Nile River, Egypt
A traditional Nile sailboat of the style built at the end of the 19th century, the 120-foot Lazuli III is the perfect vessel for observing life along the Nile. She features two decks, four air-conditioned double or twin cabins with private baths, and two air-conditioned suites with private bath. Meals are served outside on the large shaded deck, a fine place to relax on the comfy lounge chairs. Because the Lazuli III is sail-powered only, we cruise with the breeze and come to dock under oar, though when needed, a motorized boat with a tow line is on hand. The Lazuli III is a fantastic and intimate way to watch the riverside scenes and enjoy a lovely pace on the river in between our daily tours.
