Cruising the Nile has long been seen as the most romantic way of visiting the monuments of Ancient Egypt and what better way to do it than on one of Abercrombie & Kent's own Sunboats. The standard of service, quality of food and our private docks (which give you the privacy and exclusivity not always possible with other boats) are all part of our boats' recipe for success.
By taking a luxury Nile cruise you are able to see some of the country's most important sights with ease and comfort. Each Nile cruise includes a programme of fascinating shore excursions accompanied by one of our private guides, who, with their specialist knowledge and insider access, will guarantee to enhance your Egypt holiday.
Find out more about the Zein Nile Chateau and our new dahabiya Nile cruises. A 'dahabiya' is a sailing boat that affords a more private sailing experience upon the Nile. Enjoy the luxury Nile cruise experience with the help of our experts.

Our recent awards
My trip to Egypt was achieved so well, by the incredible Egyptian staff and crew, I remained on board Sunboat IV for 2 weeks, not one, and then returned again within 3 weeks and spent another week on the boat!
