Nile launch for ultra luxury cruise boat
Upmarket tour operator Abercrombie & Kent is to launch what it claims will be the “finest new craft on the Nile”. The boutique boat, which is scheduled to enter service late next year and is still to be named, will have 32 cabins. With floor to ceiling windows and balconies above the water they will, the firm says “far surpass the typical standards for luxury Egyptian river cruises”. Two suites will have hot tubs on private decks. The vessel will carry Egyptologists to provide insights into the region’s history. A&K already operates four boutique boats on the Nile.
