The upper observation deck sweeps almost the whole length of the cruiser, giving you an uninterrupted, fourth storey view of the river, the traditional dhows and feluccas plying along and the life on the banks. Not to mention, of course, the enigmatic monuments, statues and obelisks that can be seen ashore, giving you a window into the Land of the Pharaohs.
The Temple of Karnak with its incredible forest of decorated columns, and the temples at Luxor. The Valley of the Kings and Queens with their massive, impassive statues looking down on you from the dizzying heights of countless centuries. El-Bahri and the Colossi Memnon and the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut at El-Dier. These are just a few of the awe-inspiring places you’ll be able to explore as part of your journey along one of the old world’s most influential rivers.
Back on board the St George I, the décor may be classic-era in style, but the individual cabins and suites are appointed in a manner that is decidedly 21st century. A live sailing channel on your plasma TV, for example. Super-sized French windows that open to give you fresh breezes and stunning views. Climate Control. And, of course, sophisticated onboard cuisine, served in refined surroundings.
