Imagine sailing down the Nile on a magical Sailing ship that is beautifully crafted twin masted sailing ships. You always felt very smug and proud of yourselves that you had made that choice instead of the every time big cruise ship. Sitting out on the deck and enjoying amazing views whilst cruising leisurely down the banks of the Nile. Dahabeya translated means Golden Boat in Egyptian. They were originally used by kings to travel on the Nile. It is 38m long and has 6 en-suite cabins, a very large Suite complete with its own terrace. There is also a spacious salon lounge with a bar and a 29m sundeck. Unlike cruise ships, dahabiyas can berth at any suitable place on the banks of the Nile. This allows for a more flexible itinerary and a more enjoyable exploration of the river. Dahabyea has many transcriptions some write it as dahabeah or dahabiah or dahabiyah or Dahabiya or Dahabeya and Dahabia but at the end, they all refer to the small boat that is sailing in the River Nile, going by the wind only! imitating Kings and Queens from the past, we are here to let you feel as if you are one of them.
Guests will be able to enjoy fabulous European and Egyptian cuisine. It is a very romantic ship in a romantic setting. Guests will actually be able to reach down and touch the Nile as they sail in a wonderful tranquil silence and see sights that haven't changed for a few thousand years - yet with all the modern comforts that first-class travel offers. The cruises are between Luxor and Aswan and will call at all the tourist highlights, such as Esna, Edfu, and Kom Ombo as well as some of the more unusual smaller villages that the larger ships can't access like the Selsila Temple.
