New Uniworld river cruises will take you to the pyramids and the Taj Majal
Despite a tumultuous few years for travel – including restrictions lasting until 2022 – cruising is back and perhaps bigger than ever, especially with more and more luxury ships hitting the water.
Now you can add more to your travel bucket list. Luxury river cruise operator Uniworld is introducing two all-new river cruises that will explore ancient wonders, Travel Pulse reports. As part of its Exotics collection for 2023, the SS Sphinx and the Ganges Voyager II will bring passengers through Egypt and India as part of their respective itineraries.
“We are excited to extend some of our most popular offerings next year,” President and CEO Ellen Bettridge said, according to the outlet. “Many of our customers are looking for unforgettable experiences next year, while others want to spend time traveling with family or multi-generational groups, introducing a truly amazing cruise and train journey across India, more of mystery cruises and an itinerary packed with family fun and the historical wonders of Egypt seemed like a natural step. We are constantly striving to anticipate customer needs and innovate accordingly, and we know that these new itineraries will really resonate.
The Ganges Voyager II will embark on an immersive 16-day journey in October 2023 and it also includes a luxury private train ride through the Golden Triangle and more. You’ll also spend two nights at Oberoi hotels in New Delhi and Mumbai, during which you’ll experience the grand Taj Mahal, Amber Fort, and Ranthambore National Park, the latter home to the largest population of Bengal tigers in the world. .
As for the trip through Egypt, which includes a 12-day navigation along the Nile, the SS Sphinx will visit the greatest wonders of the country, including the pyramids, the temple of Karnak, the valley of the kings and the temple of Luxor . You’ll also have plenty to do on board the ship with gourmet restaurants, a swimming pool, a massage room and 42 suites – where, naturally, you’ll sleep on fine Egyptian cotton.
