Firs Timer.... Anyone else going on the Nile Cruise?!

Hi all, 

 I've just booked my first solo trip, 26th Nov - woop woop! Although extremely excited I am nervous about going on my own and am aware that not everyone is travelling solo but would rather do a group than do it alone!

 Is anyone else going on this trip? Or has anyone been? I'm feeling ok about the trip itself it's all the airport, paperwork, luggage type things that I get worried about. Until now... i've has someone else taking charge of all that... I just follow!

Thank you for the advice, i'll do that. I've never even been to Heathrow... always Gatwick, so thats a great start for someone who's never managed an airport by herself! I'm sure it will all be fine....!?!

 I think it is terminal 5.... the number in brackets with the flight details. I'm told this is the new terminal but I wouldnt know for sure.

 2 weeks to go!

Ah yes, 5 it is. Not seen Heathrow in a few years and T5 was being built back then. I am told it is ratehr good. And just about everyone I saw at a party on Saturday spoke well of Egypt too.


Thanks for the airport advice.... all sorted now! Phew! Since i'll be checking in online, does that mean we can bag drop at anytime or do we have to wait for the check-in times to open?

I cant recall going to Heathrow at all so should be interesting! I've been to Gatwick everytime so far... not on purpose, just luck of the draw!

I've done the beach holiday in Sharm earlier this year and loved it so really looking forward to seeing the rest of the country!

Not long now......!

HI Rach how are you? I just came from my trip to the Nile cruise, you don't have to worry about anything, the staff working on this trip are very professional and there will be there to help you. Nile cruise is the best trip to discover Egypt.

We were 14 people on the group and 4 of them were travelling solo, we were like small family. Luggage type i took a big one and i had not problem.. even on the sleeping train you can have it inside the cabin and the cabins on the Nile cruise are very spacious. If you got more questions about this trips i'm here to help you. Some of us posted our review about this trip, take a look maybe you will have more answers about what you need to know... 

Enjoy your trip 

Hi All who are going to the Nile trip (26th nov) .
