The Sonesta St George along with all of the Sonesta cruises, provides a fun filled programme of events in the lounge and bar every evening. Ranging from a local Belly Dancer, to Nubian Folklore music and dancers, disco, and the very popular Galabaya Party, where you get the chance to dress up in traditional Egyptian costumes and have an evening of games, music, and fun along with your Tour Guide!
