Tauck Cruises

Tauck Cruises, a family-owned cruise line with more than 90 years of global guided-trip experience, has had a long history of providing the “ideal vacation” to its customers. Tauck began as a motor coach tour guide company in 1925 and, in 1992, began offering all-inclusive river cruises that combine the expertise of a Tauck land tour with all of the modern comforts of a European river cruise ship.

There is also a selection of small ship cruises available on a number of ships, chartered from other cruise lines such as Ponant and Windstar. Boasting a fleet of nine river ships (and 17 chartered small ships), the intimate capacity of these vessels provides for a truly one of a kind experience. What sets Tauck Cruises apart is that while on a Tauck cruise, you’ll get to experience much more than you would on any other typical cruise.

With Tauck, you will experience several destinations while only having to unpack once. Your knowledgeable and experienced Tauck Director will handle all of the details from handling your luggage to arranging your on-tour transportation so you can focus on enjoying your vacation.

You’ll get to choose how you spend your excursions (i.e. sightseeing or biking? The choice is yours) and every one of their river cruise brochures list the activity and pace level of each excursion so you’ll know exactly what to expect. Thanks to the calm flow of the European rivers, you’ll never have to worry about seasickness or anything at all, for that matter, with Tauck’s “Peace of Mind Traveling” experience.

You’ll be subjected to nonstop, beautiful scenery as long as the weather stays clear. Best of all, Tauck Cruises features off-boat dining, so you can experience meals at local restaurants, markets, taverns, wineries, castles, palaces or in even in the private home of one of the local residents!

Intimate and premium ships carry only 98 to 310 passengers, so you can rest assured that you will receive only the finest service with Tauck Cruises. You can expect an unhurried onboard atmosphere, where you can be comfortable and casual with other like-minded travelers, the captain, crew and your Tauck directors. Even if you’re traveling alone – and on select cruises, Tauck waives the single supplement rate – you won’t feel like you’re alone at all.

Tauck long made its name on European tours that provide for your every desire and these ships carry on that tradition. The accommodations onboard Tauck ships reflect those of an upscale hotel. All river ship cabins face outside and 80% of them feature a French balcony or sliding glass door. Compared to other European river cruises, Tauck river cruise ships have the most 300-sq. foot suites and fewer passengers aboard ships of comparable size.

Aside from sailing in ultimate comfort, you will be able to enjoy expertly prepared meals all while cruising up and down the rivers of Europe. Dining onboard Tauck river cruises encompasses a mixture of buffet service and a la carte menus of exquisite European cuisine in anFine Cheeses of Europe open-seating fashion. Dine when you want with whomever you want. Every cruise features offboard dining which is an experience not to be missed. Included in the price of every Tauck river cruise are dinners at local eateries scattered throughout the entire length of a journey.

Just like the land tours that are associated with the Tauck name, there is a Tauck cruise for everyone. Whether you want to explore the beautiful French countryside, the lush German landscape or the wonders of the northern Netherlands on a river cruise, or discover the Galapagos on a small ship cruise, it is all available in one form or another onboard a Tauck river cruise ship. Activities on these itineraries will cater to all walks of life. Nature, architecture, artwork, food and drink are all areas that you can explore as you sail across the continents.

There are also plenty of activities to participate in while onboard. Join your fellow guests for daily cocktail hour, break a sweat in the gym, visit the ship’s bridge or take a kayak off the ship’s stern. Most ships also feature a panoramic sun deck with a plunge pool, hot tub and putting green for your leisure. Alternatively, you may tune into some regionally-inspired onboard entertainment; enjoy the talents of the onboard pianist, broaden your horizons with an enrichment lecture or take part in a unique culinary demonstration.

American Discount Cruises & Travel is proud to offer the best value and service possible on all Tauck cruises booked with us. Powered by our team of expert travel agents, we're sure to exceed your expectations when booking your next Tauck cruise!

What's New for Tauck Cruises?

In 2017, Tauck Cruises redesigned two of its riverboats, ms Emerald and ms Sapphire, to have an updated deck plan featuring 70% of cabins that measure in 225-sq. feet or more. Both ships were also redesigned to hold only 98 passengers each to bring you the most intimate and personal river sailing experience (while similar ships hold 160 passengers). In 2018, ms Esprit and ms Treasures will undergo a similar refurbishment. All four of these ships will feature amenities including brocade upholstery, spacious walk-in closets and large marbled bathrooms with rainfall shower heads. 85% of cabins will have French balconies with floor-to-ceiling windows.

A fifth Jewel-class ship will join the Tauck Cruises fleet in early 2015, the 118-guest ms Esprit. An additional two unnamed Inspiration-class ships are going to debut for Tauck during 2016.

2014 was a big year for Tauck Cruises. Launching during that year were ms Inspire and ms Savor, bringing the fleet's total to six ships. Despite being larger than previous Tauck ships, guest capacity of the new ships remained at a minimum, to allow for personalized and individualized experience. The highlight of these ships is the Loft Suites, two-floor suites that will allow guests the most stateroom space on the European rivers.
