Join Emerald Waterways to uncover the ancient treasures along the Nile

Emerald Waterways is offering two new destinations to explore in style this year; Egypt and Jordan

** Save up to £1,400 per couple on May & September departures **

Regional departures available

Starting in Cairo – home of the Great Pyramids of Giza and the artefact-rich Egyptian Museum – you’ll journey back in time on the new 10-day Cairo and Ancient Egypt river cruise. As you venture along the river dubbed the ‘lifeblood of Egypt’, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to learn about the ancient civilisations that relied on the Nile, and the archaeological treasures that continue to line its banks. Book either the 3 May or 13 September 2019 departures and save £700 per person, with prices for the 10-day itinerary starting from £2,270 per person (departing from 6 different UK airports*).

For an added adventure, travellers can travel on to the Kingdom of Jordan for the chance to delve deep into another country brimming with ancient ruins and historical treasures. The new 15-day Cairo to Amman tour and Ancient Egypt river cruise sees travellers fly from Cairo to Luxor, before discovering the hieroglyphic adorned Hathor’s Temple, marvelling at the World Heritage-listed city of Petra, whose magnificent buildings are carved from its rose-red cliffs, enjoying a Jeep Adventure through Wadi Rum’s desert valley and travelling to the lowest point on earth; the Dead Sea. Travel on 13 September 2019 to save £700 per person, with prices for the 15-day tour starting from £3,720 per person (departing from 6 different UK airports*).

Guests on both new itineraries will travel in style aboard the luxurious, chartered MS Hamees river ship, refurbished last year to deliver five-star service throughout, from its swimming pool and sun deck to chic dining and entertainment options.

Prices include return flights, transfers, nights onboard as stated, all tipping and gratuities, food and selected *drinks onboard, shore excursions and exclusive on board events and experiences.
