Rated 'EXCELLENT' by TripAdvisor & FlipKey

Based on the Nile at Luxor, Princess Donia is a British-owned and run luxurious dahabiya sailing ship, offering a unique experience for those seeking to get away from it all. This romantic 36m ship will take you on a magical sailing trip from Luxor to Aswan. Imagine sitting on deck and enjoying the amazing views in wonderful tranquil silence and see the many ancient Egyptian monuments, temples, tombs and scenes beside the Nile that have not changed in thousands of years.

With only 5 double ensuite cabins and a maximum of 10 guests, Princess Donia ensures a very high standard of accommodation, exceptional service and a great atmosphere. This elegant ship offers a personal touch that is sometimes lacking in today's fast paced world.

Inspired by authors/Egyptologists like Fiona Deal, Toby Wilkinson and Elizabeth Peters, I decided to book a trip on a dahabiya on the Nile. It's surpassed my expectations. It's been magical. It's been relaxing and stimulating at the same time - a perfect combination of sailing...More
