Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Presidential Suite

We chose Uniworld as friends said their experience is ultimate pleasure and luxury.

That said, we also wanted a total cultural experience of the wonders of Ancient Egypt. We read reviews that extolled the Uniworld Egyptologists as knowledgeable and entertaining. We were excited to experience this as we wondered at the marvels of the temples, tombs, etc.

This was a family trip and we loved the River Tosca and its aging gentility. The crew/staff were most accommodating and friendly, with attention to one’s every need.

Cabin Review

Presidential Suite

Our cabin was delightful but be prepared to experience Diesel engine noise and fumes as it is at the bows and the tie ups are often inconvenient. Egyptian whiskey, gin and vodka are included, as is laundry. The balcony is really tiny and we did not use it. The front windows look out over a working area and sometimes crew come there to pray.

Where to start. I recommend previous research
