The M/S Kasr Ibrim
was named after the ancient citadel on Lake Nasser, the only Nubian
monument that still exists in its original location. The Kasr Ibrim
citadel, standing on a high bluff overlooking the river valley,
was adapted to suit the needs of its diverse occupants throughout
the ages. Likewise, the M/S Kasr Ibrim provides an epic setting
for international travelers, while commemorating the citadel as
an enduring link with Egypt's distant past.
Service is thoughtful and friendly; the cuisine is superb. Each
day we anchor beside one of Lake Nasser's historic sites, where
a launch will take you ashore to explore.
The Kasr Ibrim’s interiors blend whimsical art deco motifs
with modern elegance and comfort. Relax in the ship’s spacious
and beautifully appointed lounge areas, its restaurant or bars.
On deck you will find a shaded area, a mosaic-lined swimming pool
and deckchairs to make the most of Lake Nasser’s glorious
scenery. Kasr Ibrim’s facilities also include a sauna, a steam
bath dressed in old marble, exercise equipment, and a state-of-the-art
water filtration system. The ship is fully air-conditioned.
