The S.S. Sphinx offers two gourmet dining venues, a swimming pool, massage room and 42 gorgeously appointed suites.

Uniworld Sphinx sundeck

 

The S.S. Sphinx is the latest over-the-top ship from Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, which just took the top spot in Travel + Leisure's World's Best Awards. While it's not the first high-end ship on the storied river, Uniworld is aiming to set a new bar for luxury with its 84-passenger, 42-stateroom cruiser.

 

Uniworld Sphinx bistro

 

Uniworld's new super ship in Egypt, providing guests with the most luxurious way to sail along the Nile with its exquisite design and experiences they won't find anywhere else.

The eye-catching design of the Sphinx incorporates "locally sourced Egyptian artwork, fabrics and hand-carved furnishings," according to Uniworld, as well as sumptuous seating, rich colors, and marble-trimmed bathrooms.

 

Uniworld Sphinx bar

 

The maximalist decor carries through the ship's staterooms, all of which feature French balconies. Other this-must-be-Egypt features include carved wood ceiling and door panels, ornate furniture, and accent pieces like Arabic coffee sets. Bedrooms feature upholstered walls covered in blue Egyptian cotton and custom carpets.

 

Sphinx restaurant

 

The Sphinx has two onboard restaurants — including one al fresco option on the top deck — as well as a private dining room for small groups. Egyptian cuisine is a focus with "menus that reflect the destination," Uniworld says, paired with locally made wines. The ship also has a massage room, a gym, a small pool, and other spaces for lounging.
