Orient Star Dahabiya Nile Cruise 5 Days

Orient Star Dahabiya Nile Boat 5 Days is a colonial-style hotel that was modeled after a genuine Dahabiya from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The sundeck with partial shade is the focal point of this classic two-masted sailing vessel. On the other hand, it’s the ideal spot for relaxing in a wooden deck chair while observing the passing scenery. There are four cabins, one suite, a lovely sitting space, and a salon down below. A small library with literature about the Nile and Egypt is located in the comfortable salon. It’s the ideal environment to unwind with its cozy sofas. In addition, enjoy a Turkish coffee while exchanging tales, exchanging experiences, reading a book, or playing a game of backgammon.
