8 Days Orient Star Dahabiya Nile Cruise

8 Days Orient Star Dahabiya Nile Cruise from Luxor to Aswan , an authentic Dahabiya from the late 18th and early 19th century served as the inspiration for the colonial-style hotel Nile Boat 8 Days. In addition, the centrepiece of this traditional two-masted sailing sailboat is the sundeck, which offers some cover.
On the other hand, it’s the perfect place to unwind while taking in the passing countryside from a wooden deck chair. Down below, there are four cabins, a suite, a nice sitting area, and a salon.
The cosy salon houses a modest library with books on the Nile and Egypt. With its comfortable sofas, it’s the perfect setting for relaxation.
And while telling stories, sharing experiences, reading a book, or playing a game of backgammon, sip on a Turkish coffee.
