Never been this trip up

p.147-
"That is to say, I was in Cairo. I've never been this trip up the Nile before."
"You came over on the Carmanic, I believe - at least so Madame Doyle was telling me."
===

Do the red words mean that during this trip he has not been to the Nile but before this trip he had?
