Dahabiya The Orient is built in colonial style. The heart of this traditional two-masted sailing boat is the half-shaded sundeck. It’s the perfect place to lie in a wooden deck chair and lazily watch the landscape gliding by. Down below is a nice living area, a salon, four cabins and one suite. The cosy salon has a small library with books about the Nile and Egypt. With its comfortable sofas, it’s the perfect setting to end the day. Swap stories, share experiences, read a book or play a game of backgammon while enjoying a Turkish coffee or a glass of Alexandrian wine.
The Orient is the smallest boat in our fleet. Accommodation aboard consists of four double cabins and just one suite with a private terrace. The beautifully appointed cabins and suite offer the charm of a bygone era. The boat is air-conditioned throughout and each cabin and the suite have an en-suite bathroom.
