How relaxing one River cruise we experienced it ourselves on the Rhone. You can also experience this in Egypt. Hardly any other type of travel is more relaxing than a large Nile cruise from Cairo to Aswan. During your Nile cruise through Egypt, you sit on the sun deck, enjoy a sundowner and let the Egyptian landscape slowly slide past you. Watches the sunset. No street noise disturbs the peace. One can see water birds and animals on the river bank. On the Nile, the cruise ship traverses cultural landscapes that are ancient. Cities on the Nile continue to appear on the banks, where people have been using the river's water for agriculture for thousands of years. The electricity ensures the fertility of the soil.
