Sunboat IV

Managed by Abercrombie and Kent

Personal Impression

The Sunboat IV is a really beautiful boat with wonderful public space with the only concern being the small cabins. The public spaces are spacious, contemporary, and classy.

The Public Rooms

Main Lounge

A more traditional room with a wood floor and carpet areas in light taupe. Interesting furniture with purples, beige and red but it all works very well. Some really unique touches in certain areas of the room. The large circular bar dominates and offers tempting cocktails.

Dining Room and Outdoor Dining

Wood floors with light brown chairs it is a large dining room with a center serving area. The back wall has murals and there is a lot of space in the dining room. Menus feature primarily western foods.

Sun Deck

The sun deck is stunning. Lots of Balinese beds, extremely comfortable furniture and an attractive deck layout. The nicest sun deck I have seen so far. People who like sitting outdoors will love this area.

The Cabins

Standard Cabins

All standard cabins are about 180 sq.ft so quite small. The storage unit across from the bed is shown open with three good sized drawers (unique for a Nile River Boat) some shelves a mini bar and a safe. The vanity table has a pop up mirror (shown here in the upright position). As you can see there is absolutely no counter space at all to put all your "stuff". There is a chair not pictured to one side of this storage unit.
All cabins two light weight robes and slippers. King and twin beds are available and twins can be pushed together. There is very little room on the window side of the bed it is tight. Individually controlled air conditioning.

The bathroom is small with only a shower no bathtub. The cabin had a wall mounted hairdryer these never work correctly so you need to bring your own hairdryer. There is a magnifying mirror that is nice. Stand toiletries like shampoo, body lotion and small bars of soap are included. Toiletries are replaced as used.

A single hanging closet with shelving on each side is in all the rooms. There are no drawers unless the particular decor of your cabin has some furniture with drawers. All rooms have a mini bar and safe. There is also a luggage rack with a large glass shelf for extra storage.

There are enough electrical outlets more than I would expect. The power is 220 volt so be sure you have dual voltage appliances.

Every room has a flat screen TV with six satellite channels and movie channels.

Presidential Suite Cabins

Nice large cabin with lots of space, more storage area, a sitting area, nice desk top for your computer and a private balcony on the front of the ship. If you are on this boat and can afford one of these cabins take it as the room will be wonderful. The bathroom is larger with a bigger sink unit a shelf for storage and a full sized bathtub.
