Mövenpick cruises

Luxury steamship SS Misr sails along the River Nile

Originally built by the British Royal Navy in 1918 and later converted into a luxury Nile steamer for King Farouk, SS Misr is a true time capsule that rekindles the nostalgia of a golden age, with true luxury accommodation, cuisine and service.


Memories of the British and Ottoman Empires combine with stunningly cool chic Art Deco interiors of the 16 cabins and 8 glorious suites which all feature a private balcony with panoramic views across the Nile. A private bathroom and all modern accessories ensure an unrivalled luxurious stay on board. Gourmet cuisine served on fine china by staff attired in King Farouk court costume complete the ambience of regal excellence. Meet in the Dhabiyyat Bar for pre-dinner drinks to share explorer tales with fellow guests. The sundeck and pool area offer the perfect spot to relax and admire the wonders of Egypt. Sailing between Luxor and Aswan, a well-crafted land itinerary includes highlights such as Valley of the Kings and Queens on the West Bank, the Kom Ombo Temple, the unfinished Obelisk, the Edfu Temple and Karnak and Luxor Temples on the East Bank.

Egypt is once again becoming a highly popular destination, offering such a wealth of historic treasures and sightseeing opportunities.
