If the situation in Egypt continues to escalate (unstable government) what will Uniworld do for booked guests?
Thank you for your posts regarding Tuesday's protest demonstration in Cairo. Please be assured that the safety and security of our guests, crew and vessels are our top priorities.Thank you for the response. What about security at the Cairo Marriott? It's closeby to Tehar square. Can Uniworld confirm this as well for the selected hotel property? Is it possible for Uniworld to consider an alternative away from potential protests/violence?
At the present time our Egypt programs are operating as planned without incident, and we are monitoring the situation along with our ground operator in Cairo to ensure the safe and smooth operation of the programs. Our ground operator has reported today that all is calm in Cairo, and the central square is open without any police restrictions. Our guests in Cairo enjoyed their visit to the Egyptian Museum today on schedule.
We are continuously monitoring the situation in Cairo, and we anticipate our Egypt programs will continue to operate as orignally planned. If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact your Travel Professional or Uniworld at [email protected].
Thank you very much, and we look forward to welcoming you to Egypt.

Thank you for the response. What about security at the Cairo Marriott? It's closeby to Tehar square. Can Uniworld confirm this as well for the selected hotel property? Is it possible for Uniworld to consider an alternative away from potential protests/violence?Dear Cruzerca,
OP was right that as long as you can go legally (no govt. advice to avoid) then the operator has the right to expect that you will fulfill your part of the contract and they are certainly not going to write anything here on CC that could have legal ramifications later IMHOBowie, agree with most of what you said. However we have to also consider there is a big difference between DC and a large city in the Middle East. Both have potential for extremists, radicals etc. But a big difference if something were to unfold and
