Egypt Boutique River Cruises “Egypt is the gift of the Nile... Nowhere are there so many marvelous things as in Egypt, nor in the whole world besides are to be seen so many things of unspeakable greatness,” wrote the Greek scholar Herodotus in 425 BC. Egypt has stunned and delighted its visitors for millennia, and the Nile River is the gateway to its many gems and one-of-a-kind treasures. A Nile River cruise offers a whole new perspective on Egypt. Traveling onboard a Uniworld ship lets you experience the heart and soul of this amazing country, as many of Egypt’s cities and towns developed along the Nile. The Nile has long been a reflection of Egypt’s history and destiny—an economic lifeline, a great highway to conquest, and a source of inspiration throughout the centuries—and now it’s your turn to be inspired at every turn by its powerful myths, ancient history, and spiritual wonders. From grand colonnaded temples to bustling marketplaces to rural villages where life exists much as it did thousands of years ago, a cruise along the Nile is like watching 5,000 years of culture unfold before your eyes.
