Sun Boat IV
Furnished in a contemporary style with luxurious teak flooring and local textiles, the Sun Boat IV is one of the most stylish vessels on the Nile. There are 36 standard cabins, two presidential suites and two royal suites each with floor to ceiling windows from which to enjoy the passing views of life on the river.
Itineraries range from three to seven night explorations between Aswan and Luxor with the option to visit the lesser known site of Dendarah north of Luxor. Dendarah is known for its beautiful Temple of Hathor. The temple is a shrine to the Goddess of Beauty with a network of underground passages and a relief of Queen Cleopatra IV and her son, Caesarian. Whether you opt to sail for three or seven nights, choosing the Sun Boat IV guarantees some of the best Egyptologist guides in the country to impart their profound knowledge and passion. Guides are available for informal lectures on board as well as daily explorations on land.
The boat is air conditioned throughout with plenty of calm and quiet spaces to relax from an outdoor bar on the lower deck to a refreshing plunge pool on the upper deck. The food is exceptional and everything is prepared in the kitchen with mineral water. There is also the option to add an inclusive drinks supplement so there is no need to sign for wine, beer or soft drinks.
