Video – Along Shores of Time

We journey up the storied Nile;
The timeless water seems to smile;
The slow and swarthy boatman sings;
Water birds spread their wings;
We catch the breeze and sail away,
Along the dawning of the day,

We sail along the past, and see
Great Thebes with Karnak at her knee.
To Isis and Osiris rise
The prayers and smoke of sacrifice.
We watch the palms along the shore,
And dream of what is here no more.

based on a poem of Henry Abbey (1842-1911)

Along Shores of Time, tells a journey along the Nile. The majestic sail boat “Feddya” takes us on a soothing cruise through impressive ancient history, all along the shores of a river that gives life to nowadays Egyptians. A voyage of plenty, joy and excitement.
This has been the traditional way of travel since the Pharaohs and now those days have been revived with modern comfort, five star service and luxurious accommodation.

The Mövenpick SB Feddya is a boutique sailboat sailing the river Nile between Luxor and Aswan, offering fantastic shore excursions to explore the ancient Egyptian wonders. With only four suites onboard the Feddya, it is the closest experience to having your own private yacht – an exclusive and new concept for cruising the river Nile.
