Kasr Ibrim Cruise Ship

About Kasr Ibrim Cruise Ship

Kasr Ibrim Cruise Ship 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.

Relax in the ship’s spacious 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 idle luxury. Kasr Ibrim’s facilities also include state-of-the-art water filtration systems,  sauna, steam bath, exercise equipment, and is fully air-conditioned.

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.
