Experience the luxury and style of days gone by aboard the steamship Sudan. Built for King Fouad toward the end of the nineteenth century, this vessel has been lovingly restored to be the last of its kind to cruise the Nile. The charms of the Sudan were described in detail in Agatha Christie's 'Death on the Nile' and today, its authentic atmosphere still evokes images of Hercule Poirot pacing the decks. The Sudan is faithful to her origins with authentic fixtures and period furniture, rich woodwork, leather upholstery, brass bedsteads, panelled passageways and wooden decks, yet integrated with all the modern conveniences one would expect of a luxury river vessel.

Double Cabin - Upper Deck

The majority of the double cabins, as well as the suites, are located on the Sudan's Upper Deck. Each cabin is unique; some have Eastern decorative touches, such as oriental rugs and fabrics, while others are furnished with some classic 19th century furniture. What they all have in common is that they maintain their period character while offering the comfort and service of a top class hotel room. All of the double cabins have two windows and lead out directly on to the Promenade Deck. Amenities: En Suite Bathroom with Tub or Shower and WC. Air Conditioning. Two Windows. Safety Deposit Box.

Double Cabin - Main Deck
