WTM UPDATE: Discover Egypt announces new products for 2018/2019, with savings for solo travellers

Discover Egypt, which rejoined AITO last month, has announced a raft of new products at World Travel Market (WTM).

In terms of new vessels, the M/S Tulip has started seven-night cruises on the Nile, following a refurbishment. There are 40 standard cabins, all with a panoramic window and balcony rail, as well as eight upper deck junior suites with outside terraces, and two single cabins with no single supplement. Voyages start from £997 per person for December 3 and 10, including direct flights from Heathrow to Luxor, full board accommodation and 10 guided excursions.

Also new to Discover Egypt is the Sonesta Amirat, a smaller vessel with five cabins and two suites to offer an experience which is removed from the typical tourist radar, with visits to small islands, local villages and lesser-known Pharaonic sites. The vessel features an open-air Jacuzzi, sundeck and common lounge.

For 2019, a new long Nile cruise from Cairo to Aswan has been launched. The itineraries cover 600 miles through Lower, Middle and Upper Egypt on the five-star Jaz Royale, starting on February 21, 2019. There are four itineraries available - an 11-night cruise from £1,799 per person, a 12-night cruise from £1,899 per person, and two 14-night cruises from £2,099. The Jaz Royale has 48 cabins, all of which are air-conditioned. Two lower deck cabins are available with no single supplement.

For clients seeking additional destinations to their Egyptian experience, Jordan and Israel can be added to itineraries, with daily flights to Cairo from Heathrow, weekly flights to Luxor, which can then be combined with regional links.
