Nesma Nile Cruise

 Nesma is a word derived from the Arabic for breath of life and a name frequently given to girls. Nessim is the masculine version of the name, and refers to the soft, fresh breeze that visits Egypt each spring. Since the pharaonic era, a special feast called Sham el-Nessim (smell the breez) celebrated the fragrant scents of springtime and the sense of renewal the season brings. Sham el-Nessim remains a national holiday, a time when Egyptians take boat trips on the Nile or picnic on its banks. We named our ship in honor of this age-old tradition, and of the gentle winds that fill our sails as we travel on Egypt life-giving waters.

Onboard the Nesma Nile Cruise you may choose from six delightful cabins, each named for a different wind pattern.
 


Booking Nesma Nile Cruise will allow you to Discover the way of Ancient Egyptians Life.

 

Booking Nesma Nile Cruise giving you the experince of the following

Trade Winds
These great air currents circulate the earth equator and form the prevailing winds of the tropics. The trade winds are known for the consistency of their speed and direction; ships used them to swiftly sail the seas, trading goods along the way. Their name comes from the old English usage of the word trade which meant path or track. To say the wind blows trade meant to stay on track, which is what these reliable, beneficial winds have helped sailors to do since the dawn of navigation.

Mistral
This cold, dry wind accumulates over the Alps then blows hard through the mountains of the Rhone Valley all the way to the coasts of Southern France . The mistral is known for the brilliant sunshine it brings to the Riviera , along with a bracing crystalline cool. The Romans called this wind magistralis or masterful in respect of the turbulence it may create at sea.

 

Zephyr
The Zephyr wafts across the Mediterranean around the time of the summer solstice. Its name comes from the ancient Greek word meaning light and beneficial. Zephyrus was the Greek god of the west wind and his memory lives on in this gentle, warm breeze. On the Mediterranean coast near Alexandria , a promontory was once called Zephyrium, because it caught the Zephyr winds.

 

Monsoon
The Arabic word for season (mausem) gives these fast, strong, rain-bearing winds their name. The monsoon refers to the seasonal reversal of the wind direction along the coasts of the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea . For half the year it blows from the southeast before switching to move northeast. Arabian sailors knew the monsoon winds well, as they used them to sail to East Africa and the Far East trading spices, dates, rice and silk, while spreading their culture and religion to dozens of ports of call.

 

Fremantle Doctor
Wind and kite surfers are not the only ones who love the Fremantle Doctor. This cooling sea breeze blows over south-western Australian and is one of the most consistent winds in the world. Each day during the parched summer months between noon until 3pm , the Fremantle brings relief to coastal inhabitants, earning its nickname of doctor. The wind can penetrate as much as a hundred kilometers inland, lowering temperatures several degrees.


Levante
The Levante takes its name from the Spanish word for east which is where the wind was thought to originate. It actually begins in the Central Mediterranean and blows westwards reaching its greatest strength as it passes through the Straits of Gibraltar. The Levante is a warm, moist wind of varying intensity that blows most frequently between February- May, and October- December.
