A Great Way to See the World

Whichever Tauck small ship you sail on, and whoever joins you along the way, you'll always enjoy our flawless planning, impeccable service and award-winning onshore expertise. Not to mention exclusive onboard events and activities for Tauck guests like you. You'll feel the difference the moment you come aboard. A warm welcome, an intimate ambiance, a kinship shared among fellow explorers. You'll be in the company of like-minded travelers who have chosen their Tauck small ship cruise for the same reasons you did – mutual interests that foster camaraderie.

Venture out on a small ship handpicked for your journey, joined by no more than 40 to 300 guests. Your Tauck Director and ship's crew make you feel welcome, ensuring you are looked after onboard ship and on shore excursions. Make yourself at home, settling into a stateroom with a spectacular view, dining inside or al fresco, or stealing away to the top deck for an evening under the stars. Meet new friends in the inviting lounge, where conversation flows easily, like the voyage you're on – and the joy of travel comes to life in memorable moments and memories that last forever.

Discover a Fleet That's Born to Explore

It's a big world. And sometimes it takes a small ship to see it clearly. To find its heart, hidden away in unexpected coves, distant islands and Old World villages. So step onboard, and discover the joy of traveling small on ships handpicked to take advantage of everything your destination has to offer. Whenever possible, you'll dock directly at your port of call. No long lines, no hassle, no waiting to disembark. Because we believe in making every moment count.

When you cruise with Tauck, it's a journey of cultural exploration on land and sea, born of inspiration, designed with imagination. We've partnered with the world's finest shipbuilders and sailors to launch a fleet that takes you places the big ships can't. And we've creatively crafted our cruise itineraries so you'll experience the best of land from the sea, with Tauck's signature comforts, camaraderie and choices that make all the difference in an extraordinarily inclusive cruise.

Depending on the destination, you may sail on Ponant's new Explorer Series yachts, incomparably built for multi-sensory "green" cruising, their elegant Le Boréal or her sister ships, or their iconic three-masted schooner, Le Ponant. In the Galápagos, classic expeditionary yachts, Isabela II and Silver Galápagos, await. And a Windstar Motor Yacht is home in the Greek Isles.
