The question of clothes is not normally something to fuss over during a holiday. But a bit of attention to this aspect while taking a Nile Cruise will keep you comfortable throughout your journey.
The time of your holiday is important. Egypt is known to see searing hot summers. Especially in July and August, the sun can get up to scorching temperatures. It would therefore be a good idea to wear lightweight clothing and full sleeves shirts and blouses as well. Months like November and March are said to be salubrious and suited for a very pleasant cruise. Winter months can see some pretty cold temperatures in the night.
Depending on the luxury levels of the cruise you are taking, some of them may have a captain’s night where you may be required to wear some amount of formal clothing. Your ship may be able to provide you with this but in case you want to carry your suit along, then you could cater for the same.
Swim wear or beach wear like shorts and swimming suits are fine for lounging on board a ship during a cruise up and down the Nile. Most cruise ships also allow you to have lunch and breakfast dressed in this beach wear but for dinner, more formal clothing is encouraged. Egypt is a Muslim predominant country. It would be a good idea to dress conservatively especially when on land. Specifically when one is visiting temples, it is a very good idea to wear long pants rather than shorts and carry a scarf to cover your head too. The most comfortable clothes to wear would be those made of cool, flown cotton. Sensible shoes for trekking are also a good idea to carry along with your other footwear.
Packing the right amount and type of clothes can see you through all events of a Nile cruise – treks, formal occasions and normal days too.
It might be a smaller part of your holiday plans but paying attention to the clothes you carry for your Nile cruise will keep you comfortable and dressed appropriately at all times.
