Alexander the Great was a standard 60-cabin boat that has been stripped out and refitted as a 30-cabin floating boutique hotel, furnished with understated elegance. In the dining room, enough tables for two can be found for all and dinner is waiter service, with five courses and several choices. Not only that, they offer Egyptian dishes such as spicy green molokhia soup and stuffed pigeon for dinner, and ful (fava beans) and tamiya (fried bean patties) for breakfast - rightly judging that their passengers are sophisticated enough to be interested in sampling local cuisine.


If you’ve never been on a Nile cruise, all this won’t sound revolutionary, but the norm is uninspired, international food and shared tables. Cabins are small, with minuscule shower closets - and five-star decor means smoked-glass mirrored ceilings, fake marble and gilt galore in public areas.
