Review of MS Steigenberger Omar El Khayam deck 5 (Observation)
Observation Lounge (Mamlouk Lounge & Bar) is the most spacious of all 3 lounges. It features classy furniture and offers 270° panoramic views from floor-ceiling windows. The Mamlouk Lounge has a full-service bar and ample comfortable seating, including sofas and armchairs. This is also the ship’s show lounge with daily itinerary-based lectures and talks with media presentations by professional Egyptologists. All presentations by the boat’s enrichment program are Egypt-themed: history (dynasties, treasures), architecture (building techniques), archaeology (excavations), hieroglyphics, and Egyptian keywords and phrases (language basics). The live evening entertainment program features performances by local artists and musicians.
Cruise cabins from 501 to 525, all of which are category A Veranda (balcony staterooms).
