Originally constructed in Preston by the Royal Navy in 1918, the SS Misr was purchased and later converted into a luxury Nile steamer for King Farouk. Now fully restored to a five-star deluxe propeller steam vessel, she accommodates just 45 passengers in spacious, air-conditioned cabins and suites. Misr means ‘the Kingdom of Egypt’ and the décor throughout the vessel reflects the period.
Your Cabin / Suite
Each cabin and suite has its own individual style and all feature a private balcony, air conditioning, en-suite bathroom with bathtub and shower, hairdryer, mini-bar, robes and television. The suites on the upper deck are almost 50% larger in size than the standard cabins.
The 14 category 3 and 4, twin/double cabins measure 21 square metres and feature a sweeping window that opens up to a private terrace with chairs so that guests can enjoy the spectacular view of the Nile at all times. The category 2 suites are approximately 30 square metres. Spacious and welcoming, these exquisitely appointed suites offer the perfect refuge to unwind after a day of adventure and sightseeing. Luxuriously designed, each suite includes an elegant living area that contains a stylish loveseat and chairs, complemented by floor-to-ceiling windows that open to a private terrace so that guests can enjoy the spectacular view of the Nile. The category 1 panorama suites are approximately 35 square metres and are situated at the front of the vessel and offer impressive panoramic views. Unlike the other accommodations, these suites come with a private, furnished panoramic terrace that offers a spectacular 180-degree view of the Nile, so that guests can enjoy the inspiring view from every angle while cruising. This is the perfect spot to relax after a long day with a drink or book, or to watch the leisurely sail along the Nile to the next destination. There are also dedicated single cabins which measure 14.5 square metres.
The restaurant situated on the main deck serves international cuisine and seats all passengers in one open seating arrangement. Breakfast and lunch are buffet-style whilst dinner is seated waiter service. Tables seat six to eight people. Tea and coffee are served on a complimentary basis with breakfast and at afternoon tea. A complimentary bottle of water will be provided in your cabin. Special dietary requests such as vegetarian and low cholesterol should be made to Noble Caledonia (in writing) in advance. We regret that the ship is unable to guarantee special requests and is not equipped to prepare or serve kosher or halal cuisine.
The SS Misr is both elegantly furnished and spacious throughout. The Marasem Restaurant, Saraya Lounge and Dahabia Bar are located on the higher decks offering wonderful views of the Nile. The period-style restaurant accommodates all guests at one sitting. There is also a lower sun deck with comfortable wicker chairs and an upper sun deck with a pool and sun beds for relaxation. The onboard attentive staff are always available to offer a cool beverage whilst watching the ever changing passing scenery. The ship also has an onboard souvenir and gift shop selling jewellery, local handmade gifts and Galabeyas.
