Named after the Empress Eugenie of France, the MS Eugenie was the first ship to sail on Lake Nasser providing access to the wonderful Nubian monuments and temples previously unexplored. Decorated in the style of a turn-of-the-century Nile steamship, the cruiser was launched in 1993 and has style, charm, character and offers first class comfort, cuisine and facilities.
The pool and sun deck area is well appointed being situated towards the front of the cruiser, which, with ever changing panoramic views is ideal for those who wish to soak up the sun. There is a shaded covered area on deck for those who wish to relax and escape the sun and a mosaic lined swimming pool surrounded by sun loungers beckons the sun worshipper.
The MS Eugenie reception area features Nubian motif wall paintings and the well appointed spacious main lounge is reminiscent of Edwardian times. The earth toned Safari Lounge and the ship’s library have a welcoming and peaceful atmosphere.
The Eugenie operates on Lake Nasser.
In our opinion: a taste of a bygone era mixing well with modern comforts giving the traveller the opportunity to explore the ancient temples and monuments of Nubia on Lake Nasser.
The restaurant offers buffet style presentations during the cruise, with theme nights and a vast array of Egyptian and International cuisine available.
MS Eugenie has 52 cabins and 2 suites.
