The Sanctuary Sun Boat IV is a sophisticated, art deco vessel with modern fittings and technology to ensure the most elegant and comfortable cruise along the Nile. Harmonious colours and teak flooring are used throughout the boat which, along with modern and eye-catching furniture. On the sun deck, teak is combined with Egyptian marble around the heated swimming pool creating the perfect place to relax and an atmosphere of the golend era of cruise ship travel. The art deco influence continues in the dining room, featuring hand painted images depicting everyday life in Nubia and deep leather chairs. Award winning chefs serve gourmet meals, best enjoyed with the sunset over the Nile. There are 36 standard cabins, two presidential suites and two royal suites – all complete with Nile views, air conditioning, a mini bar and a satellite television. The ship has a choice of three and four night itineraries, led by Egyptologist guides, and it is the one of only a few Nile boats to visit the Temple of Hathor at Denderah on a four night itinerary.
