Setting sail since 2006, the Sonesta Star Goddess is one of the most prestigious cruise ships navigating the Nile today. This five-deck, all-suite floating hotel combines glamorous hospitality and modern luxury on three-, four-, and seven-night itineraries, each revealing 5,000 years of Egypt’s ancient history between Luxor and Aswan.
Designed and built in Cairo, the Sonesta Star Goddess embodies luxury with a modern perspective. There are no “cabins” here: only 33 expansive suites outfitted with private balconies and panoramic windows, perfect for watching the endless Nile waters slip past in relaxed solitude. The suites are each named for famous composers and consist of 27 elegant Beethoven Suites, four lush Mozart Suites, and two exclusive Chopin Suites, spacious and comfortably furnished in Baroque splendor. All feature wireless Internet access, luxurious en-suite bathrooms, full-sized bathtubs, and individually controlled air conditioning.
Guests of the Sonesta Star Goddess have a wide variety of dining and leisure activities. On the first floor at water level is the main dining room, the culinary hub of the ship where impeccably presented delicacies and Egyptian label wines are served throughout the day. Upstairs on the top deck, the open-air sun deck boasts plenteous sun loungers, a glistening infinity swimming pool, and adjacent pool bar and service at the Sun Deck Bar & Barbecue, the perfect spot to soak in the sun and views of the Nile while savoring refreshing cocktails and barbecue. For light meals, stylish cocktails, and discotheque sounds, head down to the lounge adjacent to the lobby.
The Sonesta Star Goddess embarks on stunning journeys to the landmark temples, tombs, and ruins along the Nile. With private Egyptologists as guides, guests can set out on authentic explorations through the incredible history of the region. After days among the ancient sites, head back to the ship for daily afternoon tea and evenings of leisurely on-ship activities, such as music performances in the lounge, Galabeya parties, and belly dancing demonstrations. Keep active on the jogging track around the sun deck or in the full-service gym, and retreat to the delightful spa for extensive massage treatments and “me time” in the sauna and steam baths, the epitome of luxury along the Nile.Request Information
