Steam Ship Sudan

The Steam Ship Sudan has the allure and intimacy of a private yacht differentiating it from other cruisers on the Nile. It is also propelled by a hybrid diesel/steam system resulting in a quieter and more energy efficient journey.

This charming and authentic steamship was built in the early 20th century and was famously the setting for Agatha Christie's novel "Death on the Nile". Each of the 23 cabins are individually decorated but have kept their period character with warm woodwork, 19th century furniture and decorative carpets and fabrics. Each cabin has an ensuite bathroom with bathtub or shower and the five suites have large bay windows opening onto the Nile.

Why we like steam ship sudan

It may not have a pool or a spa but the Steam Ship Sudan has a character and history like no other boat on the Nile.


Cruise between Luxor and Aswan in either direction, over five nights.


Onboard dining offers the finest Egyptian cuisine and is served in the boats charming restaurant.


As well as plenty of time to relax and watch the beautiful Nile scenery drift by, there is of course a wealth of fabulous historical sites to experience. Sightseeing is done in small groups using the best Egyptologists.
