Broadway on the Nile

Playbill Travel and the brightest stars of Broadway cruised the Nile River in a manner once reserved for queens and pharaohs. We set sail on Uniworld's two luxury riverboats, The River Tosca and S.S. Sphinx, from January 1-12, 2022.

For 12 adventure-filled days, Playbill Travel experienced Egypt and the Nile’s most wondrous sites in style and luxury. We had two pre-cruise nights at the Nile Ritz-Carlton Hotel, followed by a flight to Luxor where we boarded the River Tosca and the S.S. Sphinx. After our exciting eight-day voyage, we flew back to Cairo, followed by two post-cruise nights at the Nile Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

After embarking in Luxor, we set sail to visit Dendera, Kom Ombo, Aswan, Edfu and Esna, where we wandered amongst the towering ruins of the Temple of Karnak, the world’s largest ancient religious complex, and the entrancing Temple of Luxor. We visited temples dedicated to Hathor, Horus, and other mythological figures, and paid homage to the country’s first female ruler at the Temple of Hatshepsut. Upon returning to Cairo, we visited the famous Egyptian Museum and its stupendous and unrivaled collection of pharaonic artifacts, including treasures recovered from the tomb of King Tutankhamun, and journey to Giza to gaze upon the mighty ancient Pyramids and Sphinx – iconic images that continue to amaze.
