Cruise the river Nile in style aboard the River Tosca, a recently built river cruise boat that allows its guests to follow in the wake of Cleopatra and Tutankhamen as it cruises down the world’s longest river.
The River Tosca perfectly captures the style of Egypt and the Nile, taking guests on an enriching river cruise adventure down the Nile in absolute luxury. This all-suite ship is designed with elegant wood finishes and public spaces. From the expansive Sun Deck complete with shaded cabanas for those sunny Nile days and a relaxing swimming pool, to the stylish lounge decorated with local Egyptian wares, every space on the River Tosca is inspired by the region. With a maximum capacity of 82 guests and a staff to guest ratio of almost 1:1, a cruise on the River Tosca is about as intimate and indulgent as it gets.
River Tosca Dining
The excellent restaurant is happy to structure mealtimes to suit the excursions that have been planned. The food on offer tends to be a generous buffet of Western and Egyptian cuisines for breakfast and lunch, with good meze available at the latter; and very English afternoon tea is also served, on the covered portion of the top deck. Dinner is a formal affair, with four courses, again with a selection of Egyptian and international foods to choose from.
River Tosca Entertainment
On alternate nights local performers – dancers, dervishes and musicians – come aboard to entertain guests. There are also Egyptian-themed nights, which involve staff musical performances and are followed by dancing.
River Tosca Spa
The staff includes a masseuse trained in Western and Thai techniques, and there is also a gym with several exercise machines to chose from.
River Tosca Enrichment
Such is the history of the surrounds that learning tends to occur on the frequent onshore excursions, accompanied by knowledgeable guides.
River Tosca Activities
Guests can partake in numerous guided shore excursions, mainly involving visits to both well-known and less famous temples and tombs. There is at least one available daily, and early starts are common, in order to avoid the heat of the day.
