The Moon Dance's maiden voyage wasn't that long ago. It set off on the 22nd of September, 2008. The ship is very well kept and looks brand new. The lobby area is astounding: It is decorated in a modern fashion but manages to remain classy. Leather seats, black glossy walls, the large glass stairway highlighted by artificial lighting; everything has been cleverly thought out, down to the very last detail. Every item is important and nothing has been left to chance. The Moon Dance boasts an extravagant style. Excess is probably the best word to describe this boat, which is the remarkable design of a French architect. The boat is very chic, but lacks a bit of light in some areas, which is largely due to the choice of colours that contribute to darken the setting. Despite this, you'll feel very comfortable here. You'll appreciate the comfort luxury services. The restaurant also boasts a fashionable interior and provides a very pleasant setting. Plus the tables are nicely spaced out so you won't be "disturbed" by your fellow diners. Black and white are the colours of choice here: white for the parquet and tables, which are perfectly set, and black for the leather seats and contemporary style wall lights. Lighting fixtures have also been installed on the four main columns, providing the place with some degree of intimacy. On the upper decks, there is a "Spa" where you'll be welcomed by Cathy, from France, who uses her twenty years of experience to provide a first class treatment. She is dedicated and makes every effort to cater to the needs of passengers who are looking for some well-being. You can clearly see that she loves her job. Various types of massages and a menu of treatments (hydrating, anti-ageing, rejuvenating...) catering to every need are available to both men and women. The booths are pleasant, well-furnished and equipped with top-notch devices that may be used to eliminate tenacious cellulite and to "regenerate" the face, if the anti-ageing treatment is what you are after, for example. Also for the well-being of passengers, there is a fitness centre on the other side of the stairway leading out of the massage parlour. Its walls are adorned with plasma-screen TVs, there are fitness machines in good condition and the room is enjoyable, despite the rather limited number of machines, for lack of available space... Finally, when compared with the rest of the ship, the top deck is slightly disappointing. Some of the equipment could be changed (floorboards, deck-chairs, mattresses). However, the deck is very enjoyable, especially in the evenings. The bar is all lit-up and you'll have a hard time drawing yourself away from the spectacular view of the Nile.
