Small Ship Cruising and River Cruises

Inspirational cruising... and the promise of fun

Cruise travel at its best. What makes Tauck's Small Ship Cruising and River Cruising unique is our focus on the destination – in scenic ports of call that connect you with people and places... moving, compelling and heart-warming experiences onboard and ashore... inspiration through Tauck's cruise travel. We cast anchor in pristine bays, off island beaches and at docks accustomed to personal yachts... in small towns and villages along the great rivers of Europe... and in some of the world's favorite cities. Our time ashore is enriched by in-depth cultural exploration and insider access that ensures up-close-and-personal connections with the locals and daily life. Our cruise travel adventures include guided sightseeing with local experts such as naturalists, historians, and accomplished lecturers. You'll dine on regional cuisine on land at aboard ship that showcases specialties of the destination. And after a day of extraordinary sightseeing, we welcome you back onboard our hand-picked vessels for warm camaraderie and lively conversation that's inherent on every Tauck cruise travel experience. The stories are endless, the memories are timeless and the connections priceless.

And now, meet our ships.

    The difference in Tauck's small ship cruise travel lies in the choreography of the total cruise travel experience – the combination of personalized cruising with cultural land exploration. How you spend your days ashore – where you go, what you do, who you meet – that's the Tauck difference. From the moment you step ashore, our 85 years of expertise on land ensures that on every cruise travel day, every moment of your shore excursions (all included in the price) count! Smaller ships hold fewer passengers, which means more personal attention from the captain and the crew – you'll find the on-board atmosphere to be both club-like and comfortable. The pace is more relaxed, the conversations are richer, and the day-to-day experiences are shared with like-minded travelers.

    The heart of history meets the art of sophisticated river cruise travel aboard Tauck's river cruises. Experience the Tauck difference on cruise travel days along great European waterways from the Rhine to the Danube, from the canals of the Netherlands to the Rhône, along the Main, the Moselle and the Saône... You'll cruise aboard spacious riverboats that are custom designed to meet American standards with well appointed outside facing cabins and suites, a choice of on-board dining venues, complimentary wine with dinner, fitness centers and attentive personal service from Tauck's staff and the ship's crew. Ancient civilizations beckon on cruise travel days along the River Nile in Egypt and China's Yangtze River on Tauck's Exotic journeys, where 3- and 4-night river cruise travel enhances our land journeys.
