Sophisticated, Intimate Atmosphere

Join us aboard an intimate, elegant riverboat custom-designed for your cruising comfort… where you'll get to know your fellow guests

Sophisticated, Intimate Ambiance


Onboard our custom-designed riverboats, the ambiance is relaxed and congenial. Spacious cabins and suites... impeccable service with a smile... amenities of a top-flight hotel... gracious interior design... fine continental dining... and many other refined touches add up to a river cruising experience that's second to none.

On your riverboat, camaraderie among guests develops naturally and easily – everyone has space to relax comfortably. From our outside-facing cabins to our spacious Lounge and dining spaces, all are designed with contemporary elegance. You'll find fine brocade fabrics, real wood paneling, marble, and leather finishes crafted to maximize natural light and the wonderful views. Gather around the piano in the Lounge... stretch out on the Sun Deck as the crew arrives with your favorite drink... rejuvenate with a massage after a full day ashore... life is easy. And this is river cruising at its best.


Where Less is More

Our 80-meter Douro River riverboat accommodates no more than 84 guests, the fewest passengers in Europe. Along the Danube, the Rhine and the rivers of France, the newly renovated smaller riverboats in our Destination Fleet carry no more than 98 guests, while our longer ships carry no more than 130 – and they feature more 300-sq.-ft. suites than any other riverboats in Europe. In designing both Tauck Suites and our spacious cabins, we put all the square footage inside rather than trimming the interior in order to add step-out balconies. Over 80% of our cabins have French balconies with floor-to-ceiling windows.

Your surroundings are gracious, the service has style, and the atmosphere is both easygoing and congenial – all the right ingredients to make it easy to foster new friendships throughout your river cruise. Fewer passengers means more personal attention from the captain and the crew. And attentive service – they know your name. Tauck guests don't face the hassles of crowds and long lines. Dress is comfortable, unassuming and casual. The pace is unhurried. You know instantly that you are a welcomed guest from your first moment aboard.
