SHIP Information

One of the smaller ships on the Nile, with just 52 cabins and suites, the five-star MS Darakum has been designed with a low draft in order to navigate the full length of the Nile in Egypt. It is currently the only vessel regularly operating this route, so this cruise is very much a unique experience!

Appointed to the highest specification and imaginatively furnished with a distinctive Moroccan theme, the MS Darakum offers extensive open deck space on three levels, with plenty sun loungers, sofas and armchairs to relax in. The pool on the sun deck is perfect for a cooling dip. The spacious, yet cosy lounge bar is the social hub of the ship, with board games and evening entertainment including music, wine-tasting and cookery lesson, a black & white party, the ever-popular 'galabiya' party and even a belly dancer!

Highlights
Dining

Located on the lower deck is the main restaurant, serving a varied buffet dinner every evening.

Enrichment

Wine tasting and cookery lessons are available at a small charge when onboard.

Entertainment

On board you will find a spacious sun deck with loungers, sofas and armchairs, a lounge and bar area to relax in, evening music entertainment and a selection of board games to enjoy.

Health & Fitness

There is a small fitness area and a plunge pool on the sun deck.

Kid & Teens

Please note: there are no dedicated kids or teens facilities onboard.

Useful to Know
Gratuities

It is customary aboard all cruise ships worldwide to give a gratuity at the end of a cruise, providing, of course, you have received good service. Riviera Travel emphasise that the amount you give is entirely discretionary, and is then divided equally among the crew on board. Riviera Travel are often asked for guidance on the amount, and suggest between €5 and €10 per person per day.

Again at your discretion they recommend tipping your local guides and drivers at the end of each tour, for which you can use the following guidelines:

Local guides €2 per person, per day

Drivers €1 per person, per day

Should you also wish to give a gratuity to your Riviera Cruise Director and Tour Manager, this is also at your discretion.
