On 31 December 1996, I ushered in the new year on the Nile River. The double decker cruise boat set off from the pier at 7.30 pm. Dinner was an elaborate buffet spread of Western and Egyptian fare. The mood was festive as wine flowed freely and tourists were upbeat and in a party mood. There was a live band to set the mood in full swing followed by sensual belly dancing. At the stroke of midnight, everybody was jubilant as the boat started to pull up towards the pier.

Dress Code: Smart casual. As it was New Year's Eve, many tourists wore jacket and tie and evening gown.
Reservations are recommended.

Directions: Most travel agencies in Cairo will be able to arrange for dinner cruises on the Nile.
Theme: Live Music

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
