There used to ba a fair amount of tourism between Israel and Egypt and Jordan - part of the peace process after the 1976 truce (implemented by Jimmy Carter). But since the regime change in Egypt things have changed - however Abercrombie and Kent report more demand for Egypt lately - even adding extra cruises in 2015.

I really suggest you do it like this - plan to spend several days in Israel (Jerusalem/Dead Sea, etc), and then fly to Egypt and take a Nile cruise. If you can avoid Cairo, or limit it to one day to see the pyramids and Sphinx that would be fine, but the best of Egypt is upriver on the Nile - take a 7-day river cruise.
