We looked at the Med Feb 14 cruise on the Jade and then again again at the Mar 7 (both hitting Alexandria) because we have yet to see the pyramids and we declined because of the weather. Weather ok for Egypt but we like to not have to wear a jacket as we tour and Feb and Mar weather is just too cool. Price was right however. We have opted for May instead. YOu would not get a lot of use out of your balcony. My opinion.
