Sanctuary Sun Boat IV

A contemporary boat with a stylish art deco feel, Sun Boat IV oozes luxury and style, with friendly staff, first class service and exceptional food. Of the 40 cabins and suites, all on the main deck and higher have large floor to ceiling windows where first thing in the morning you can wake up to the picturesque banks of the Nile from the comfort of your bed.

For a special treat, a Royal Suite is perfect for a romantic stay with its own balcony commanding panoramic views of the Nile from the front of the ship. All cabins are well equipped with air conditioning and ensuite facilities and the swimming pool is the perfect spot to relax in the sun.

why we like sun boat iv

The Sunboat IV is one of the few boats on the Nile to visit the Dendarah Temple on a four night itinerary. This much less visited temple is known as the Temple of Hathor and is located to the north of Luxor


Cruise between Luxor and Aswan in either direction, over three or four nights. Longer seven night cruises are also available, starting and ending in either Luxor or Aswan.


There is an upper sun deck with a heating swimming pool as well as a shaded deck area and a lounge bar. The boat also boasts a library, games room, gymnasium and a massage room. Dining options cater for all tastes and service on the boat is extremely personal.  


The focus of any Nile cruise is, of course, the wealth of ancient sites to visit on the banks of the Nile. Sightseeing is done in small groups and the Egyptologists on board are known for their enthusiasm and knowledge.
