In 2020, Vantage Deluxe World Travel will launch a new, all-suite river ship to sail on Egypt's River Nile -- the company's first owned vessel in Africa.
Operated by the company's Vantage Cruise Line arm, the custom-built 84-passenger MS Nebu will debut in February with four accommodation types, including 210-square-foot cabins for solo travelers and adjoining staterooms for families and groups of friends.
Standard staterooms will measure 310 square feet and there will be two 500-square-foot Executive Suites; one Owner's suite will measure between 700 to 800 square feet. All staterooms will feature hotel-style bedding, a sitting area, air-conditioning, mini-bar, hair dryer, safe, telephone and TV with video channels. All bathrooms will have a tub and spa-style toiletries.
In addition to the main restaurant, MS Nebu will offer breakfast dining on the top deck. Other amenities include a lounge bar, fitness center, spa and swimming pool on the sun deck. The ship will have an elevator and Wi-Fi.
MS Nebu will offer five itineraries on the Nile, ranging from a seven-night roundtrip Luxor sailing to the "Ancient Wonders: Egypt & Nile River Cruise," an itinerary combining a seven-night sailing with deluxe hotel stays in Cairo.
Vantage's jazz-themed River Voyager boasts lounges and restaurants named after New Orleans icons like the Cotton Club and Bourbon Street, and artwork that pays homage to legends like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Dizzy Gillespie.
