Top Tauck Ships
Each journey with Tauck River Cruising is an all-inclusive affair. Included in the cost are all shore excursions (with a choice of sightseeing options in many cities, unusual for river cruising), onshore and offshore dining, crew gratuities, transfers, onboard lectures and entertainment, pre- or post-cruise hotel stays, and unlimited beer, wine and spirits.
The emphasis onboard is on relaxed elegance, just the right vibe as you meander through the European countryside past provincial villages, castles and other historic sites.
All dining is open-seating, with intimate table setups for two, four and six. Dining aboard each ship includes buffets, a choice of menus reflecting regional cuisines, and special theme dinners. Vegetarian meals are available, and a selection of international wines is always on offer. For a lighter, more casual dining option, all six ships also have a Lido Bar (called Arthur's on the two newest boats, as well as the refurbished vessels) with 180-degree glass walls.
Some meals are also offered off the ship, ranging from lunches in local restaurants to dinners in historic palaces. Meals are included in the cruise prices, although you can choose to dine independently on days the boat is docked in port longer.
Onboard entertainment comes in the form of lectures from the tour directors and experts, live music and/or a DJ. Folkloric music is also sometimes featured.
Tauck is targeting upscale, well-traveled professionals in the 55-and-older age range who are looking for an enriching cruise experience. It's also ideal for multigenerational family groups, with family-specific activities offered on select "Tauck Bridges" itineraries. Often, passengers have traveled through Europe before, and they see river cruising as a new way to experience iconic European cities at a more relaxed pace than what's offered by group touring.
