    Belly Dance: Belly Dancing show

    by Diana75 Updated Jul 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As other attractions of Cairo and Egypt in general, a belly dancing show is something that cannot be missed.

    In specific restaurants is something that comes with the menu, but that is just an usual show for the tourists.

    A real belly dancing show, the best one, is to be seen only in a couple of places in Cairo and is relatively expesive.

    Nile Hilton Casino.: Belly Dancing Shows

    by DunaKal Updated Aug 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are really intrestead in belly dancing,Egypt is the home!!!!!
    There are many casinos with belly dancers shows mainly located at AL Haram street,(kinda cheap)but personally I have never been there.It opens from 3 am til 12 p.m next day.(OMG)
    There are 3 most famous belly dancers in Egypt(Dina,Fifi Abdu&Lucy)they are the top.
    But they only preform at 5 star hotels.
    Either Nile Hilton,Cairo Sheriton,or Ramsis Hilton.
    check with those hotels before going because programmes can be changed.

    There are also many other non-Egyptian belly dancers,who are mainly from Eastren Europe or Russia.

    Dress Code: NO jeans are allowed in the 5 star hotle casinos,neck tie is also required.

    On board Aquarius ship: A night to remember- Part 1

    by ifam Written May 3, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Belly dance ....this is what i have been planning to see all this while..and yessss finally i get to see it ! Prior bookings need to be made, wear formal dress, ladies...all eyes on you so dress to kill is ok hahahah anyway i always dress sensibly..dont want anyone to stare too much ( a bit is ok hehe). For tourist, it can cost you about 20 usd, but for local i heard its only 11 usd including buffet dinner but not including drinks. If i am not mistaken the show starts at 8pm and it will be cruising the nile river on and off while we can see the whole view from the top of this 3 deck ship. Great experience. Dont miss it.

    Dress Code: I would suggest casual smart or formal attire

    o la la...i cant do that.... hmm i can do this ...huhh..not me, syakira can... a clown mimicking some moves...

    Belly Dance: Belly dancing boats

    by thetababy Written Jan 5, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The hotel were useless and wouldnt recommend a good place for bellydancing - the guide book recommended the Palmyra, but in the end we didnt go.

    We ended up on a Nile cruise and they offered dinner and music and a belly dancer. Ask in your hotel but there was one of several that left from in front of the Sheraton, and another one 2 bridges down the river on the other side in front of the opera house, where the feluucas are. Price ranged from 250LE to 400LE.

    The dancer was good enough and I was unfortunate enough to be forced to dance with her. I didnt buy the 25LE photo...

    Bear in mind the 22 tax added to everything!

    Dress Code: I wore jeans and sneakers, as did my friends. No problems...
    There were egyptians in evening dresses and furs and other things like that, so if you enjoy dresisng up, this is the time and place to do it.

    Some people dressed up but no one made us feel bad for not doing so. Casual/formal is probably OK.

    Belly Dance: Nile Maxim - by Mariott Hotel at Zamlak

    by seasonedveteran Written Apr 21, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although touristy, many egyptians themselves would love to see it if i wasnt a tad expensive (20 euros). For that money though, you get to accomplish your goal of boating the nile, a fantastic meal with salad bar, main course, and desserts. Eat your heat out, and then enjoy the exciting show packed with bellly dancing, traditional egyptian whirling durvish, and bayonet bearing team dancing synchronised, etc.

    Take a break and step outside on the rails, and enjoy the nile breeze, seeing Cairo from a candid perspective of the water, where it suddenly becomes for the first time peaceful and serene. The cairo skyline and waterfront is absolutely picturesque. Watch the small boat pass by blaring Hakim obnoxiously loud.

    The interior is exquisitely decorated. Fit for a king, and then you are sad to return back to land and leave the entertainment, the food and most importantly, the Great Nile river.

    # Time of Cruises: 7 30 PM and 9 30 PM and the cruise takes 2 hours more or less
    # Telephone: 02/7388888
    # Prices: 190 pounds as a minimum charge per person.

    Dress Code: anything, and in fact encourage to be a tourist, which is a relief in cairo; the most untouristy tourist spot in the world! youll stand out like a sore thumb

    Belly Dance: Pharaoh (Floating Restaurant)

    by daryll Written May 22, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wow..thats my first impression, on board on Pharaohs, veneered everything in gold, looks so opulent and i felt like a king. Once floating cruise start to board, food is ready to serve, with a variety of egyptian food and of course accompanied with famous BELLY DANCING.

    If this is your first trip to Cairo makesure you fill your nightlife with one of the belly dancing and dinner cruise. Most memorable trip.

    Belly Dance: Riverboat Cruise on the Nile

    by ishi01 Written Oct 14, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was a cruise down the Nile with dinner cum show. When the boat left the pier a 5 piece band entertained with modern western music. But as we travel down the Nile, the traditional entourage came with drums and finger cybals, etc - and there she was. Beautiful, entertaining and talented. Needless to say, none of us could remember if the food was good or not. We certainly went away entertained.

    Dress Code: Casual
