Take in views of daily Egyptian life from your seat on the Aten (Sun) Deck. As you sail, sit back and let the rhythm of everyday life along the river wash over you. Witness Cairo’s graceful felucca sailboats gliding past—while on the opposite bank, a farmer tends to his cattle and children splash in the shallows nearby.
Experience your small ship sailing in and out of Egyptian ports from your private balcony on the Akhenaten Deck. Plus, your cabin is located with easy access to the Sun Deck, so you can make your way topside for panoramic views.
The Meritaten Deck also features a private balcony for two in each cabin, so you can take in views of the Nile from the upper deck. To cool off from the warmth of the Egyptian sun, head one level up to the covered open deck or the dipping pool.
On the Tutankhamun Deck, which also features a private balcony, you’re in close proximity to the reception area and bar & lounge. For relaxation, the lounge features inviting leather couches and soft chairs. When it’s time for meals, head down to our large, open-seating dining room.
The Amarna Deck features the open-seating restaurant, where you'll gather with your fellow travelers to dine on regional specialties and American favorites.
