- Set sail on a majestic experience -
After a dramatic transformation, the Sanctuary Nile Adventurer is now setting off on luxurious 4-day cruises along this epic river. With only 32 cabins, this exclusive ship offers an intimate yet truly magnificent setting for your Egyptian adventure.
“I am more proud than ever to welcome guests onboard to experience our warm hospitality and exquisite ambiance on the quintessential Nile adventure. After 27 years, I still feel a thrill when we glide past an ancient temple at sunset” said Adel Fathy, Boat Manager.
Decked out in glory
One of National Geographic's “journeys of a lifetime” is now more luxurious than ever. The transformed ship feels bright and inviting, with every detail attended to, from the gleaming teak of the sundeck to the hushed elegance of the new spa. After trips ashore to visit sacred sites with expert Egyptologists, relax with refreshing cocktails in a private cabana or cool off in the perfectly glorious pool as the sun sets behind yet another picture-perfect temple.
Stunning social spaces
Inside, the look is stylish sophistication, with opulent fabrics and refined lighting that evokes the ‘golden hour’. The serene colours echo the view outside, warm sandstone, softly burnished bronze and cool blues and aquamarines. Subtle patterns and carefully selected antiques enhance the ambience.
Spacious and special
The new-look cabins and suites are havens of relaxation. Stretch out as the landscape glides past in cinematic splendour. Every cabin feels extra-special, with plush linens, private baths and five-star amenities. We’ve given special attention to the subtle lighting and tasteful touches.
Reserve one of the two spacious Junior Suites, and enjoy your own private dining area. Or upgrade to a palatial Presidential Suite, with elegant living and dining spaces, plus your own private balcony – the ultimate indulgence for a once-in-a-lifetime Nile experience.
Savour the surroundings
The reinvented restaurant now features a live cooking area for the award-winning chefs. The effect is stunning, and so are the views. It’s the perfect setting for gourmet meals, a special gala evening and an Egyptian cooking lesson, so you can savour the flavours when you return home.
Privacy and pampering
The Sanctuary Nile Adventurer is an intimate ship, with cosy nooks for those seeking extra serenity, such as the luxurious new spa for soothing massages or indulgent treatments.
Attention to detail makes all the difference, both onboard and when you venture ashore. You will visit ancient sites and temples, including the striking Temple of Karnak and the Temple of Luxor, with its perfectly preserved hieroglyphics. You’ll explore alongside an expert Egyptologist, who enriches the experience with knowledge and passion. You’ll tour the Valley of the Kings and (naturally) the Valley of the Queens, as well as the Philae Temple on the Island of Agilika, the Temple of Khnum, the Temple of Kom Ombo and the Temple of Horus. You can even take a memorable ride on a white-sailed felucca, a traditional wooden sailing boat.
