If you're a solo traveler, you probably know that most travel companies require a single supplement – a surcharge of between 10% and 100% of the standard rate. However, O.A.T. travelers enjoy their own room or cabin at no extra cost, saving up to $3795 per person. And we currently have less than 10 single spaces available across all of our 2021 departures and 264 single spaces available across all of our 2022 departures.

The Upper Deck is the heart of our dahabeya experience, a place to relax beneath the twin lateen sails on comfortable sun loungers and sofas to view the unfolding scenery. Escape the sun in the air-conditioned indoor lounge (with bar service) or sip mint tea in the carpeted Arabic corner. Lunches are served around a large banquet table on the Upper Deck in the indoor lounge. Dinners are also served here.
The Lower Deck features a small library with board games and a satellite TV. Leading from the library are 8 cabins (approximately 150 square feet each) and 1 large, rear-facing suite measuring about 245 square feet that is available at additional cost. All cabins are air-conditioned and include one panoramic window for private views of the river while drifting along the Nile.
