“Nile Intrepid” will be a 5-star deluxe hotel with 4 decks. Her home port will be Cairo and she will be flying the flag of the Arabic Republic of Egypt.
The new floating hotel’s principal dimensions are:
- Classification length of 72 m

The hotel will be constructed at Maasara Shipyard in Cairo. The scope of PRS works includes technical documentation approval, a survey of the construction, and the assignment of PRS class.
