MS Iberotel Crown Emperor


Iberotel Crown Emperor Nile Cruise

Dimensions :  100 m length.  14.80 m  width.  1.54 m  draft
The Iberotel Crown Emperor is the second largest ship in the Travcotel fleet.  This impressive Five-star Deluxe Nile cruise liner carries travellers in supreme comfort, grace and style creating an atmosphere where your every wish is fulfilled. The ship's, professional, friendly and experienced staff and crew deliver a personalised service that is second to none.

Split over five-deck levels, this majestic vessel offers the perfect environment in which you can comfortably relax and soak up the real Egyptian atmosphere.  Enjoy a head-to-toe relaxation massage, top-up the tan on the enormous Sun deck or enjoy the nightly festivals of great fun and excellent food.  You can still experience the ancient wonders of Pharaonic Egypt with stop-overs and optional visits to some of the most perfectly preserved temples and monuments in Luxor and Aswan.

After a day marvelling at the wonders of the past, the Iberotel Crown Emperor offers a perfect night life to return to.  Enjoy the ship's spacious bar and lounge area, reading or relaxing in a cosy corner, or maybe take in one of the regular evening dancing and DJ music shows and folkloric entertainment. Whatever you choose,  you’ll want the ship to go as slowly as possible to prolong the Nile cruise experience of a lifetime.
