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 ...

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 ...

I had the absolute pleasure to be on board for the Maiden Voyage of the SS Sphinx and the first for the crew in a very long time, so much so that when passing communities there were cheers, and each boat we passed greeted with horn blasts, a real celebration. The decor of the ship has been matched perfectly with the traditional vibrant colours, textures and designs that are synonymous with ...

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 ...

We like the top notch cruise experience that Uniworld provides. Embarkation was easy & quick. It is a beautiful ship & we were upgraded from a regular suite to a grand suite. I booked a suite as I wanted that large fabulous double sink bathroom; the grand suite has a tub in addition to a fabulous shower. Uniworld is very accommodating to any reasonable request. We had the best butler that brought ...

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 ...
