The new Sonesta Star Goddess Nile Cruise Ship sails on the Nile River for three-, four- and seven-night cruises between Aswan and Luxor. All of the ship's 33 units are spacious suites, each with a private balcony and named after famous composers, giving it a touch of elegance and sophistication.
All Cabins and Suites are non-smoking. Smoking is allowed only in open areas. After guided tours of ancient sites, guests relax in the ship's swimming pool, enjoy a massage in the full-service spa or run on the ships jogging track. Fine dining awaits in the restaurant and nightly entertainment caps off a memorable day.
The ancient Egyptians knew Luxor as “Niut”, “the City”. Homer named it the “City of a Hundred Gates”. It possesses undeniable charm. Here and there among the palace halls and gardens and on facades of 19th century buildings with corbelled balconies there is a glimpse of the past colonials and Egyptian monarchs. As the sun sets, the Temple of Luxor seems to stand apart from the world of the living. Its columns, colossal statues and bays recover their serenity, oblivious to the carriages passing by.
