      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 Champollion is one of the best boats that we had the pleasure of visiting on the Nile. The 50-cabin ex-Meridian boat has the benefit of having been entirely renovated in 2008, enabling it to offer guests a high-quality service in comfortable and spacious surroundings with simple decor. Fans of Upper Egypt can travel in style, (especially as none of the cabins are located near the engine) with exclusivity guaranteed by Vacances Transat.
