Just to answer your posted question - sleeper trains leave Giza station at 8.00pm and 9.10 pm... while most cruise boats leave Aswan on Fridays there are some Wednesday boats - I will need to check further if there are berths available as this is not very far away :-) I will get back to you ASAP on the rest of your program.

Dear Sir,

Kindly note we are only making programms for the western desert safari in city called Siwa, if you are intersted please advice as soon as possible.
your quesation about the december this month all train ticket its full its high seasone the tourist please this time booking your ticket before coming the better for you to book you trip Now during this month ........ the time sleeping train we have three kind of sleeeping train with different number and with different time the first train leave 8,30 pm and aother one leave 8.55.another one leave 9pm please book now every thing the hotel and ticket its full book this time.
According to this website - Luxor - Aswan the times are different to those given in this answer. A new company took over the service in early 2010. But it can indeed be difficult to get tickets at this time of the year.
