I gave Riviera Cruises the worst ever food rating, well here’s some good news for them Uniworld wins hands down for the tasteless school dinners they served up. Crew were lovely and attentive , ship is new so really nice but the fine dinning you expect For the money they charge is missing. I could write a short novel about the crap they served up but I guess you get the picture. The tours were ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

A beautiful ship with a excellent staff. We were in a suite. Although by necessity small, the room is very well thought out. Large windows make up for the lack of a balcony. You can control just about everything (tv, lights, windows) from your bed. Very comfortable bed. Excellent shower. Service was top notch. Plenty of staff around and always willing to help. There were only 56 guests on our ...

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 ...

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 ...
