by Jessica Montevago


Alexander+Roberts has partnered with Oberoi for a journey in Cairo and on the Nile aboard the new Oberoi Philae cruiser.

The Visions of Egypt tour will take travelers to sea for four nights and then spend four nights at a five-star Kempinski Nile Hotel.

The Oberoi Philae’s staterooms feature 388 square feet of living and sleeping space, including soaking tubs and rainforest showers, 40” LCD televisions, complimentary high-speed WiFi, personal bars and glass walls. The ship also offers an elegant restaurant, a more casual lounge and a poolside cafe.

Itineraries on the new Oberoi Philae begin in February 2017 with departures scheduled through 2018.

Including accommodations, 17 meals and three internal flights, the tour costs $3,799 per person. Alexander+Roberts is offering special savings of $1,000 per couple ($500 solo) for bookings made before March 15, 2017 for all sailings through 2018 when paid in full.

Tip of the Day
