A traditional Nile cruise – The Sonesta Dahabiya takes you back in time to a gentler, more gracious era on a 7-night Nile cruise experience between Luxor and Aswan (or vice versa).

Sail on the Sonesta Dahabiya and your journey from Luxor to Aswan will be at the gentle pace of a bygone era.

A week long journey cruising the Nile, on board the kind of traditional, small sailing vessel, favoured by travellers in the 1920's and 30's, is a truly memorable experience. Cleverly recreating the days of elegant travel, Sonesta has combined old-style atmosphere with 21st century comfort in Dahabiya's five deluxe cabins and two suites, and on its shaded sundeck complete with oriental jacuzzi.

Highlights of the cruise stretch from the temple of Karnak, one of the world's largest, to Abu Simbel and the romantic island Temple of Isis at Philae.
