MS Nile Dolphin Review

Review of MS Nile Dolphin

MS Nile Dolphin is a "5-star luxury" Nile River cruise ship currently sailing on 4- and 5-day long itineraries between homeports Aswan and Luxor in Upper Egypt. Passengers cruising on this premium hotel ship visit Egypt's most ancient sites, temples and tombs.


The riverboat delivers class and elegance, with a touch of history to its travellers. It has all the amenities and comforts of a 5H European hotel. Nile Dolphin cabins are decorated in the style of the French Renaissance period. All staterooms are sized approx 20 m2 (220 ft2) and have French balconies, individual climate control, mini-fridge, flat TV, phone, safe, hairdryer, deluxe en-suite bathroom with a full glass enclosed shower with jet sprays.

Luxurious touches include a sun deck pool with bar and Jacuzzi, an air-conditioned spa and gym, beauty salon, and Egyptian cotton bed linens. An infra sauna with aroma and colour therapy treats the body and mind. Wifi is available in public areas.
