Any number of river cruisers make their way along the timeless Nile, but none come close to Sanctuary’s Nile Adventurer for sheer luxury. There are just 32 air-conditioned cabins, as elegantly kitted out as any five-star hotel room, with ever-present, constantly changing views. The public spaces are just as delightful, with inviting furniture and decorated with artefacts that reflect Egypt’s venerable history, and a teak sun deck that is the perfect place for an evening cocktail or an afternoon dip in the pool. The luxurious lounge provides a vibrant social hub, where guests exchange stories before and after dinner, but there’s also an outdoor bar, for conversation under the sun or the stars. The elegant restaurant, on the main deck, serves an impressively varied selection of International and Egyptian food, and most dishes are available for in-cabin dining. Other treats include a massage room and exceptional excursions to sites of interest in the company of expert Egyptologists, who are also available on board to answer all the questions that invariably arise in such a fascinating country.
