The cruise will sail between Luxor* and Aswan* with two excursions included in the price. It will set sail aboard newly-renovated TUI Al Horeya*, the fourth member of TUI's river fleet, on an adults-only, all-inclusive basis with cabins for solo travellers too.

The cruise will operate from 7 November 2024 until 24 April 2025 with flights departing on Thursdays from both London Gatwick and Manchester.

Chris Hackney, Managing Director of Cruise TUI UK and Ireland said: "TUI River Cruises is going from strength to strength, and we are so excited to introduce this latest offering on the Nile which we are confident our customers will love.

"A cruise along the Nile offers a serene and unforgettable experience with lush landscapes, traditional villages, and other iconic landmarks such as the Luxor and Edfu Temples.

"With year-round sunshine, Egypt is the perfect destination for exploring ancient history and allowing guests to immerse themselves in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

"The name TUI Al Horeya was chosen to ensure we kept local connection to Egypt, as it is our only TUI river cruise ship which will stay in the one country. TUI Al Horeya in Arabic means 'freedom', signifying the freedom the water brings to explore which is a great representation of what river cruising is all about."
