January 21 CAIRO, EGYPT
Arrive in Cairo, where you'll be met by an AmaWaterways representative who will help you
with your luggage and the customs and immigration process. With your baggage and customs
taken care of and a new stamp in your passport, you will now be driven to your hotel.
January 22 CAIRO
A full day of captivating attractions await, beginning with the exquisite Egyptian Museum,
with its 120,000 artifacts on display. Home to some of the greatest masterpieces ever
crafted, its unique collection of Pharaonic art includes mummies and the priceless treasures
of Tutankhamen, the Boy King. Afterwards, venture to the bustling and colorful 14th-century
Khan el-Khalili for a welcome lunch at the famous Naguib Mahfouz Restaurant, named after
one of Egypt's most well-known authors. Afterward, tour El-Moez Street, one of Cairo's most
remarkable historic places. Then, visit the Mosque of Muhammad - also known as the
Alabaster Mosque - which majestically sits on the summit of the Citadel of Saladin's
courtyard. From the arcaded courtyard, enjoy the breathtaking view across the city to the
Pyramids of Giza. Inside the Mosque, marvel at an ornate interior and a splendid array of
lamps suspended from the intricately decorated ceiling. (B, L)
January 23 CAIRO
Discover the monuments at the UNESCO-designated ancient capital of Memphis. You'll visit
the huge statue of Ramses II, the Alabaster Sphinx and the necropolis of Sakkara - site of
the famous step pyramid of King Zoser, the oldest pyramid on earth. You'll then go to the
Great Sphinx and the iconic Giza complex, which consists of three large pyramids built
between 2589 BC and 2504 BC Another ancient wonder you'll encounter is the Khufu solar
boat designed to carry the pharaoh across the sky with the Sun God, which is restored and
preserved in the Giza Solar Boat Museum. Today's adventure concludes with a lovely lunch
at the famous Mena House, a historic palatial hotel, based in the shadow of the great
Pyramids of Giza. (B, L)
January 24 CAIRO - LUXOR - EMBARKATION
After checking out of the hotel, take a morning flight south to Luxor-formerly known as
Thebes, the capital city of the New Kingdom of Upper Egypt. Luxor, a UNESCO World
Heritage Site, is home to two astonishing temples-Karnak and Luxor. Luxor is also your
gateway to many of Egypt's vast treasures that you'll discover throughout your Nile River
Valley cruise, so it is here that you'll be welcomed aboard the AmaDahlia. During the late
afternoon, you will visit the Temple of Luxor, constructed over hundreds of years by
Amenhotep III, Ramses II, Tutankhamun and other pharaohs. After your visit, continue to
experience Egyptian magic with a traditional folkloric-style belly dance on board the
AmaDahlia. (B, L, D)
January 25 LURXOR - EDFU
Visit the tombs of ancient Egypt in the Valley of the Kings- one of the most famous
archeological sites in the world. The spectacular rock-cut tombs located on the west bank
of Luxor include that of the enigmatic King Tutankhamun, whose mummified remains are still
here on display. Afterwards, go to Deir el-Bahri to see the Temple of Hatshepsut, one of
Egypt's most successful pharaohs and its first female ruler. Next, you'll visit the Valley
of Queens, home to the mummified remains of more than 30 queens and princesses, including
Nefertari's Tomb, where you'll enjoy exclusive access. Your day's adventure concludes with
an up-close view of the Colossi of Memnon-two gigantic statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III.
Once back on board the AmaDahlia, cap the day off with a Captain's Welcome Cocktail.
