    Location 10.0 /10

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    The cabins have nothing in common with what one usually finds on the Nile: There are 49 deluxe cabins (12 of which have a double bed), 1 royal suite and 9 presidential suites. The least one can say is that the Sonesta Saint Georges sets very high standards. All cabins include a plasma-screen TV, coffee and tea making facilities, slippers and bathrobes with the name of the boat embroidered on them. The first category of cabin, which one would normally compare with standard cabins, offers pure satisfaction and optimal comfort. Even the entrance has a door bell and two lights, which passengers use to indicate whether they wish to be disturbed or not, or if they want their cabin cleaned. Truly incredible. Once inside, there are more surprises awaiting passengers. Particularly spacious and fitted with a parquet floor, the cabins stand out for the lighting and comfort they provide. The interior is tasteful and the style is pleasant and classical. As far as cleanliness is concerned, everything is impeccable. It is hard to top this. As for furniture, most of the deluxe cabins include two single beds (only 12 have a large double bed). The cotton bedding is of good quality, the majestic headboard is decorated with a nice fresco, the furniture is made of wood and there are white double curtains. The bathroom is equally surprising. It includes a bathtub with a shower, massage jets, and a wooden sink that matches the floor. It is spacious and clean and provides welcome toiletries and towels. The room also has a mini bar and a safe.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The Sonesta Saint Georges boasts an entrance hall that would not look out of place in a palace, a monumental reception area, abundant gilding and a rather showy and kitsch style that is hard to miss. However, one quickly gets used to it. The crew is welcoming, and there are numerous quality services on offer. As passengers discover the boat, they realize that nothing is lacking: the restaurant is amazing and offers a wide range of dishes in the form of a buffet; there are three bars, one of which affords a panoramic view of the Nile; a proper fitness centre and a massage parlour with Turkish baths, a sauna (extra charge) and a hairdresser. Finally, the upper deck is particularly pleasant, as are the ultra comfortable cabins. In short, the Sonesta Saint Georges does not have the most tasteful of interiors but the comfort on board and the level of service make for one of the best Nile cruises there is.

    Food and drink 9.70 /10

    The best restaurant on the Nile is on board the Sonesta Saint Georges! The food is fresh, varied and of exceptional quality. The buffet was a highly unexpected surprise and nearly impossible to resist; the choice of dishes is incredible and their presentation makes them all the more mouth-watering. The starters, main courses and deserts are beautifully presented and you'll have a hard time restraining yourself, whatever your preference may be: roast beef, steak, chicken, fish, veal, artichokes, potatoes, rice, soup... Some of the dishes are prepared in show-cooking mode. An incredible pastries' and fruit buffet is also on offer. The room is luminous and spacious enough not to feel cramped, and the table layout provides a certain degree of privacy. Half-board on board, with breakfast and lunch served in the form of a buffet. You'll have to pay an extra charge for the a la carte dinner.

    Beach 9.20 /10

    The upper deck is very enjoyable and one of the strong points of the ship. Covered in pristine synthetic lawn, it includes a large and pleasant swimming pool with water hoses. The cushioned deck chairs placed around the pool are made of teak. Nothing to complain about in terms of the equipment. Towels are provided for passengers and the deck also boasts a bar, which provides the setting for the barbecue buffet dinner held twice a week.

    To know

    The Sonesta Saint Georges ship and the hotel that bears the same name in Luxor are both managed by the same owner. There are three entertainment evenings put on every week: a fancy dress party, an oriental dance show and a Nubian show.

      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 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.
