We cruised down the Nile on the Alyssa for a week over Christmas. The ship is extremely comfortable and well managed, the staff are friendly and always willing to go out of their way to help. The food is also of an excellent standard. Only the spa on board was a little lacklustre - everything worked and was clean but the range of treatments was limited and no doors on treatment rooms meant that people would be wandering in whilst you were having a massage. However, it was not particularly busy and it was great to sit in the sauna and watch the sunset whilst cruising along. During our stay the ship always docked near the centre of town within easy walking distance of the souk, museums and restaurants. The pace of the itinerary was just right and the evening entertainment was pithed just right. The facilities on board are very much aimed at adults and there were very few young children on board. I would highly recommend this ship to anyone looking for a memorable and relaxing journey in comfort.

We stayed on the LTI Alyssa ship for a Nile cruise December 2007 and we had an excellent holiday. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you, the ship is spacious and clean, food excellent. The trips were well organised, excellent and very interesting. Overall we rated this holiday very highly and were looked after extremely well. BUT BE WARNED - Do not pay for your trips with any form of credit or debit cards and do not hand over cash without getting a reciept. We paid by credit card for trips to the Egyptologist, which seemed the normal process and on returning to England, found that an extra 253 had been added without authorisation. We are currently waiting while Medhotels investigate this serious issue but I would urge you not to use credit/debit cards. Pay for your trips at the ship's reception and gain the correct receipts. For this reason I have rated the service as terrible. One other pointer - check your receipts reflect what you have purchased, especially the totals.

Cruised on Alyssa late September 2007, the weather was great, food on board excellent but not many chips on the menu. This may be due to there only being 5 British on board this turned out not to be a bad thing as some of the other boats seemed like a floating Blackpool. The none inclusive trip to Abu Simmble was a very long drive by coach and a 3am wake up call due to the time the convoy leaves you may want to consider flying if the budget permits. Ali our guide with Med Hotels knew his stuff but tended to go into things a bit to deeply. I hinted but didn't have the heart to tell him standing in the sun for half an hour as he described each and every Hieroglyphic was a bit much. The ship was full board but the soft drinks are only given with your meals you have to buy them any other time which adds up to a hefty sum over 7 days. I didn't have a problem with buying alcoholic drinks as I expected this.
