Generally regarded as one of the most luxurious and refined cruise boats currently sailing along the Nile, The Oberoi Zahra thoroughly deserves its reputation for excellence.

You can expect a designer spa offering a full menu of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments. A swimming pool and glorious sun decks. Evenings filled with contemporary haute cuisine, performances of traditional dancing and music and romantic star gazing from the boat’s rail.

But perhaps the greatest luxury offered by The Oberoi Zahra, is being able to see the history of Egypt through the eyes of expert Egyptologists. They will accompany you to the great sights and add depth to your experience.
