Cheese and Chocolate - Yuletide River Cruise Through The Netherlands & Belgium

Review for ms Grace to Europe - River Cruise

I was on the December 20, 2022 Yuletide Spirit sailing on the ms Grace from Amsterdam to Brussels. It was an outstanding cruise featuring Winterfest in The Netherlands and Belgium. It wasn’t marketed as a Christmas market cruise, so the focus was a bit different although we did have the opportunity to visit a couple of winter festivals in The Netherlands and a few Christmas festivals and markets ...

We started in Dusseldorf (not in the options for embarkation above). The previous night the ship had been in an industrial area miles out, so I was expecting to pay for taxis, but on the day they had moved to a berth right in the heart of the old town. Here and in Cologne (where the towns are actually on the Rhine) Tauck had the prime spot to walk into town from. Unfortunately the weather at ...

Our Destination Seine Tauck tour departed Paris on 10/19/2022 and returned on the 29th. This company was so highly recommended by a personal friend that we decided to give Tauck a whirl. Tauck was to come into competition with the Crystal Danube cruise we took one year prior to the pandemic. WE found the service to be very uneven, the cruise was understaffed(not acceptable taking into ...

This was our first Tauck tour cruise highly recommended but many to us Having traveled extensively and been on many cruises, this was by far the worst experience The communication from the start was poor as Tauck sent an Email the day before stating they were changing the itinerary They knew many weeks before that the Rhine may not have been sailable Asking the day before a trip if ...

We did a fabulous Rhine river cruise with Tauck. We left from Basal Switzerland to Amsterdam. We felt Tauck provided fabulous service, a wonderful river boat and good excursions. Really 5 star. Joyce Taucks cruise director was fantastic. Dusaw Bajac the Maitre de on the ship saw that I got the perfect Strawberry drink after a previous one was not very good. He even sent a waiter to track ...

Wanted to visit Eastern Europe, and going solo, I wanted to feel secure. Having done one other lovely tour with Tauck , I felt they would do a good job and I was happily rewarded for my confidence in them. We started with a hotel stay and a few days in Romania. The hotel was well located and tours excellent! In fact, I had some of the best guides I’ve ever enjoyed anywhere, on this trip. Really ...

For our first foray back into cruising my DH and I chose a Tauck Rhône cruise “Savoring France” beginning with 2 nights in the Intercontinental Paris Opera. We began our Paris visit at a different hotel with 6 nights at The Peninsula so it was a nice touch at the beginning when Tauck still provided a transfer from CDG to that hotel. We were on our own to take an Uber over to the Tauck hotel but ...

We just had a river cruise with the Tauck on Ms Grace - Christmas Markets from Amsterdam to Brussels on December 6th 2021. And we had the best experience ever! It was not our first river cruise, we had done one before with Adventures by Disney. And I find these two companies comparable both by price and by the level of experience offered. We chose Tauck for the itinerary, as no one other ...

Xmas Markets, Beautiful Cities and Towns, and a Gorgeous Ship!

My best friend and I decided to do this Xmas Market cruise shortly after her husband died. We were fortunate to be able to book a lovely suite, 308, just several months before the cruise. Someone must have cancelled - lucky us! This was my fourth trip with Tauck and my friend's first. I expected it to be special and for all to go well and was not disappointed. She was amazed by the ship, the ...

This was our second experience with Tauck, the first being their Best of the Canadian Rockies tour. It was also our first river cruise. We chose this particular cruise because of the starting and ending cities, Prague and Budapest. We have always wanted to visit those cities. Based on our prior experience with Tauck we had high expectations. I have to say on this cruise Tauck far exceeded even ...
