Royal Lotus

Ship Description

Egypt is a land of great contrasts. The bustling world city of Cairo, just a few miles away from small towns along the Nile. The ancient wonders of Giza and Luxor and the 20th-century masterwork of the Aswan Dam. See it all-gaze upon the Great Pyramids, the mysterious Sphinx, the mighty temples of Luxor and Karnak and the colossal statues of Rameses and Nefertari. Hear Nubian drums and shop in colorful souks. Enjoy the comfort and style of deluxe hotels and a Nile cruise ship the pharaohs could only dream of. Learned Egyptologists accompany you throughout your 9-day journey, enhancing your experience with background and context.

The M/S Royal Lotus is a floating luxury hotel with four decks. The 62 tastefully appointed and spacious cabins (22 sqm) offer every comfort and are located on the upper decks so guests on board are always guaranteed perfect views of the stunning landscape surrounding the Nile. For those in search of even more luxury, there are two Royal Suites (45 sqm) for the ultimate in comfort.

The main restaurant serves a variety of buffets and menus with Egyptian and international specialities, to satisfy even the most discerning palate. The elegant Salon Deck with its panoramic windows comprises a lounge, bar and dance floor. The Sun Deck includes a swimming pool, whirlpool, pool bar and a canopied area. An internet corner and a fitness centre complement the on-board facilities.

There is also a fully equipped fitness room, bridge tables for card enthusiasts in the Observation Bar, and a dance floor in the Crescent Bar and Lounge. The Royal Lotus accommodates 124 passengers. Voltage is 220V so you will need an electric adapter to plug in a curling iron, electric razor, or camera battery re-charger.
