The Nile on Board Sanctuary 'Sun Boat III'

Luxury Along the Nile

Award-winning Nile cruiser Sanctuary ‘Sun Boat III’ graces the river with elegance and style. Its comfortable public spaces, inviting cabins and memorable cuisine grant her 36 guests a one-of-a-kind experience.

‘Sun Boat III’ is designed with authenticity in mind. Egyptian designer Shahira Fahmy adopted a British colonial theme through a blend of European, Egyptian and Bedouin influences. The Sahara Lounge suggests an Egyptian royal hunting tent, while the cozy H. Carter Lounge is the ideal place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. Perhaps the ship’s most stunning feature is Cleopatra’s Oasis, where guests go to take a dip in the pool and watch the lush landscape roll by.

Because Sanctuary ‘Sun Boat III’ has a shorter draft than other Nile cruisers, she can sail off the beaten path to Denderah and Abydos nearly year-round, unlike other vessels, which cannot sail north of Luxor when water levels drop between November and February.

Throughout your cruise, enjoy impeccable on-board service, top-notch amenities and lively on-board lectures. Combined with shore visits led by Egypt’s finest guides, it is hardly surprising that Architectural Digest dubbed ‘Sun Boat III’ the “Jewel of the Nile.”
