  1. Not golden circle, Grand Circle. I’ve enjoyed 5 Grand Circle Cruises. They only market to Americans but there have been Canadians on several trips.
  2. A Douro Cruise also stops in small villages and towns.
  3. I think Ping Pong was being sarcastic.
  4. I’m leaving in less than 5 weeks for the Eternal Nile trip with OAT, with the pretrip to Jordan. It’ll be my 17th trip with the company, so I know I won’t be disappointed, but it is so great to read your comments, Ella!
  5. I appreciate your info, PacMom. I’m taking my second Road Scholar trip this year, both land tours, but have cruised with GCT and Uniworld. I guess I’ll have to look at RS cruises, but am afraid the single supplement will be prohibitive. It is so sometimes on their land tours.
  6. Roz, I think it was you who said you sail solo? Did you ever find out about how they handle single supplements? After cruising with GCT and Uniworld, I’d like to try Croisi too.
  7. There will be a suggested per person per day gratuity for the ship staff. There will also be a suggested gratuity for the program director...I think usually $7-10 per person per day for the program director. I’ve got 16 trips with OAT or GCT and only once did I not think the maximum was deserved. Cash will be required, either local or US currency, I often do a combination. Laundry is reasonably priced. Pillows were fine but I’m not fussy.
  8. Ella, I’m so looking forward to reading more about your trip!
  9. I’ve done 5 river cruises with GCT ( and two with Uniworld). Do you have any particular questions? I’ve not done the cruise you’re booked on, though.
  10. Oh, I can’t wait to hear about it! Thank you! As I mentioned in another thread, I’ve taken many trips with OAT and have never been disappointed. I’m a solo traveler and have always had a great time. I’ll be interested to hear your impressions.
  11. Funny, I just posted on a thread about Egypt cruises. I’m going in March with Overseas Adventure Travel. My ship is the Aida Dehabeya. I’ll have to report back after my trip ( I’ve traveled about 17 times with the company).
  12. I’m going to Egypt and Jordan with Overseas Adventure Travel in March, it includes a cruise on the Nile.
