The elegant Sun Goddess carries a maximum of only 60 guests in 30 spacious suites, providing an intimate and exceptionally comfortable experience on the world’s longest river. Featuring a separate sitting area and a balcony, each suite is a relaxing and sophisticated environment to observe 5,000 years of history unfolding along the Nile’s banks.
Recently renovated in 2019, Sun Goddess is awash in soothing natural wood tones and an inviting ambience that imbues all five decks. Of the ship’s many common spaces, the highlight is her expansive Sun Deck offering open-air amenities and panoramic views of the Nile. With lounge chairs shaded by umbrellas, alfresco dining, and a refreshing swimming pool and Jacuzzi, it’s an enticing place to rest and recharge between visits to the region’s extraordinary temples and tombs.
Inside the ship, there are equally inviting public spaces to enjoy, from the airy dining room lined with large portholes to the well-appointed lounge with its eye-catching golden bar. Order your favorite beverage and pull up a seat as our Egyptologists and certified photo instructors discuss the day’s adventures during Lindblad’s signature daily Recap.
30 outside suites
All of the ship's 30 spacious suites have a separate sitting area, both inside and out. Bathrooms are fitted with a full-sized bathtub and shower. There are 26 Presidential Suites, measuring 430 square feet, and two Executive Suites, measuring an impressive 646 square feet. All cabins also feature a mini-bar, safe, music system, TV, individual climate control, and hairdryer. Laundry service is included, and there’s ample storage.
The ship’s airy and elegant dining room accommodates the entire expedition community at the same time. Enjoy high-quality cuisine that’s focused on both local and Continental dishes, with options for vegetarians as well as other dietary needs. An expansive breakfast buffet is included daily while lunches and dinners are a mix of plated, family-style, or buffet depending on the day’s schedule.
Natural wood tones with pops of vibrant color, gold-toned décor accents, Egyptian-themed artwork, and potted palms set the stage for the graceful public spaces. Sip on a cocktail during the evening Recap in the lounge. Relax on the Sun Deck, enjoying alfresco dining and a dip in the swimming pool or Jacuzzi. Or recline in a lounge chair and simply observe life on the Nile as boats float by and oxen drink along the banks as they have for millennia.
Take a break from exploring to enjoy a massage treatment or a sauna in the Spa, or get in a workout in the Fitness Room, which includes a treadmill and exercise bike.
