Tauck Cruising consists of two separate lines: Tauck River Cruising that takes you through the great rivers of Europe, and Tauck Small Ship Cruising that sails over the oceans to sensational locations in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Alaska and the Dalmatian Coast, plus many more!

The crew at Tauck Cruising are known for what they call “little Tauck touches”, making sure that you get the most out of your cruise and ports by incorporating a personal and friendly touch into all aspects of service. It’s not unusual to have the cruise directors join guests for a day on shore to help navigate the new and exciting place that they’re visiting. With ships that hold hundreds, not thousands, of people, passengers are able to bond with likeminded travellers and be served by staff who know everyone’s name!

One of the highlights of Tauck Cruising’s program is the all-inclusive price, which encompasses all gratuities, most on board and onshore meals, entertainment, and port excursions. The smaller size of Tauck’s ships is another advantage, as passengers are also able to visit locations that bigger ships simply can’t get into. Tauck’s award-winning river cruises sail up the great Danube and Rhine, as well as France’s Rhône and Seine, giving guests a unique perspective of the scenic locations along their banks.

Many of the Tauck River Cruises and Small Ship cruises are not suited to children, but the cruise line does have a number of specially designed, family-friendly river cruise itineraries as part of the Tauck Bridges program. Catering to children and teens, these itineraries involve fun activities that will get the whole family involved and create lasting memories. Cycling through London’s Royal Parks… hot air ballooning over the Serengeti… it’s no wonder that Tauck Bridges was voted the “World’s Best River Cruise Line for Families” by Travel Weekly in 2011 and 2012! Tauck Cruising is also doubling the number of family cruises from 10 to 20 in 2017.


Thanks to Tauck’s all-inclusive pricing, there will be no hidden costs when it comes to dining on board or on shore. Guests can either dine at Arthur’s Bistro, which offers a continental breakfast plus casual lunch and dinner options, or at the ship’s main dining room, the Compass Rose. Chefs prepare the meals on board and reflect regional flavours. On shore, Tauck guests are treated to local specialties at authentic restaurants and gain exclusive access to private castles, family-owned farms, historic châteaux and other sites not open to the general public for a one-of-a-kind dining experience!

Activities & Entertainment

Tauck’s river and ocean cruising itineraries encourage passengers to journey off the ship and immerse themselves in the local lifestyle and history, so all of the onboard activities aim to showcase each region’s personality. There are not any large-scale productions that are commonly found on larger ships. Rather, each night you’re invited to culturally enriching, intimate shows that take place in the Panorama Lounge and are usually performed by local entertainers. There’s also a nightly piano recital. During the day you can then learn about each destination and gain a cultural and historical appreciation through the onboard lectures, keep active in the ship’s fitness facilities or enjoy the fresh air on the sun deck.
