      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.

      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.
