The Mövenpick Feddya Dahabiya is a boutique sailboat sailing the river Nile between Luxor and Aswan, offering fantastic shore excursions to explore the ancient Egyptian wonders. With only four suites onboard the Feddya, it is the closest experience to having your own private yacht - an exclusive and new concept for cruising the river Nile.
Built for King Farouk - Egypt's Last King - towards the end of the nineteenth century.
It is not a re-creation of the grand era but the real thing.
His Majesty King Farouk 's Steamship: Misr (Egypt) offers 16 state room and 8 suites
Now you can live the luxury, amenities and style of days gone by aboard the steamship Misr.
Built for the Royal Navy towards the early years of the twentieth century (1918) implementing for the first time Stevenson Link reversing system for a vertical steam engine.
The steamer was purchased and later converted into a luxury Nile steamer for King Farouk. Not a re-creation of this grand era but the real thing. Lovingly restored, it is among the last of its kind to cruise the great river. You'll cruise – as princes, kings, ambassadors and royal retainers once did – to ancient temples and villages bypassed by time.
One of the invitations cards found on board read "On the occasion of celebrating the birthday of his majesty King Farouk I, The governor of Cairo requests the honor of your company on board the Misr Nile Steamer at 08 P.M. on February the 10th, 1939".
The name of that Nile Steamer ship "Misr" is the Arabic for Egypt and the interior decor reflects the style of the period with each cabin having its own individual style. Each sailing is limited to a maximum of 45 guests.
The steamer is about 63 meters long and offers 24 cabins including 8 suites. All are fully air-conditioned, and all come with private facilities. Each stateroom has a large panoramic window. The steamer offers eight suites (the suites are very much in demand) and are offered on a first come, first serve basis. We regret that we do not offer a waiting list for the suites. Average square meter space for the cabin is about 18 - 20 square meters. Suites are about 30 square meter.
