Steigenberger Minerva

Overview

Dimensions:  72 m length.  14 m width.  1.5 m draft

Cruise in comfort and style onboard the Five-star luxury-rated Jaz Minerva. This ship creates the perfect atmosphere and a comfortable home base to explore the same route the Pharos would have taken in their stately processions along the Nile from Luxor to Aswan.  The Jaz Minerva offers luxurious cabins, mouth-watering cuisine and a variety of entrainment and recreation on board.  You’ll never get bored or lack for something to keep you occupied, even if that’s just soaking up the rays on the enormous Sun deck that runs the entire length of the ship.  This floating luxury hotel features a round-the-clock reception service as well as internet and international telephone facilities (charged against use) on board. The large and elegantly furnished restaurant can accommodate all passengers in one sitting, while the opulent lounge and bar will give the prefect area to relax or chat.  Cool off in the Sun deck swimming pool or sip your favourite cocktail at the pool bar.  Whatever you choose, there’s no better way to experience the sights and scenery of Egypt

Sit back and relax with your drink in hand from the pool bar on the sun deck or lounge by the large freshwater swimming pool situated forward on the Sun deck that runs for the entire length of the ship.  Visit the gift shop or indulge yourself in the beauty salon (open on request twice weekly in Luxor and Aswan).
