iCruise Egypt - Vol. 03: Afandina, Luxury dahabiya Nile Cruise on the Nile River
Travelling the Nile in Private A f a n d i n a D a h a b i y a The 19th Century way runs
by the power of wind
Afandina (“majesty” in Arabic) lives up to its name: it is a dahabiya
(houseboat), its polished wooden decks, brass fittings and silver service
redolent of grand tours in the golden age of travel. With just eight cabins,
and a member of crew for every passenger, it is the most comfortable way to see
the sights, a far cry from the usual multi-decker tourist cruiser.
