Day 8   

Abu Simbel, Egypt

After a final breakfast on board your ship, disembark and take a brief flight to Abu Simbel, then proceed directly to the temples. These magnificent structures, renowned for their four giant seated figures, were built in the 13th century BC by Ramses II and are thought to depict him and his queen, Nefertari. The colossal structures were dismantled and moved to this new location during construction of the Aswan High Dam, which created Lake Nasser, a major engineering feat. After exploring the temples on your own, check in on your second ship for your Lake Nasser cruise and enjoy the afternoon at leisure. Tonight, enjoy an onboard dinner, then relax or attend an optional sound and light show at the Abu Simbel temples. (B, L, D)
