Salacia Luxury Cruise Ship

All Tips Included | 59 Passengers

Personal Impression

We were pleasantly surprised with the m/s Salacia. Not knowing what standards to expect we did not have high expectations. Since our trip the Salacia has been completely refurbished and those sailing on her now say she is really a beautiful ship.

The Public Rooms

The public rooms were nice particularly the main lounge upstairs. The layout of the ship is comfortable, the furnishing is very nice and the entire ship does have a quality feel. The ship did offer some evening entertainment. We had a whirling dervish who was excellent, pictured below.

The Cabins

The cabins are one Master Suite at 700 square feet, 18 Royal Suites at 300 square feet, 9 Staterooms at 225 square feet and 3 Single Cabins at 150 square feet. Really spacious cabins for a Nile River Cruise ship. The Master and Royal suites all have two bathrooms but they are very TINY. Small sink shower and toilet. Only one in the bathroom at a time. So having the two bathrooms makes a huge difference. The pictures below are PRIOR to the new refurbishment.

Food and Dining

The food went from average to a few outstanding dishes. They did pastas exceptionally well. Breakfast and lunch is buffet then they usually have a seated dinner at night. There are no choices the meal is just served. The outside pool area is very nice with adequate room and chairs for the number of guests. They do have entertainment on some nights on board. Gratuities are included so there is no tipping.
