AmaWaterways reports its 25th river cruise ship, the new AmaDahlia, is scheduled to set sail on Egypt’s legendary Nile River beginning September 2021.
The 11-night cruise and land adventure includes a seven-night round trip river cruise from Luxor and is paired with three nights pre- and one night post-cruise stays in historic Cairo at the five-star Four Seasons, Cairo at The First Residence.
This immersive Secrets of Egypt & Nile itinerary will provide travellers a unique opportunity to experience the ancient wonders of Egypt, while embraced in the luxurious, warm and welcoming atmosphere AmaWaterways is known for.
“We are excited to be coming back to the legendary Nile and introducing a new river cruise experience in Egypt,” said Rudi Schreiner, president and co-founder of AmaWaterways. “Everything about this new ship and curated itinerary reflects AmaWaterways’ focus on delivering luxurious accommodations, delectable cuisine and enriching experiences designed to engage with local communities and historic sites.”
Newly designed to accommodate only 68 guests, the AmaDahlia will feature 34 luxurious staterooms, 24 of which are spacious balcony suites measuring up to 430 sq. ft. Onboard amenities include a sun deck bar and swimming pool, fitness room, hair and nail salon, two massage rooms and two restaurants – The Main Restaurant and The Chef’s Table, offering a seven-course tasting menu. Guests will be treated to authentic nightly entertainment including a Belly Dance show, a Galabeya (a traditional Egyptian gown) party and a Darawish show.
The river cruise, sailing round trip from Luxor, and Cairo program – with intra-Egypt flights between Cairo and Luxor – will operate seasonally from September through to May each year.
