Among Egypt’s priceless historical antiquities and endless attractions is the fascinating Nile River, one of the most popular and interesting sights for any traveller.
And amid a variety of choices to enjoy its sheer beauty is the renowned Sonesta Nile Cruises, which provide passengers with memorable, relaxing voyages between Luxor and Aswan onboard its three luxurious cruise ships: the Sonesta Moon Goddess, Sonesta Sun Goddess and Sonesta Nile Goddess.
For either four or six nights, guests can embark on an unforgettable cruise through mysterious Egypt and explore historic sites such as the Temple of Luxor, Kitchener’s Island, Temple of Horus, Valley of Kings & Queens and much more. And all this, while enjoying the exquisite facilities, comfort and personalised service provided by a dedicated crew.
All three cruise ships comprise spacious, fully-equipped guest cabins and suites, ranging from 50 to 65, and each featuring wide panoramic windows that allow for captivating views of the Nile, direct-dial phones, safety deposit boxes, mini bars, individual climate control televisions and bathrooms equipped with full-size bathtubs.
The Sonesta Sun Goddess includes a well-appointed meeting room of 70 sq m that can accommodate up to 16 guests, preceded by a lounge that can easily be converted into a theatre-style meeting space for up to 100 guests.
Onboard activities are endless with several outlets to choose from and daily entertainment, including a captain’s cocktail reception, Oriental ‘Galabeya’ party, Nubian folkloric show and themed nights.
There is also the opportunity to unwind at the pool on the sun-deck, treat yourself to a relaxing massage provided by a professional Romanian Masseuse or, for that matter, work out at the fitness centre. For those who want to try their luck, there’s the first Casino on the Nile onboard the Sonesta Moon Goddess.
The Sonesta Nile Cruises have bagged several awards, honours and certificates for their high level of safety and hygiene as well as the excellent quality of services provided, among these are the Certificate of Excellence from the ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) and the Polski Certificate whereby the ships were identified as ‘A1 River Service’.
Describing a cruise aboard the deluxe Sonesta vessels is, therefore, similar to a legendary five-storey world of comfort and luxury that guides its guests through a unique experience of witnessing Egypt’s 5,000-year history while enjoying its five-star services and elegance.
