The M/S Kasr Ibrim was named after the ancient citadel on Lake Nasser, the only Nubian monument that still exists in its original location. The Kasr Ibrim citadel, standing on a high bluff overlooking the river valley, was adapted to suit the needs of its diverse occupants throughout the ages. Likewise, the M/S Kasr Ibrim provides an epic setting for international travelers, while commemorating the citadel as an enduring link with Egypt's distant past.
The M/S Kasr Ibrim was launched in September 1997. The ship is 256 feet long, with just 55 cabins for maximal comfort, and 10 luxurious suites. The interior décor reflects the Art Deco style of the 1920's.
