The boats usually had couples or more cabins, bathrooms and a cabin of servants.
The Dahabiya is beautifully crafted wooden ships and usually have 2 masted sailing boat that relies on wind power: Dahabiya have no engines except for a generator that makes electricity for light at the night. This will provide the quite silence with relaxation! Sailing on the dahabiya allows the sound of the river splashing against the boat on of the only sounds you will hear during your trip between luxor and Aswan, with watching the birds and hear their singing.
