Review of River Tosca

Uniworld River Tosca ship cruises on Nile River in Egypt, departing from Cairo (Luxor round-trip, with included flights and Cairo hotel packages). This Nile cruise ship is operated by the UNIWORLD's Egypt-based subsidiary company "Insight Tours". Uniworld (officially "Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection") is a major river cruise company part of The Travel Corporation group.

MS River Tosca cruise ship is a stylish Nile riverboat which offers most spacious staterooms which are all in Suite-cabin categories. Among the newest ships on river Nile, Tosca features a modern design, floor-to-ceiling windows in cabins and all public areas, full-service bars, a stylish lounge and a swimming pool-whirlpools area on its sun deck.

Like on most Nile cruises, Uniworld deals include Cairo pre- and post cruise hotel stays with organized tours. Their main purpose is for guests to recover from jet lag after the aircraft travel to Egypt, and of course, to tour the Pyramids. The Uniworld company arranges for its Egypt cruise passengers to stay at either Cairo Marriott Hotel (on Zamalek Island) or at the Four Seasons Hotel (Nile Plaza, Garden City). Being among the top-luxury hotels in Cairo, both Marriott and Four Seasons attract a mix of wealthy local residents, as well as visitors from Middle East countries and many business people from around the world. The land tour itinerary starts on the next morning, when you will meet the Uniworld's local staff and your fellow passengers. Most of the pyramid tours additionally offer stops at Memphis (the Old Kingdom's capital) and Saqqara, featuring the Djoser's Step Pyramid and the Giza pyramids. These excursions are always guided by a local, Egyptology-trained expert guide provided by the Uniworld company, who will be with you along the entire trip. Among the Cairo tour itinerary highlights are the Citadel (with the Alabaster Mosque built during the Ottoman times) and the Egyptian Museum (artifacts regarding an over 4500 years of history).

River Tosca river cruise prices are per person and based on double occupancy. These are only indicative Uniworld Egypt cruise rates. They might be different when you book your Uniworld Nile River cruise only or cruisetour deals, influenced by travel agency promotions, special offers and discounts, group travel booking or last-minute deals rates. Uniworld offers air-inclusive deals and pre/post cruise hotel packages as extensions (at additional cost).

River Tosca wiki

  • Cabin grades number: 5
  • Total number of cabins: 41 (all of which Suites, including 2 Presidential)
  • Restaurants: Restaurant (Main dining room)
  • Lounges & Bars: Main Lounge (featuring a full-service Bar)
  • Sun Deck (with a swimming pool, whirlpools and cabanas), Library, Boutique, Massage Room, Fitness center, Wireless Internet in public areas.
  • River Tosca is a step up from all the other ships (around 400) licensed to ply the Nile River. Beyond the chandeliers and marble floors, there is much attention to every detail carried through all public rooms. Lanterns, shishas (water pipes) and colonial-era prints add exotic flair to Uniworld's upscale decor. The staff consists mainly of Egyptians.
  • All suites feature French balconies and custom-made beds with fine linens. Other amenities include a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, individual climate-control, telephone, built-in closets, safe.
  • As on most Uniworld cruises, River Tosca passengers are well-traveled, in the 55+ category. Egypt is a Muslim country, so while swimsuits and shorts are fine on board, women will have to cover up when touring.
  • Itineraries on Lake Nasser and Nile river cruises in Egypt operated by other major lines are offered on the riverboats Kasr IbrimMayfair, Steigenberger Omar El Khayam (chartered mostly by Viking and Avalon) and Sonesta St George.
