Dahabeya Nile Cruise / 8 Days – Aswan / Luxor Every Saturday

By Gate 2 Egypt Tours
The Sonesta Amirat Dahabiya Nile Cruise boat is a beautiful boat styled after the Dahabiyas that were sailing on the Nile at the turn of the century, but it features 5-Star amenities and all the luxury bells and whistles to ensure you can live in the lap of luxury from the moment you board in Aswan, to the moment you disembark in Luxor. Spend your days dining on fine meals; wander through ancient temples built by mighty pharaohs, and feel humbled as you stroll through a royal necropolis where the rich and powerful were laid to rest. A cruise on the Sonesta Amirat Dahabiya is a cruise you will simply never be able to forget. Our Sonesta Amirat Dahabiya Nile Cruise Departs from Aswan every Saturday

The cruise starts from either Luxor to Aswan or Aswan to Luxor. We sailed from Luxor to Aswan - flying to Luxor from Cairo and from Aswan to Cairo. It was a fantastic adventure!. The Dahabeya's are the only vessel that can stop and moor overnight along the Nile, other larger cruises are shorter as they must moor at certain stops that will accommodate their size. The Sonesta Amirat Dahabiya has 7 cabins and 2 suites at the back with open deck. We booked the regular cabin, which is really small and once on board we upgraded to the suite with deck. The addition price for that was about $300.00 per night. Very expensive but really worth it for us - we enjoyed it! The Dahaeya itself is quite old but in pretty good shape. We loved it - due to low tourism at this point in time we were the only couple on board so it was like having our own private Nile Yacht! Sailing from Luxor to Aswan is against the current and we did not have many sailing days as the wind was low so we were mostly towed by a small tug boat, but it was much quieter than the larger triple decker cruise ship that passed us by burning their smelly diesel. The food was amazing - breakfast includes fresh fruit, buns and pastries, made to order omelettes, ham, cereal, yogurt . Lunch, if you are on board is lighter with soups, sandwiches, salad etc. Supper is 3 courses, soup or salad, main entree could include chicken breast, steak, fresh fish, and desert. Meal are included but alcoholic beverages are not and they are expensive usually around $13.00USD per cocktail. Bring your own and keep it in your room. Our crew was amazing - Mahmood, the cruise director, Moody our bartender, Henny our cabin steward were all so wonderful to us! They moored on an island one night and hosted us with a barbeque on shore and entertained us with a little traditional Egyptian music and singing. Sitting on deck and cruising down the Nile was a once in a lifetime adventure. We started in Luxor touring the Karnak and Luxor Temples, the next day over to Necropolis of Thebes, Valley of the Kings, the Colossos of Memnon, and the Temple of Hatshepsut. Then sailed to Edfu via the Esna Lock which was so interesting - I've never gone through a lock. Then we visited the Ptolomaic Temple of Horus. So beautiful - it was saved from the rising flood waters!
Each day was a dream and it was so nice to come back to the Dahabeya after a long day and relax on deck and watch the sun set.
