Abercrombie & Kent gives Nile cruiser a makeover

Abercrombie & Kent is renovating the largest of its fleet of four Nile cruise ships, the 80-passenger Sun Boat IV, in an Egyptian-flavored Art Deco style.

With the redesign, A&K is making a departure from its previous, more subdued style. Before, the Sun Boat IV was done in a sophisticated mix of creams, beiges and sand tones, said Pamela Lassers, A&Ks director of media relations. It was much more neutral in color. Now it uses much bolder colors and all these Egyptian motifs in a Deco style. It will be a style that makes the Sun Boat unique.

A&Ks vice chairman, Jorie Butler Kent, is collaborating on the interior design with Egyptian designer Mohammed Noaman. It will include floor-to-ceiling windows in the cabins on the main deck, the bridge deck and the promenade deck, as well as teak flooring in all the outdoor areas and teak mixed with Egyptian marble on the floors of the sun deck.

The refurbishments are scheduled to be finished in mid-September.
