even during the height of the recent trouble when Cairo was literally burning with revolution, Sharm el Sheikh remained calm. The British government made a point at that time of excluding Sharm' from its advice to not to travel to Egypt (it is a very long way from Cairo).
Of course the overall situation in Egypt has improved. Just this weekend there was the first free vote in 50 years on constitutional changes.
As I said in a previous post on Answers: on a scale of 1 to 10 standing in Tahrir Square at 3am wearing an "I heart Mubarak" t-shirt is a 10, lying on a banana lounge in Sharm is a 2. I think you have more reason to be worried about sharks than protests.
But, having said that.... do keep an eye on the news. There is after all a revolution underway and they are by their nature unpredictable.
enjoy the break.
