Much excitement as we awake to be in Safaga Egypt! Today we journey to Luxor to see the Valley of the King and the Luxor Temple. We have a 3 1/2 hour coach journey to get there which will be of great interest also. There are over 100 buses lined up outside for about half a dozen different excursions - about 33 of them doing what we are doing. We have to travel in convoy in Egypt with police protection and an armed security guard on each bus. We have a very quick brekky ...

After arriving at the Port of Safaga at 8:34 p.m. after a 14-hour tour of Luxor, I reboarded Voyager of the Seas and headed straight to my cabin for a much-needed shower. I met back with David at 9:10 and we headed up to the dinner buffet. As were eating, I noticed three trailers full of bundles of stuff wrapped in blue and white tarps dropped on the pier 11 stories below. The scene that played out for the next hour and a half was like watching a herd of arts attack of a ...
