To fully discover the ancient wonders of Egypt, a cruise on the River Nile is truly an unforgettable experience. The Nile River has been Egypt's lifeline since ancient times and there is no better way to trace the passage of Egypt's history than to follow the course of the Nile.


Sanctuary Retreats, which has a fleet of three world renowned boats on the Nile. In addition to the Nile cruise boats, there is an exquisitely designed traditional sailing boat, Sanctuary Zein Nile Chateau Dahabiya, that is perfect for families and small, intimate groups for an old fashioned, luxurious sailing experience.


Even outside of your vessel, a Sanctuary Retreats cruise experience is unlike any other - with private docks and uniquely tailored sightseeing to avoid the crowds.


We believe that a Nile cruise is much more than just a room-and-sightseeing package, it is an entire experience where the quality of service, entertainment, on-board facilities, and food and beverage are all equally vital ingredients.
