AmaWaterways has temporarily suspended its optional 4-night post-cruise land package in Israel. Guests with the post-cruise Israel package scheduled to depart on Secrets of Egypt & the Nile itinerary starting in Cairo through December 31, 2024 will be refunded for the Israel land portion as well as the Cairo to Tel Aviv airfare. Guests on these impacted departures should contact their travel advisor or airline (if flights were booked directly with the airline) to review change fees that may be applicable to their return international flights.

There are no other changes to any other Egypt river cruise or associated land packages.
