River Cruise Itinerary

For 12 adventure-filled days, experience Egypt and the Nile’s most wondrous sites in style and luxury.* Wander amongst the towering ruins of the Temple of Karnak, the world’s largest ancient religious complex, and the entrancing Temple of Luxor. Follow in the footsteps of renowned scholars and explorers as you venture forth into the Valley of the Kings, the ancient burial grounds of Egyptian royalty. This captivating itinerary begins and ends in Cairo, where you’ll visit the famous Egyptian Museum and its unrivaled collection of pharaonic artifacts. Journey to Giza to gaze upon the mighty ancient Pyramids and the Sphinx. Generations Family Program (select River Tosca sailings): These cruise/tours feature unique, fun-filled adventures for youngsters and are packed with culturally and historically significant experiences.

    Cairo
    Sat, Mar 01, 2025

  2. Day 2
    Cairo
    Sun, Mar 02, 2025
    The ancient quarter of Cairo is intense—the colors, the sounds, the density of people—and it’s likely been this way for thousands of years.

    Dendera, Cruising the Nile River, Luxor
    Tue, Mar 04, 2025
    Like its twin shrine, the Temple of Karnak, the Temple of Luxor stands on the site of ancient Thebes, the once flourishing capital of Egypt’s New Kingdom.

  6. Day 6
    Kom Ombo, Cruising the Nile River, Aswan
    Thu, Mar 06, 2025

The only negative we have - some of the tour operators were hard to understand.

This was our 4th Uniworld cruise and each has been a memorable experience. Staff and menu are both important aspects of a cruise, and Uniworld excels in both areas. Decor of both public areas and cabins is unique and tasteful, adding a special flavor to the cruise experience. Our cruise director on the SS Catherine was exception in terms of knowledge and service.

The trip up the Rhone River more than met our expectations (except it rained more than we liked!). It was a marvelous trip that the eight of us (four couples) enjoyed very much,

I thoroughly enjoyed this river cruise along the Danube. Everything was as advertised. We were met at the airport and arrived early to our ship. The Uniworld staff was amazing! I definitely recommend this cruise.

Small group on ship. Great for meeting new people. Great friendly professional staff. Excellent food. Depending on destinations excursions are good. This was our second time with Uniworld. First was Italy. That was unbelievable.

Both my husband and I agree we'll never travel with another river cruise line, other than Uniworld. Our second vacation provided the same constant service as the first. The hospitality, comfort and beauty of the suite cabins, the food prepared, and all the rest simply cannot be matched. Our expectations were met with perfection!

Uniworld once again provided the exemplary experience we've come to expect. It was maybe not quite as high level as two previous Uniworld cruises but almost.

The staff on the Marie Teresa is outstanding.

Uniworld takes care of you! The bottom line is we had a great trip, in great part, because of the attention the staff on the boat paid to us and all the other passengers.

Perfect trip and excellent service by Kia

Uniworld is a luxury river cruise and all tours were exceptional.

During COVID we were unsure about all the rules of the trip. Everything turned out OK. This cruise was above our expectations for itinerary, accommodations, food, and safety. Visiting southern France felt like being among friends. They appreciated us being there and we had an amazing time. This is our 5th trip with Uniworld and most of our fellow cruisers were also repeats.

Uniworld continues to provide an exceptional level of service. The food and beverages were excellent. The included excursions were very well done with relatively small groups and very entertaining local guides. This was our 5th Uniworld cruise and we were so happy that they continue to offer the personal attention and quality that we have grown to expect. This itinerary had a nice balance of some daytime sailing and very interesting excursions.
