Two Oberoi cruise boats glide gracefully up and down the Egyptian Nile, each with its own trademark style. The Philae's interiors are in classic English country style, with plush furnishings and wrought-iron balconies in every cabin. It would be the perfect setting for an Agatha Christie mystery! Meanwhile the Zahra's modern elegance is in sharp contrast to the thousands of years of history on view.
Daily sightseeing is with experienced guides, the Zahra even boasting an onboard Egyptologist. Luxury extends to every corner of each vessel, with gourmet dining and opulent lounge areas. Oddly perhaps, the seemingly more staid Philae has the more lively nightlife, while cruisers on the Zahra are more likely to settle quietly in the cigar lounge.
The stars of the show of course, are the ancient sites and the beautiful scenery, both enjoyed through panoramic windows.
