Cruise in comfort and style onboard the Five-star luxury-rated Steigenberger Minerva. This ship creates the perfect atmosphere and a comfortable home base to explore the same route the Pharaohs would have taken in their stately processions along the Nile from Luxor to Aswan. The Steigenberger Minerva offers luxurious cabins, mouth-watering cuisine and a variety of entrainment and recreation on board. You will never get bored or lack for something to keep you occupied, even if that is just soaking up the rays on the enormous Sun deck that runs the entire length of the ship. This floating luxury hotel features a round-the-clock reception service as well as internet and international telephone facilities (charged against use) on board.

Featuring 73 large double cabins, 2 singles and 2 luxury Suites, the Steigenberger Minerva offers a choice of five deck levels (cabins on four decks):

  • Lower  Deck with 9 double cabins
  • Deck 1 with 20 double cabins
  • Deck 2 with 28 double cabins and 2  large double-size Suites
  • Deck 3 with 18 double cabins
  • Sun deck

Main and upper deck cabins have large panoramic sliding windows with a Nile view. All cabins are fully air-conditioned (individually controlled) and furnished with generous closet and wardrobe space.  Cabins also feature the following as standard:

  • Private W/C, shower and hairdryer
  • Marine Satellite TV with in-house video channels and music system
  • In-cabin safe for valuables and mini-bar/fridge
  • Full laundry service is available on request

Guests who book the Suites will also receive a complementary set of stationery, slippers and luxury bathrobes embroidered with logo and a departure souvenir logbook.

The main restaurant accommodates all passengers in one sitting and offers a mix of local and international buffet style cuisine created by a selected team of highly skilled chefs. Accommodation is on a full-board basis with daily tea time service including snacks and cakes. A large, sumptuous lounge and bar serves drinks and snacks all day.

Sit back and relax with your drink in hand from the pool bar on the sun deck or lounge by the large freshwater swimming pool situated forward on the Sun deck that runs for the entire length of the ship. Visit the gift shop or indulge yourself in the beauty salon (open on request twice weekly in Luxor and Aswan).
