How safe is a Nile cruise around December?
December, particularly around Christmas, is high season for Nile Cruises, and because of Egypt’s ongoing political situation, there always concerns about safety. The cities and regions which a Nile cruises passes through are centered around tourism, however, so there’s a welcoming attitude towards visitors and no need to feel threatened. As with any major city though, you should always remain alert and aware of what is going on around you. It’s a good idea to keep in touch with Egypt’s political situation by registering for updates with the Foreign Office, so you’ll know if to tensions escalate to a point which might mean it’s unsafe for you to go on a Nile cruise.
