Assaf (Ilsun), has reported on our roll call, that Oceania has compensated him for his trouble, and he will be rejoining us at Haifa...🙂

Oceania made a mistake and have acknowledged it.  It is always the way a problem is handled that defines a Company.     I sincerely hope that the Assafs enjoy the "second half"  of their cruise and is able to put this very unfortunate upset behind them.    J

DH and I did this 3 years ago.  We stayed overnight in Giza at the historic Mena House which I see is now bearing the Marriott name.  It’s where all the heads of state used to stay on visits to Cairo. I think it was originally built as a king’s palace.  You get a fabulous view of the pyramids from the swimming pool area since you’re right next to them.  It’s going for under $100 night right now which is a fabulous price for this famous hotel.

 

We used a local tour company, Memphis I think, for a car/driver and English speaking guide.  You’ll be surprised at how modern the Cairo airport is.  If you spend the night, the sound and light show at the pyramids is good.  The trip was well worth it.  Good luck!

Passing Perim Island, in the Bab al-Mandab Strait.... leaving the Gulf of Aden into the Red Sea.

I just heard that Oceania has cancelled the overland two day tour in Egypt. I have friends on board who were booked on it and I know they’ll be super disappointed. Are you still looking for others interested in going with you? Let me know and I’ll pass your name and cabin number to my friends (there’s two of them) in case they’re still keen on going to Cairo. Thanks!

Did you stay in Safaga only for a day instead of two?

If so, did they substitute a port?
