Egypt Ports

Has anyone done Egypt ports since the Israeli conflict started?  Did you use the ship's excursion or private excursions?  I'm asking because I am currently booked on the ship's 2 day Luxor for $1600 but there are much cheaper options out there.  I'd like to know if anyone feels it is safe to travel in the area outside of ship's tours.

I am currently on the Encore from Athens to Dubai with a stop (one day) for Luxor on November 27.  Most seemed to be doing the ship excursions due to the logistical challenges of Luxor in one day.  However, there were no issues or concerns with those who traveled independently.  I did one of the ship tours, but talked with others who made private arrangements. Very safe.  The war is far away from here, but circumstances can change.

Thanks.  I am still deciding but that's good to hear.  For now I'm scheduled on the ship's tour, but the price is outrageous for what they are offering.  I am doing the far more expensive Petra tour with the ship because it is only one day and I don't want to worry about getting back to the ship in time.
