Kuki, Thank you for a very enjoyable & imformative report . You looked great on the camel !!! The problems that arose at Alexandria for the ships tour make me glad that we have booked a private tour , mainlty because of experience we have had with latecomers. Would you advise getting some Egyptian Pounds for small purchases & tips ? does the casino allow you to buy chips etc & charge it to your account ? We are on the May 31 cruise .
