My husband taught world history for 33 years and always wanted to go to Egypt. Covid numbers wow going down in May of 2021 when we saw an ad for this fabulous cruise. We held or breaths and booked it, and we are sooooo happy we did. It was SS Sphinx maiden cruise and although they were working it a few bugs, the experience was exquisite. Our md-level suite was like a beautiful hotel room. There ...

My husband and I booked our trip in April of 2021 directly with Uniworld and took advantage of a sale Uniworld was having on the River Tosca ship for the 11-Night Splendors of Egypt & the Nile River cruise starting September 25th. This cruise, in fact, would be the first sailing in 18 months for Uniworld in Egypt since the pandemic had started. We kept our fingers crossed up until the start of the ...

My wife and I had a very enjoyable experience on the UniWorld Splendors of Egypt and the Nile aboard the S.S. Sphinx in September/October 2021, the ship’s maiden voyage. Our trip started with a 6 day/5 night pre-trip extension to Jordan, which could have been a stand alone trip itself. While in Amman, we stayed at the luxurious St. Regis Hotel. Our guide, Sofian Nawash, traveled with our group ...

We had a fantastic time on the SS Sphinx. We were on the maiden voyage and loved the new ship. There are a few kinks in some of the rooms that the crew is working very hard to fix but like anything new, there are bound to be a few. The rooms are beautiful and very spacious! Our Egyptologists were very knowledgeable, helpful, personable and went out of their way to provide a top rate tour. ...

Ever since I was a child my Mother Adele spoke about travelling to Egypt, to see the ancients, to cruise the Nile the life blood of multiple countries, to see one of the seven wonders of the world.. My mother was a teacher when I was young but she always wanted to be an Archeologist, full Indian Jones style, to be submerged within a different culture, language and history and to discover the way ...

The Cruise Critic reviews helped me tremendously prior to taking my cruise so I am now giving back with my thoughts to help others! Unfortunately, our cruise did not have a good start- most of the passengers had booked this Nile River cruise based upon the cruise being on the brand new ship, the Sphinx. After unexpected fire damage on the Sphinx in December, we were told that our January cruise ...

Many days we were ‘on the bus’ very early – often between 6:30am-7:00. Some days were even earlier. We would go from breakfast (which had to be eaten by 6:00, to make it to the bus) until 2:00-2:30 without any food. One day our excursion went from 7:15am -3:00pm – NO FOOD. There were small mandarin oranges on the bus and on one occasion bananas. Thus, we were going 8-9 hours with NO FOOD. I ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted to see Egypt, and we found this cruise after a Uniworld cruise down the Danube. We had 2 days in Cairo with the tour guide before joining the boat. When we arrived on the ship we were welcomed by the crew and escorted to our cabins which were larger than expected, and very comfortable. The crew were very welcoming and helpful. We were welcomed and well ...

We recently returned from our Nile River cruise on the Viking Ra, October 1. It was an amazing, eye-opening experience! We traveled with dear friends, booked the cruise almost 2 years ago while on another cruise. Our husbands were thrilled, almost giddy with excitement at the thought of seeing the pyramids. The wives were a bit apprehensive and remained so until we arrived in Egypt. Yes, we did ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. Was absolutely blown away with our experience. Our exceptional Egyptologist guide Hazem Khalaf solidifies our experience . From the moment we arrived in Cairo we were well taken care of! The Uniworld staff took very good care of us. The Tosca staff whether it was attentive details to our stateroom or assistance from the front desk. Dining ...
