AmaWaterways is to build its 25th river cruise ship, AmaDahlia, with the new vessel set to start offering cruises on the Nile River in Egypt from September 2021.

AmaDahlia will sail on an 11-night ‘Secrets of Egypt & the Nile’ journey, which will include a seven-night roundtrip departing from Luxor. Guests will also spend four nights at a five-star hotel in Cairo, Egypt – three before the cruise and one after.

“We are excited to be coming back to the legendary Nile and introducing a new river cruise experience in Egypt,” said Rudi Schreiner, president and co-founder of AmaWaterways. “Everything about this new ship and curated itinerary reflects AmaWaterways’ focus on delivering luxurious accommodations, delectable cuisine and enriching experiences designed to engage with local communities and historic sites.”

Designed to accommodate 68 guests, AmaDahlia will feature 34 staterooms, 24 of which will be balcony suites. Passengers can enjoy a sun deck bar and swimming pool, fitness room, hair and nail salon and two massage rooms. Dining options will consist of The Main Restaraunt and The Chef’s Table, which will offer a seven-course tasting menu. The ship will also feature nightly entertainment, including a belly dance show and a Galabeya party.

“Egypt is rich with culture and history and deserves its ranking as one of the most fascinating destinations in the world,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of the river cruise line. “We continuously search for new ways to expand our offerings, bringing new experiences to our loyal repeat guests as well as attracting new luxury travellers in search of adventure and exploration.”
