsten Fluss der Welt.
