The Dalida is one of a few Dahabiyas, the river sailboats once common in Egypt in the days of the monarchy, which are still in operation. The Dalida has three identical sisters: the Agatha Christie, Princess Grace and Om Kolthoum all of which sail gracefully between Luxor and Aswan. Cruise back in time on these elegant sailboats and exclusively discover the Nile's romance in an intimate and privileged style just as the former Egyptian elites and aristocrats once experienced.



Immerse yourself in the rich cultural history of the mysterious lands along the Nile with a cruise on board the Dalida. The Dalida is one of the few remaining Dahabiyas that were popular during the days when Pharaohs ruled the land. Step back in time and travel in elegance befitting the Egyptian monarchy as the Dalida guides you on an unforgettable tour along the Nile between Luxor and Aswan.

The cabins on board the Dalida offer exceptional private space and are the perfect place to indulge in some undisturbed relaxation. You will not even be aware of the engine noise as the Dalida has her own towboat. The wood paneled, air conditioned, cabins are all fitted with wide windows to view the beautiful passing scenery.                               

The Dalida offers plenty of areas to relax. In the lounge you can sip your favourite drink from the bar or curl up with a good book from the library.  On the sundeck, you can enjoy the sunshine and soft river breeze while lounging on one of the comfortable deck chairs and couches. Also on the sundeck is a Jacuzzi where you can take in the spectacular panoramic view and a barbeque area which is the perfect place to socialise with the other passengers.

On the Dalida you will dine in privileged style and comfort. Breakfast and lunch will typically be served buffet style and dinner is an elegant affair where waiters will serve you a full course meal at your table.  Take part in the decadent feasts of fresh fish, salads and refreshing drinks offered in the alfresco shaded dining area on the upper deck.

A wonderful, memorable experience awaits you on board the Dalida. With the comfort of a 5 star hotel, a courteous crew of 12 and a flexible and exciting itinerary this cruise is the perfect combination of adventure and luxury.
