About Port Said

Take any cruise with Egypt on the schedule and you are guaranteed a fascinating time, for this North African country is the portal to wonders dating from the dawn of civilisation as you will discover on one of our Port Said cruises.

Cruises to Port Said, at the head of the Suez Canal, take you one step closer to Cairo. Egypt's largest city is a maelstrom of traffic, glorious mosques and palaces and bazaars, where shopping is excellent - as long as you bargain, haggle and then haggle again!

Cairo also offers a fascinating selection of museums - the most famous being the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, which holds more than 100,000 relics and the Archaeological Museum, where you can gaze upon the face of Tutankhamun, the boy king.

Just outside the city is one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world - the Pyramids at Giza. Their sheer size, scale and age will amaze you, as will the enigmatic glance of their nearby guardian - the 65 ft high Sphinx.
