From the 18th century French influence started to find its way into the upper echelons of Egyptian society. This is reflected in the extravagance of the Louis XV style cabins and suites, exquisitely furnished in the rich, decorative style of this era with a regal palette of golden colors and tones, and delicate, dainty furniture.

The decor establishes a striking, sophisticated portrait of the romance and royal elegance of this period.
