Float along the life-giving Nile on MS Mayfair, enjoying comfort and style the ancient pharaohs could only dream of, and witness the monuments of ancient civilizations that once flourished on its banks.
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.
With floor-to-ceiling glass windows and large, comfortable chairs, the Lounge is the heart of the ship - a gathering place for guests to view the scenery, have a drink, take in lectures and lore, and enjoy local music.
