One of the best ships on the Nile, and newly refurbished from top to bottom in autumn of 2018, the five-star MS Hamees is managed by the renowned Swiss hospitality company, Mövenpick. Beautifully appointed to the highest specification and furnished in a bright contemporary style, the MS Mövenpick Hamees offers extensive open deck space, with plenty of sun loungers, sofas and armchairs to relax in. The plunge pool on the Sun deck is perfect for a cooling dip. The spacious, yet cosy lounge bar is the social hub of the ship, with board games and evening entertainment including music, a Nubian show, the ever-popular ‘galabiya’ party and even a belly dancer! All the spacious cabins feature individually-controlled air conditioning, personal safe, minibar, TV (when docked), complimentary wifi and the convenience of tea & coffee making facilities. The beds are hotel-style and can be configured as a double or two twins, with the fine Egyptian cotton sheets, and an evening turn-down service. All the bathrooms have a bath with a fixed shower above, along with complimentary toiletries and hairdryer. A laundry service is also available. As in ancient times, it’s the fresh local produce of the lush Nile valley that is central to any meal in Egypt. The MS Mövenpick Hamees is known for its plentiful and varied buffets which feature a wide selection of both western and middle-eastern dishes – be sure to try the refreshing salads, hummus and falafel with hot flat bread straight from the oven.
