Ship
MS Omar El Khayam- Old
Overview

This intimate ship carries just 160 guests on Lake Nasser in spacious suites and staterooms. Featured amenities include a pool, jacuzzi, gym and sauna with massage services.

Activities

Ride a camel near the pyramids at Giza, sample local Nubian cuisine, take in traditional performances of folk music and dance, see the treasures of King Tutankhamun, sail a felucca on the Nile, and enjoy a sound and light show at Abu Simbel. These in-depth experiences are included as an essential part of discovering more about the places through which you cruise, and each activity is planned specifically to illuminate each itinerary.

Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. We offer a series of onboard multimedia talks to shed light on the history and culture of the places you visit. Topics may include Egypt's 5,000 year old dynasties, hieroglyphics, ancient Egyptian building techniques, archaeological excavations of Egypt's treasures, and key words and phrases in the local language. These presentations provide a context for your own observations, enhancing your travel experience.

Dining

For breakfast, choose from our selections of pastries, cereals, breakfast meats, egg dishes, fresh fruit and selected cheeses. At lunch, select from the soup and sandwich bar, or a choice of entrees and dessert. And for dinner, you are treated to a five-course menu with regional specialties. You may also select from our regional wines to perfectly complement your meal. And wherever you sail, you will find enhancements reflecting your itinerary-it is all part of experiencing the local culture.
