Step back in time as you go ashore to explore such ancient wonders as the Great Hypostyle Hall of Karnak, the beguiling Temple of Luxor, the Valley of the Kings, and temples devoted to a pantheon of powerful gods and goddesses. In the words of the ancient Greek scholar Herodotus, “Egypt is the gift of the Nile,” a land and a river destined to amaze you and linger in your memory forever.
