“Ladies and gentlemen…welcome aboard”
It was almost a century ago that the first privileged travellers set sail on Thomas Cook & Son’s steamboats.
The Steam Ship Sudan is the last survivor of this steam-powered fleet – the only one still gracing the Nile with her paddlewheels and oiled teak decks. Setting foot on her gangway, strolling along her broad passageways, falling asleep and dreaming in one of her 23 cabins will instantly transport you back in time to the days of Agatha Christie and Howard Carter.
In late spring and in summer 2017, the ship will be taking passengers on two exceptional cruises along a section of the Nile that was closed to shipping for 20 years.
From Aswan to Cairo (14 magical days) or from Cairo to Aswan (15 magical days) in Middle Egypt. A timeless voyage through Egyptian history and culture, enhanced by talks, films and videos, returning to dry land in modern day Cairo.
Please, find attached the itineraries and the public rates for those two exceptional cruises.
The rest of the year, the Steam Ship Sudan continues to sail on the Nile by proposing its two usual cruises : the “Eternal River” (3 nights from aswan to Luxor) and the “Dynastic” (4 nights from Luxor to Aswan).
