I cannot say enough good things about our group’s experience on the Sonesta Amirat Dahabiya Nile Cruise. This trip was a true adventure from start to finish.

The crew went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and pampered. They were always ready to assist with a smile. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, sharing fascinating insights about Egypt’s history and culture.

Exploring the temples and tombs along the Nile was like stepping back in time. The sights and stories were mind-blowing. And returning to the cruise after each excursion to a comfortable cabin and delicious meal made the whole experience even better.

I’ve traveled quite a bit, but this cruise stands out as one of my all-time favorites. Don’t miss the chance to embark on this incredible journey!

Solo Traveller

I recently embarked on the Sonesta Amirat Dahabiya Nile Cruise as a solo traveler, and it was an absolutely magical experience. From the moment I stepped on board, I was greeted with warmth and hospitality. The crew went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and ensure I had everything I needed.

The cruise itself was a journey through history. The sights along the Nile were breathtaking, and our guide, Ahmed, was incredibly knowledgeable, providing fascinating insights into Egypt’s rich history. The food on board was delectable, and I looked forward to every meal. I also appreciated the smaller group size, which allowed for a more intimate and personalized experience.

Overall, I can’t recommend the Sonesta Amirat Dahabiya Nile Cruise enough. It’s the perfect way to explore the wonders of Egypt while enjoying top-notch service and comfort.
