Nile River Cruises pose a challenge at disembarkation along the rivers' side. Here are the access details of our selected ships in Egypt.

Arrival and Docking issues
Nile River cruise ships dock parallel to the pier and multiple ships dock side by side to one another from the pier. We secure our Nile cruise to be the 2nd or 3rd in the row maximum. Due to existence of steps from the quayside to our Nile cruise ship, passengers must agree to be lifted by the crew during disembarkation. Passengers using heavy wheelchairs may need to disembark separately from the equipment in a manual wheelchair and join the equipment once on land.

Elevators
Our selected Nile cruises are equipped with 3 story elevators for easier access All decks are reachable by elevator including the upper most Sundeck.

Accessible Staterooms
We have access to a maximum of 4 fully wheelchair accessible staterooms. These selected staterooms are junior suite category and spacious enough for wheeling around and without barriers. B
athrooms are equipped with wide entrance door Grab rails and roll-in showers. See accessible stateroom photos HERE
