The Sheraton had arranged a taxi for us to get to the fast shuttle boat to Hurghada. We had to go through security as if we were getting on a plane. The boat, run by International Fast Ferries(http://www.internationalfastferries.com/html/index.htmll) was modern and nice, but it rocked a fair bit. Ian was feeling pretty green by the end of the trip, and several other people on the boat were sick.Our hotel in Hurghada, the 4-room Sunshine Hotel, was back to our usual fare. (I.e. a complete dive). If we’d been staying more than one night, we would have switched. The guy who ran it was nice, but it just wasn’t clean, the beds were literally falling apart, and the bathrooms were scary (we don’t take showers in bathrooms where there is bare wiring exposed). Our guidebook described the hotel as "homey". We don’t want to see the author’s home.
