The Sonesta Dahabiya – the Amirat was launched in February 2009 – offers a cruise experience like no other on the Nile. It is intended to take you back in time to a gentler, more gracious era on the Nile during your 7-night cruise between Luxor and Aswan. Facilities include 5 cabins and 2 suites, open-air oriental-style Jacuzzi, spacious sundeck and a stylish common lounge. All cabin accommodations are full board and feature private direct-dial telephones, individual climate control, hairdryers, mini-bar, safe deposit boxes, plasma televisions and movie channels. The suites each offer a private terrace. Daily guided excursions are offered to renowned Egyptian temples, tombs and ruins along the Nile. As a member of the Sonesta fleet of deluxe-service Nile cruisers, this small cruise boat will combine comfort and beauty in an inspiring way, offering a spectacular opportunity for an extended family or small group to discover the Nile on a private cruise. Highlights of a Nile Cruise include the Karnak Temple, one of the largest temples in the world, the extraordinary Luxor Temple, Thebes and the Valley of the Kings, the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut and the Valley of the Queens, the well preserved Edfu Temple, Esna Temple and Kom Ombu Temple, the twin temples of Abu Simbel and the romantic island Temple of Isis at Philae.
