A possible scenario?

I am Memnon, son of Mehnet, son of Ra. I am Reader of the Stars, Rider of the Wind and the Seas. I have determined to seek learning of other lands where ever they may be.
We travelled many days and nights by foot, to the headwaters of the Mighty River Nile and further, encountering strange people along the way, none dared approach us, such was the fierceness of our countenances and the brightness of our shield, the sharpness of our swords.
Near the land of the small people lay before us the endless sea, a vastness of which I have never seen before. I must conquer it as I have conquered others in the past.
I ordered that a ship be built, the largest ever seen by the eye of man, one to submit the mighty sea that lay before me. At the end of four moons it was done, built and victualled, ready for the longest voyage ever made by a man.
Consulting the Priest, I learn that the most auspicious direction to sail will be to the rising sun, following the land signs along the way.
The four seasons pass three times, and we have encountered many strange people in very unhospitable lands, but our food and water supplies are plentiful.
Twice more the seasons came and went, I fear we were approaching the end of the world as the mighty sea and the winds combined to put us to death. The stars had not been visible for many nights and were torn from our course, to one away from the Sun, we were thirsty and hungry for many days it was since we last saw land and our supplies are gone. The weather is very cold, worse than ever encountered.
Another moon past, we found ourselves blown onto a small island. The plants were strange but edible, the animals unobserved. We continue on the path set for us by Ra, to the setting sun and warmer climes.
And then, seven rotations of the seasons since we departed Egypt, a land is sighted, green and mountainous, I fear we have sailed in a circle to the green lands to the south of Egypt.
We spent two seasons living at the edge of the large green, almost impenetrable forest, hunting, fishing and building shelters, before marching inland for many, many days, until we encountered people who were unlike us in any way. The men were smaller than us with skin the colour of honey, as I had never seen before, the women likewise. All were naked, the men with painted faces and the feathers of birds in their hair. We were accepted into their community, we taught them how to make traps for animals and how to divert water from the streams to their crops. Such was their appreciation that items of gold were bestowed upon us.
And so it came to pass that we set about showing the strangers how to build a pyramid, for the honour of their Pharoah and their gods. It was completed upon five rotations of the seasons and many came from afar to view its magnificence.
With the help of the strangers, in my dying days, a city was built, a city to rival those of Egypt, complete with waterways and expanses of green crops. A wonder to behold. The men have taken local women to wife and their children are many.
And now my days are ending, in this strange land with its new stars and mystical people, and I leave as my legacy, pyramids now across the land in memory of Egypt and of the greatness we have created.
 
 (And that, feathers, is how it was done and by whomSmile)

It's not that I was born in Ireland,
It's the Ireland that was born in me.

Baloney.

Egyptians, river people, were pretty bad sailors, actually. That's why they contracted Phoenicians.

The OP is under the Alternative History heading, after all.

But could it really have happened like that?

Maybe the ships Captain was Phoenician. Maybe the builders/designers were Egyptian, or maybe they were aliens from space.

Phoenicians were mediocre sailors in comparison to real sailors... like the Polynesian and Austronesian peoples. Phoenicians navigated by day light following the coast. At night they put theirs ships on the beaches.... Please. There is no comparison.

So, you agree that the Mayan Temples were built by Egyptians?
