The suite is measuring 21m2 with a beautiful Lounge that opens onto its own private terrace which affords panoramic views of the Nile, perfect for entertaining or “when you just want to be alone”. The Suite boasts Egyptian cotton bedding, telephone with ample wardrobe and draw space. The bathrooms are equipped with a power shower, toilet, washbasin and hairdryer.

Sundeck

The Upper Deck is the place to be for sun worshippers , It has oriental seating, sun Lounger, two Pergolas decorated with Arabic style, one of them has a big bar serving Fresh juices , However Sundeck is for guests wanting to escape the heat of the sun it is partially shaded. We will take meals at our large banqueting table and relax on the comfortable deck furniture, or sip mint tea in our Arabic corner furnished with local carpets and cushions as well as Arabesque sofas.

Salon & Restaurant

The Salon is at the front of the ship and makes a delightful meeting place, as well as providing an alternative location for meals. Borrow a book or DVD from our library, play board games, TV that can be connected with the outside world with our onboard internet connection or be used as demonstrators for DVDs . The salon is also a place to meet your fellow guests for drinks at the bar before dinner and perhaps sip a digestive and discuss the events of the day late into the evening.

Cuisine

The food on board Dahabiya Amoura is designed to offer a wide range of dishes which will appeal to most tastes. Breakfast is a leisurely affair which may be taken on the top deck whenever you are ready in the morning. There are no set times and the stewards will bring you freshly squeezed juice, fresh fruit, fine coffee and a variety tea’s, eggs any way you like them, even soft boiled eggs and soldiers as well as the usual cereals etc. Or you may prefer to try an Egyptian breakfast “Shakshuka” eggs scrambled with onion, peppers, garlic and a little chili served with soft bread rolls to awaken your palate! We buy freshly caught fish from the local fisherman as they pull up alongside at any convenient point during our journey; we are able to change the menu at short notice to accommodate freshly grilled Nile Perch or Catfish. Lunch is on the top deck under the shade of the canvas roof which protects everyone from the midday sun. We generally serve a selection of local Mediterranean dishes including Baba Anoug (eggplant and chick pea dip) Middle Eastern Salads, Falafel, Sweet Tomato Salad and local Flatbread. It’s perfect lunch fare for vegetarians as well as carnivores. Dinner can be a slightly more formal affair (though it needn’t be) and it is an opportunity for the ladies to dress up. Most evenings are a delightful temperature to dine outside on the upper deck or wherever we dock, on a sandy island, in the grounds of one of the temples or simply on the banks of the Nile. If the weather is less than perfect (too hot, too cold) then dinner is served in the air-conditioned Salon after cocktails in the bar prepared by our Head Steward.
We serve an authentic Egyptian Banquet including the famous Pigeon Farsi, Stuffed Vine Leaves, Fish Tajen, with roasted seasonal vegetables and other Middle Eastern delectable’s. After which, the crew will lead the guests in a riotous fun evening of music, singing and dancing in full traditional costume. Enthusiasm and eagerness to please mean that the service staff will look after all your dining needs with friendly efficiency, the intimate layout of  Amoura  ensures that food is always fresh and served piping hot with grace and style. Enjoy!
