THIS IS YOUR ALL VEGAN FLOATING HOTEL

The all-suite Sonesta Sun Goddess is one of the most luxurious cruise ships on the River Nile and is the flagship of the acclaimed Sonesta fleet. In short: It's the perfect ship for a vegan week in Egypt.
While cruising between Luxor and Aswan, the Sonesta Sun Goddess Nile cruise reveals the timeless natural beauty of Upper Egypt. On-board, the public areas have an elegant and sophisticated feel with modern furnishings and make extensive use of wooden flooring. Egyptian artwork complements the decorative style to give the Sonesta Sun Goddess both a sense of space and the look of an elegant city hotel. There are only 30 massive suites on board – just half the number of cabins that are typically found on a Nile cruise ship. All cabins have a private terrace and a sitting area, along with a bathroom that features a full size bathtub, Wi-Fi connection, and a complimentary tea and coffee tray that is refilled daily. The 26 Presidential suites are a generous 40sqm in size, while the Executive Suite (48 sqm) and the Royal Suite with Jazuzzi (60 sqm) are among the largest suites on the Nile river. A lift and staircase connects the ships five decks. The Sun Deck is the highest deck and is the place to come to relax on the comfortable shaded sun-loungers while watching the magical panoramas pass by. This is also where you will find the outdoor swimming-pool and Sun Deck Bar. As you descend through the boat, you’ll come across the Spa, Jacuzzi and massage room as well as the Beauty Salon and Bazaar. Adjacent to the lobby, the comfortable Lounge has a stylish ambiance and features a dancefloor and bar service. Breakfast, buffet lunches and á-la carte dinners are served in the Main Dining Room. You prefer to dine in the privacy of your own suite? Enjoy in-room dining until midnight.
