Concierge.com's insider take:
Yes, the whole dinner cruise idea is a bit cheesy, but it's a classic Cairo experiencefor both locals and touristsand it's actually fun. And if you're going to spend a small fortune to have dinner on one of the most mystical rivers in the world, it should be on this gilded barge, tarted up to look as if it sailed right out of King Tut's tomb, complete with live Nubian guardians decked out in white loincloths, spears, and golden headdresses. The buffet mixes Egyptian classics with plenty of international choices, while the floor show mingles musicians, Sufi dervishes, and Russian belly dancers. The best part is hanging out after dinner on the upper deck, feeling cool Nile breezes, as Cairo, in all its magnificence, slowly slips past.
