Onboard the MS Darakum

One of the smaller ships on the Nile, with just 52 cabins and suites, the five-star MS Darakum has been designed with a low draft in order to navigate the full length of the Nile in Egypt. It is currently the only vessel regularly operating this route, so this cruise is very much a unique experience!

Appointed to the highest specification and imaginatively furnished with a distinctive Moroccan theme, the MS Darakum offers extensive open deck space on three levels, with plenty sun loungers, sofas and armchairs to relax in. The pool on the sun deck is perfect for a cooling dip. The spacious, yet cosy lounge bar is the social hub of the ship, with board games and evening entertainment including music, wine-tasting and cookery lesson, a black & white party, the ever-popular ‘galabiya’ party and even a belly dancer!
The MS Darakum has five passenger decks.

Lower deck – the 20sq.m cabins have two twin beds and smaller square windows which cannot be opened. They are offered for sole occupancy with no single supplement (limited availability). The main restaurant is located at this level.

Main deck – the light and airy glass-panelled reception allows the light to filter down to the deck below. All cabins from this deck and above have large picture-windows offering magnificent river views, with a panel that can be opened.