(B, L, D)
January 26 EDFU - ASWAN
The city of Edfu is best known for one of Egypt's most remarkably preserved temples,
dedicated to Horus, the falcon-headed god. Built in 230 BC, it is the second-largest
temple in Egypt and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with walls that display compelling details
about the religion and language of the country's Greco-Roman period. After visiting Edfu,
relax on board and take in the Nile River's timeless landscapes as the ship continues
onward to Aswan, and then in the evening, celebrate your inner Egyptian at an onboard
Galabeya party. Don traditional Egyptian attire, meet new friends, toast to adventures
past and future, dance and bask in the glory of the Egyptian night. (B, L, D)
January 27 ASWAN
Enjoy free time in Aswan or go on an optional excursion to Abu Simbel. If you choose
the optional excursion (additional charge is $325 per person if pre booked), you'll
take an early morning flight to Lake Nasser to the more than 3,000-year-old Abu Simbel,
a UNESCO World Heritage Site dedicated to Ramses II, one of the most active of pharaohs,
along with the smaller temple dedicated to his chief wife Queen Nefertari. The front
of the main temple has four gargantuan statues of Ramses II on his throne, each
measuring nearly 70 feet high and discovered half buried in sand in 1813. During the
afternoon, take a peaceful ride in a felucca, a traditional Egyptian sailboat, to the
colorful Nubian Village of Hessa. Meet the warm and friendly Nubian people who will
welcome you to their village. Enjoy lunch here before going back to the ship. Tonight,
there is an optional outing to a sound and light show at Philae Temple. (B, L, D)
January 28 ASWAN - ESNA
Visit the Aswan High Dam and then the Unfinished Obelisk, commissioned by Queen
Hatshepsut. Next, explore the UNESCO-designated Philae Temple complex, with one of the
most stunningly restored and preserved hieroglyphs in Egypt, built between 380 BC and
362 BC and dedicated to the goddess Isis, the wife of Osiris and mother of Horus. After
your visit here, cruise to the Great Temple of Kom Ombo, where its soaring columns
dramatically rise above the Nile River. Unique in Egypt, this temple is dedicated to two
gods-the crocodile god, Sobek, sitting on the right; and the falcon-headed Haroeris, "The
Good Doctor." Once back on board AmaDahlia, enjoy an afternoon of scenic sailing to Esna,
where you'll spend the night before sailing back to Luxor. (B, L, D)
January 29 ESNA - LUXOR
Spend the morning cruising back to Luxor, where you'll explore the Temple of Karnak, the
largest religious complex in Egypt and one of the largest in the world, covering about
200 acres in a vast network of columns, hieroglyphics, obelisks, sphinxes and colossi-even
a lake. Built over the course of 1,300 years, it is overwhelming. 80,000 laborers took
part in its creation during the 19th dynasty alone. Despite its rich history, the temple
lay hidden until the 19th century. The effort to restore it continues still. The Hypostyle
Hall is a great architectural marvel and filled with its roof blocks, supported by colossal
134 columns standing at 70 feet high, with 12 larger columns standing at 80 feet high lining
the central aisle. It is still the largest room of any religious building in the world.
(B, L, D)
January 30 LUXOR - QENA - LUXOR
Set sail to Qena to explore the Great Temple of Abydos of Seti I, one of the lesser-known
pharaohs of the New Kingdom of ancient Egypt. Next, you'll go to Dendara to visit the
best-preserved temple in Egypt, the Temple of Hathor - the Goddess of Love, to whom the
powers of joy, feminine love and motherhood were attributed. The temple was built by
Ptolemy and a group of Romans who worshipped her; so don't miss the back of the temple
where there is a relief depicting Cleopatra with Caesarion, her son by Julius Caesar,
the Roman Emperor who brought us the months of July and August. Following your visit here,
sail back to Luxor. (B, L, D)
January 31 LUXOR - DISEMBARKATION - CAIRO
Disembark the ship in Luxor and fly back to Cairo where you will be taken to the Abdeen
Presidential Palace, considered one of the most luxurious palaces in the world. The palace
consists of multiple museums, including the Silver Museum; the Arms Museum; the Royal Family
Museum; a Presidential Gifts Museum and a Historical Documents Museum, which is a relatively
new addition. It is also one of the official residences and places of work for the President
of Egypt. Afterwards, be treated to a very special lunch at the palace. Finally, you'll
explore the old part of the city, which includes Coptic Cairo, where the Hanging Church and
Ben Ezra Synagogue are located. (B, L)
February 1 CAIRO
Bid farewell to Cairo and prepare for your flight home. (B)
