Built in 1917, the S/S Karim Nile Paddle Steamer has undergone extensive renovations completed in October 1998. The boat was again renovated during 2009. This historic vessel was originally used by King Fuad I of Egypt and then by his son King Farouk. After the Egyptian revolution, the S/S Karim was used by the state and hosted President Gamal Abd El Nasser and later on President Anwar Al Sadat and his wife Gihan. Still powered by its original 1917 steam engine and stern quarter wheel paddles, the S/S Karim today combines the comfort of the modern era with the grandeur of the bygone past.

The boat is decorated in a period style with many subtle reminders of her distinguished past. The restaurant serves a splendid selection of both - international and Egyptian cuisine with buffet and waiter service. With 32 covers, this elegant g room allows for dining in one sitting and provides an intimate setting for dinner parties on board. The lounge bar offers a full international bar service, a library with a collection of books dating back to 1849, as well as a dance floor and music system.

Outside, the lower sun terrace provides a shaded area with elegant tables and chairs as well as deck bar service. The upper deck has sun loungers, a Jacuzzi pool and is home for the ship's steam funnel with original ship’s steam whistle. The reception area has colorful stained glass windows through to the restaurant and the reception provides full services including safe deposit boxes and international telephone.
