Kuki thank you for another great report , you have certainlly given us somtihng to think about our tours from Alexandria!!! we had booked a private overngiht tour with Nile blue tours but are thinking about changing to a similar Itinary that you did, , that way we do not have the worry of getting back to the ship on time. your photos are really good , regarding being able to buy chips on your account can you change them back to cash to play the machines? we really appreciate you taking time from your vacation to do the report and answer our questions . I have been folowing the chip on the Cruise Cam , enjoy the rest of the cruise .
