The Ritz-Carlton is the precruise Tauck hotel for this route.
Yes, they will pick you up at the airport. As British says, if you didn't reserve your flight through Tauck, make sure they know your flight details well in advance.
Yes, they will provide transport for you and your luggage from the hotel to the ship.
Here's the "routine" for day 1 of the cruise: Go down to breakfast. You'll likely find you're eating with a big group of fellow Tauck passengers who also came in a day or two early. Meet your TDs, find out where and when to meet for transfer to the ship. They may also give you extra luggage tags in case you want them to take your carryon luggage. Go back to your room and get bags ready for pickup. Grab what ever you want to carry around while sightseeing on your own. Go down to reception and check out. Spend the day sightseeing on your own then be back at the hotel at the time designated. Ride to the ship, check in at the front desk, find your stateroom and your luggage will be waiting on your bed ready to unpack. Unpack, store your luggage away. Head back up to the lounge for happy hour.
