The Oberoi Zahra brings a new level of luxury and comfort to Nile cruising. The ship's 5- and 7-night itineraries between Aswan and Luxor (and vice versa) have been designed to allow passengers to experience the sights of the Nile at a more leisurely pace. The included excursions are in small Mercedes minivans and private docking arrangements ensure a relaxed experience when going ashore as well as good access for guests with limited mobility.
The ship has 27 luxury cabins and suites, each with modern decor, plush armchairs, a coffee table and a picture window to view the passing scenery. Cabins are equipped with high speed internet access for up to four devices, a fully stocked minibar, rain shower and a bespoke pillow menu.
The restaurant provides a sophisticated all-day dining space with an a la carte menu that changes daily and large panoramic windows. Fresh food is prepared on board by talented chefs who combine an array of western, Indian, Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine. Other facilities on board include a lounge, small gym, temperature-controlled outdoor pool (11 metres long), boutique and spa offering exclusive treatments and beauty services.
