The 32-cabin Sanctuary Nile Adventurer has recommenced its luxurious four-day sailings along the Nile following a dramatic makeover unveiled late last month.
Decorated in a contemporary style, the elegant new Sanctuary Nile Adventurer design combines modern Egyptian culture with 7,000 years of heritage. After trips ashore to visit sacred sites with expert Egyptologists, guests can relax with refreshing cocktails in a private cabana or cool off in the pool as the sun sets.
Inside, the look is all stylish sophistication, with opulent fabrics and refined lighting that evoke Egypt’s ‘golden hour’. Lovingly crafted Caravanserai lamps with ornate cut-outs cast a patterned glow and a serene colour scheme – a blend of azure and warm sandstone with hints of softly burnished gold and bronze, cool blues and aquamarines, carefully selected antiques – enhance the ship’s sense of assured ambience.
Each Standard and Deluxe cabin features brass pendant lamps, a plush headboard and a private bath, while two Junior Suites offer spacious retreats, each complete with a new ‘floating’ vanity and a private dining space. The palatial Presidential Suites feature spectacular views from huge windows, their own private balconies plus refined living areas, while their new king-sized four-poster beds are the epitome of sumptuous indulgence.
The ship’s restaurant has also undergone a complete transformation, featuring a central display – all the better to showcase the cuisine of its award-winning chefs. Guests even have a chance to participate in an Egyptian cooking lesson.
The communal lounge features intricately patterned wall tiles, a dramatic bar, tasteful new fabrics and rugs, and once again, the warm glow of soft lighting. Internal pillars are decorated in silver to catch the light dancing across the surface, much like it does on the river outside.
Sanctuary Nile Adventurer also features a library that leads into a brand new spa, where a floating four-poster awaits, along with a soothing massage or an indulgent treatment.
The Sanctuary Nile Adventurer offers four-night cruises between Aswan and Luxor, operating both upstream (south) and downstream (north). In 2020, four-night cruises onboard the Sanctuary Nile Adventurer start from US$1,307 per person, twin share, including accommodation, all meals, mineral water, tea and coffee served during meal-times, all sightseeing, guiding and entrance fees.
