TRAVELINE Egypt has announced the inauguration of its exclusive Royal Nile Steam cruise, Misr, to cater to the leisure and MICE market. The boat took its maiden voyage late last year.
It has six types of cabins and suites, named Empire, Art Deco, Louis XV, Louis XVI and English and Ottoman cabins.
Misr was originally constructed in Preston by the British Royal Navy in 1918, implementing for the first time Stevenson Link reversing system for a vertical steam engine.
It was purchased and later converted into a luxury Nile steamer for Egypt’s King Farouk and according to records, it was the venue for the king’s birthday celebrations. The name Misr means Egypt and the decor reflects the fashion of the period, with each cabin has its own individual stylish decor.
