Broadway on the Nile

December 27, 2020 to January 07, 2021

Join Playbill Travel and the brightest stars of Broadway as we cruise 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 December 27, 2020-January 7, 2021.

Join Playbill Travel for 12 adventure-filled days, and experience Egypt and the Nile’s most wondrous sites in style and luxury. Before we set sail, we have one pre-cruise night at the Four Seasons at Nile Plaza, followed by a private, chartered flight to Luxor before we board the River Tosca and the S.S. Sphinx. After our exciting eight-day voyage, we’ll fly back to Cairo on a private, chartered flight, followed by three post-cruise nights at the Four Seasons at Nile Plaza

After embarking in Luxor, we are set to visit Dendera, Kom Ombo, Aswan, Edfu and Esna, where we’ll wander amongst the towering ruins of the Temple of Karnak, the world’s largest ancient religious complex, and the entrancing Temple of Luxor. We’ll visit temples dedicated to Hathor, Horus, and other mythological figures, and pay homage to the country’s first female rules at the Temple of Hatshepsut. Upon returning to Cairo, we’ll visit 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.

As always, Playbill Travel will bring along a wonderful lineup of Broadway talent to wow us with their incredible talent, both in Cairo at the Four Season at Nile Plaza and on the River Tosca and the S.S. Sphinx.
