Oberoi Zahra is where great food meets the Nile. Each meal was a culinary adventure, a carefully chosen mix of tastes that went together perfectly. The places on board were even better than I thought, making this cruise a real treat for the senses.

The best way to see the Nile is on an Oberoi Zahra Nile Cruise. The ship is very fancy, the food and the staff are great. I loved the daily trips to see old Egyptian tombs and temples, and the Egyptologist on board knew a lot about the subject. I highly recommend the Oberoi Zahra Nile Cruise to anyone who wants a trip they will never forget.

My wife and I booked the Oberoi Zahra Nile Cruise, the best choice we’ve ever made. The cruise was even better than we had hoped. The food was wonderful, the staff was friendly, and the ship was beautiful. The daily trips to old Egyptian temples and tombs were our favorite parts. The Oberoi Zahra Nile Cruise is the most luxurious way to see the sights of ancient Egypt.
