Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Nile Sapphire is a comfortable and very well maintained boat which offers very good services and a successfully selected decoration, quite elegant, once you forget about the first impression of the 1970s style in the reception.

    Location 10.0 /10

    Departures from Luxor, Spring Tours quay near the Luxor dock (south of the city, after the Club Med Villa hotel); in Aswan, at the Misr Travel quay (opposite Egypt Air).

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    72 passenger cabins between the first and third decks. The classic furniture is new, in green and creamy tones. The carpeting is in very good condition. The great porthole is decorated with coloured glass. The corridors that lead there are faultless and match with the colour of the cabins. Nice old paintings on the walls. The cabins are large (226 square feet) with a nicely designed bathroom, a shower and a hair dryer. A TV set with a video system, individually controlled air conditioning. Telephone calls abroad can be made at the reception, where a safe is also available.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    Built in 1993 (overhauled in 1996), this ship is 239 feet long and 46 feet wide, having 5 decks, including the upper deck. The common parts are large (we should note the large lobby with its chandelier reminiscent of the 1970s). The modern and kitsch decoration of the lobby denotes with the rest of the boat's design, more traditional and harmonious, but the reception is unique and gives a true identity to the vessel. The panoramic bar and the restaurant (on the fourth deck) are really nice and the 2 shops are well-patronized. Maximum occupancy: 145 passengers.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The dining room has classic decor. The varied cuisine, international and oriental, is presented buffet-style, which does not exclude a service at table some evenings. You would appreciates the wide range of meat, fish and cheese and the soups for starters. Regular tea time at 5.00pm.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    The upper deck occupies the entire length of the boat. Very pleasant and well supplied with various amenities. We appreciated particularly the large round swimming pool, organised at several levels, the quality of towels and fitness equipment. Deckchairs. Barbecue.

      Completely renovated in July 2000, the Coral II is a boat without surprise that offers good classic performance. We like the promenade, a passageway leading to the swimming pool on the upper deck. A good quality ship with no surprises.

      The Beau Soleil impresses from your first step into the lobby... Pharaonic. A reception with columns, marble and glass, somewhere between the Empire and neo-Egyptian style. Further on, more light, in very bright large spaces, most of the cabins have large bay-windows. One of the newest boats in the fleet of Nile, perfect for a luxury cruise.

      The Nile Bride is a pleasant boat in classic style, which should, however, pay more attention to the development of its upper deck. The welcome and know-how of the team aboard, its kindness and availability are undeniable. The large bar with its piano area is truly appealing.

      The M / S Fleurette is a very small boat whose warm service and plenty of animation are its main assets. Moreover, its passengers enjoy a private pier in Luxor and Aswan. It could claim a 5 star category if some renovations and alterations were undertaken.
