CRUISE 2000 - CAIRO 1
This was an early start. We docked in Egypt at Port Said which lies at the head of the Suez Canal. This was an exciting moment as students realised their wish to travel to Africa. After breakfast we disembarked to join our coach for the journey through the Sahara Desert to our destination, Cairo. Firstly we visited the Muhammed Ali mosque which stands on the site of the former fortress of Saladin. From here we enjoyed spectacular panoramic views of Cairo, home to some 15 million people. From here we caught our first glimpse of the Pyramids of Giza over 15 miles in the distance.
After the mosque we travelled to the city centre to the Cairo Museum to view the Tutankhamun treasures. We completed the day with a visit to Giza to stand amongst the great pyramids of Cheops,Chefrun and Mycerinus. We took our photo of the Sphinx before we boarded our coach for the journey back to the ship which was now berthed in Alexandria.
