Tauck River Cruises

Maritime Travel Perk: Exclusive curated shore event!

A luxury river cruise line targeted to older well-travelled professionals, Tauck is an allinclusive affair with many extras included in the upfront cost. Tauck's original four sister riverboats, the "Jewel Class" vessels, are 361 feet in length, but with capacity for only 118 passengers, much lower than the industry standard of 150. Tauck's next generation of ships, known as the "Inspiration Class", are each 433 feet long and carry just 130 passengers. Shipboard cabins on all boats are all outsides, most with floor-to-ceiling windows. The emphasis onboard is on relaxed elegance with such features as open dining and choice international menus. Shore excursions, often with a choice of sightseeing options in port, and some onshore dining, as well as wine with meals and gratuities are all included in the fare.

“My husband and I experienced a Rhine River cruise with Tauck recently and we had an amazing time! This is a river cruise line that doesn’t scrimp on the inclusions – we were surprised and delighted at every turn. All drinks (including real French champagne), multiple shore excursions, and even some off-ship meals are included. Everything was absolutely wonderful!”
