Oberoi Philae has luxurious amenities, including an Oberoi spa. Windows are nearly floor to ceiling and slide open, offering a connection with the river. The topmost deck has a swimming pool that is the largest of any Nile ship and an alfresco restaurant. Downstairs, there’s a stylish enclosed restaurant serving local specialties as well as more continental options.
The heart of the ship is the lounge, where everyone aboard gathers each night for Recap. It’s here that Egyptologists, who have worked with Lindblad for decades, share stories of the sites, who built them and why, and fascinating modern details like how they’ve changed over the years. And it’s these sites and stories, and this time to relax between exploring places of antiquity, that make this expedition, and this ship, so special.
We are so glad that we chose Adventure Life. The service is top-notch. Everything is well taken care of and we just have to print the documents and go. Franny even gave us timely updates on possible airport strike.
