Karim Nile Steamer Cruise

Built in 1917, the S/S Karim Nile Paddle Steamer has undergone extensive renovations completed in October 1998. The boat was again renovated during 2009. This historic vessel was originally used by King Fuad I of Egypt and then by his son King Farouk. After the Egyptian revolution, the S/S Karim was used by the state and hosted President Gamal Abd El Nasser and later on President Anwar Al Sadat and his wife Gihan. Still powered by its original 1917 steam engine and stern quarter wheel paddles, the S/S Karim today combines the comfort of the modern era with the grandeur of the bygone past.

The lounge bar offers a full international bar service, a library with a collection of books dating back to 1849, as well as a dance floor and music system.
