This authentic Dahabiya The Orient is a colonial-style genuine Nile cruise based on the design of an original traditional Dahabiya from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The half-shaded sundeck is the beating heart of this traditional two-masted sailing boat. It’s the ideal spot for relaxing on a wooden deck chair while watching the scenery pass by. A beautiful living room, a salon, four cabins, and one apartment may be found downstairs. A modest library containing literature about the Nile and Egypt may be found in the cozy salon. It’s the ideal place to unwind after a long day, with its plush seats. While sipping Turkish coffee or a glass of Alexandrian wine, swap tales, exchange experiences, read a book, or play a game of backgammon.
