Nile River, Egypt
The luxurious 5-star Nile Adventurer, with only 28 double staterooms and four suites, enjoys a relaxed and intimate yacht-like atmosphere. Recently refurbished, its comfortable staterooms all have private bathrooms, large picture windows looking out onto the Nile, and amenities such as color TVs and CD players. The ship is air-conditioned throughout its five passenger decks and features a gift shop, library, game room, two bars and a lounge, as well as laundry facilities. The food is excellent and dinning is on an open single-seating basis. On warmer days, the upper sundeck has a swimming pool for a cooling dip, and the lower shaded deck has a pleasant outdoor bar.
