We have taken many ocean cruises, but this was our first river cruise and UniWorld provided an exceptional experience! From the moment we landed in Cairo everything was well organized and arranged. We were located at the Four Seasons Hotel for the Cairo portion of our trip, and the hotel definitely lived up to its reputation. There are some changes being made to one of the restaurants, but ...

Left out of Miami, easy boarding. Headed right to the bar and started making our way around the ship. It’s a good size ship with many bars and food options. After a day or two you start to remember where things are. The shows were great and there was always something to do. Friendly and helpful staff and clean public areas. Fun water slide, big pool and many hot tubs on decks. Bartenders were all ...

Well-Organized trip to Egypt and Jordan with Viking

My husband and I took Viking to Egypt and Jordan in early November. We spent 3 nights in Cairo, 7 nights on Viking Ra cruising along the Nile, 1 night back in Cairo, and 4 nights in post extension to Jordan. We booked this trip because so many people have said that now was the right time to see the ancient monuments without the usual crowd. They were partially right. Places like Karnak, Luxor ...

My wife and I joined other relatives for a 4-night cruise on the luxury cruise ship Oberoi Zahra from Luxor to Aswan during 23-27 Nov 2021. I enjoyed my river cruise on the Oberoi Zahra from Luxor to Aswan along the Nile river. It was mostly a 5-star experience. The Boat Manager Shamden Tamang does a good job overseeing operations and looking after passengers on the trip. My cabin was roomy ...

Egypt is an amazing place and Uniworld is a great way to see it. Our guide, Mohammed was knowledgeable, passionate, friendly and funny, and we always felt safe with him. We could not have had a better guide. The food was another highlight, with great meals and menus for both lunch and dinner. The staff was also terrific - always remembering our names and preferences, and going the extra mile to ...

The Uniworld 11 Night Splendors of Egypt & the Nile is a combination land tour and river cruise. We were on the second sailing of the SS Sphinx in early October 2021 and absolutely loved every minute on the ship. The ship is beautiful, spacious and brand new. The common areas are all beautiful with wood carvings, intricate tile designs and bright fabrics and these areas easily accommodated all ...

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 ...

The staff on the Sphinx as well as the land tours was absolutely fantastic! Our guide Ahmed was super knowledgable and helped us to learn so much about ancient Egypt. I was amazed how much we knew by the end of the trip. The Sphinx was a new, gorgeous boat with great amenities and fantastic food. The wait staff at the bars and restaurants was just amazing! Amr Badr was at the top of the ...

We chose this cruise because we heard Uniworld cruises provided a high level of luxury. It lived up to our expectations. The tour began in Cairo where we were lodged in the Nile Ritz-Carlton Hotel, with a view across the Nile River. The hotel was outstanding; excellent service at all levels, delicious, well prepared food and great comfort. From the hotel we started our cruise on the Sphinx ...
