Trip of a lifetime!

This was THE trip of a lifetime. If you ever get a chance to go to Egypt, go immediately! It is amazing and the uniworld Cruise was top service! I would easily compare to that of Disney level guest service! World class food and accommodations!

Wonderful Boat

This quite an experience in Egypt. The boat was grande and the rooms huge. The staff was the most attentive of any ship I've been on. The food also was the best ever and we have traveled a lot. It was so good I recommended they make a cookbook to sell. I look forward to go on another trip with Uniworld when we go on our next outing.

Great boat!

By: BunnyOne

Reviewed on: 24 May 2019

The Tosca was a great boat. A little dated, as many have commented, but spacious, clean and well maintained. Crew were friendly and helpful and always smiling. The food was DELICIOUS - always lots of choice and really well prepared. The buffets (breakfast and lunch) were amazing and menu selection for dinner was broad - and you could order multiple dishes!! Gaining weight was the only problem we faced! The schedule as planned by Uniworld worked very well and avoided the heat of midday Egypt. Many complained about the very early wake up times for flights (to Luxor, to Abu Simbel, for international departures) but they were necessary and expected.....and some just complain about everything. Uniworld has definitely figured out how to move people around efficiently - buses were always on time, guides were always available, details were always as advised in advance. Read the reviews for additional info about your tour, they are helpful.

The trip was lovely, but I suggest you wait for Uniworld brings a new ship to the Nile. The crew made every effort to make the trip delightful.

Tosca cruise

By: Egypt

Reviewed on: 14 Jun 2019

The Tosca was an amazing cruise. The food was amazing, and the crew and guides excellent. The only issue we had - which has absolutely nothing to do with the every day activities - is UniWorld's definition of "Most all inclusive". On the ship beer and wine were only included with meals. If you had one in their lounge area they were charged. Silver Seas all inclusive meant it, all the time all well drinks. Also, on a trip to Egypt I would expect to see three things - Pyramids, King Tut's tomb, and the mummies. With UniWorld seeing the mummies and King Tut's tomb were extra. Only about $7US per person for each, but annoying for an expensive cruise, especially when staying at the fabulous Four Seasons in Cairo. On the way back from Luxor another "extra" was to see the old part of Cairo, the Coptic church and the synagogue. If not selected you had the choice of sitting in the lobby of the hotel until the rooms were ready! Really!

Five Star. Every aspect from housekeeping, dining and touring, to accommodations exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide, Ramadan, was very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to spend the week with him.

Fabulous Trip in Egypt

By: Penlady

My son and I loved this ship. We loved the old world charm of the public spaces and the rooms were very large for a river boat. The food was delicious with Egyptian choices and the staff was superb. Our Egyptologist was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It was a trip of a lifetime.
