This vessel is in our opinion, the finest river vessel on the Nile and probably the finest of its type in the world. The dimensions on the M/S Triton are those of any other of the largest ships on the Nile, but instead of 60 to 70 cabins, with a capacity of 140 passengers on board, the M/S Triton offers accommodation for only twenty couples. Of the 20 state-rooms aboard, 10 have double beds, while the other 10 are twin bedded. All rooms offer 2 large windows, sitting areas, telephone, TV and private video, large bathrooms with a large sink unit, bath with shower. There are no passenger accommodations aft of midships and none on the lowest deck. A single cabin steward will look after your suite for the duration of the cruise. There is a crew of 61, a spacious dining room, lounges, indoor pool, spa and outdoor pool tiled with thousands of hand made glass mosaics.
The dining salon offers a la carte fine continental cuisine, exotic dishes and rare local offerings. You can dine whenever you wish and the chefs will be glad to receive special requests for your favorite dishes or dietary needs. The air conditioning in the dining room is "zoned," for individual comfort. Barbecue luncheons are served on deck, weather permitting. The elephantine Bar is decorated in Art Deco manner and offers live entertainment. The Atrium lounge Bar is decorated in English style with gleaming brass and antique pieces.
As one might expect, the vessel is privately owned by the El Narsh family and run by Tamer El Narsh who learned his trade at the Swiss Hotel School. For complete privacy, there is the unique 'Bridge Suite" which, as the name implies runs the complete width of the vessel on top of the navigation bridge. It has it's own small "Promenade Deck" curving 180 degrees, overlooking the bow and matching the scenic all round view from the suite.
The leisurely pace of the cruise, with all sailing in daylight hours, allows plenty of time for shore visits in a dedicated luxury motorcoach, to the incredible temples and tombs that line the Nile, in the company of one of the ship's several university trained guides. There is also the extra space and comfort available for leisure, that only a vessel of this size, with this very limited number of passengers, can offer. Terms are all inclusive with no extras and no tipping.
