European River Cruises For Families Only

Family River Cruising

Award-Winning Family River Cruises

Tauck Bridges has been designing and guiding family river cruises for 7+ years – all-inclusive family vacations with exciting shore excursions, onboard activities, and exclusive experiences all designed with families in mind.

Here are some reasons why our river cruises are an extraordinary way to explore the heart of Europe with your loved ones…


A Great Way to Travel at Any Age   

A Great Way to Travel at Any Age

Kids love all the kid-friendly activities and excursions, onboard amenities, and sharing the fun with other kids their age, while parents and grandparents appreciate the ease, service, and elegance of river cruising – and the fact that virtually every expense is included. One upfront price covers all shore excursions led by our handpicked local guides and Tauck Directors (the best in the business)… unlimited complimentary beverages aboard ship… gratuities for Tauck Directors, the Tauck Cruise Director, ship staff, local guides, and drivers… and much more. There are no options sold on our cruises and no surprise expenses. Without having to reach for your wallet constantly, you can enjoy your vacation a lot more.

An Easy and Flexible Way to Travel with Kids

On river cruises, your “hotel” comes along with you as you travel, so your family unpacks only once and doesn’t pack up again until it’s time to go home. Our family river cruises also offer great flexibility and variety – just the right balance of shared activities and downtime; we thoughtfully choreograph your trip with a blend of culturally–immersive guided sightseeing ashore, organized onboard fun, and time for just relaxing and doing as your family pleases.

An Incredible Way to See Europe

On a Tauck Bridges family river cruise, you expose your children or grandchildren to the history, food, culture and beauty of Europe in ways the kids can appreciate. Sail right into the heart of historic European cities and quaint towns with our best-in-class Tauck Directors, who make sure you all see, learn and do more than you ever could on your own. We orchestrate these culturally enriching family-friendly vacations thoughtfully so the whole family can enjoy them together.

      
Immersive Destination Experiences
 
 

Immersive Destination Experiences

Tauck Bridges specializes in family vacations designed to delight everyone from kids to grandparents. Each of our four river cruise itineraries incorporates interactive fun and hands-on activities – cooking classes, storytelling, cultural explorations, exclusive experiences – that are fun for every age and generation to do together.

Dock on the River Danube and learn medieval games at Devin Palace, explore an amazing maze dating back to 1698, and investigate real catacombs. On the Rhine, live like the French for a day in Strasbourg… spend an evening at Reichenstein Castle, complete with working drawbridge… and ride bikes by the river. Sail down the Rhône to Provence to play pétanque with the locals… cook at culinary school… and enjoy lunch and a cowboy show on a family ranch. Or cruise up the Seine to Normandy for a hands-on experience of the vehicles, radios, and battle gear of World War II to complement your visit to the D-Day beaches…

      
Onboard Pleasures
 

Onboard Pleasures

The fun starts as soon as your family steps aboard a Tauck riverboat. Days are action-packed, and kids are never bored! From onboard local entertainment to beautifully designed shared spaces to panoramic views, a Tauck Bridges river cruise makes everyone in the family happy. We have the most 300-sq.-ft. suites on Europe’s waterways; each spacious suite is equipped with a sofa bed, so they’re great for families. In addition, our riverboats offer a casual dining spot as an alternative to the main Compass Rose restaurant – something younger passengers really appreciate!

No Single Supplement in Category 1 Staterooms
