Earlier this week, Tauck was voted by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine as the “World’s Best River Cruise Line” during the publication’s annual roundup of the best in travel.
Readers chose Tauck based on criteria derived from six categories that included overall service, value, itineraries and destinations, activities, cabins, and dining.
“Tauck river cruises are crafted and choreographed to be complete destination experiences. For us to excel in the Travel + Leisure survey across such broad criteria affirms that we’re doing an exceptional job in delivering every element of the cruise experience,” said Tauck’s CEO Dan Mahar. “We have beautiful ships, of course, but it’s far more than that. We’re delivering compelling itineraries and unique shore excursions that totally ‘wow’ our guests. We’re providing an intimate, relaxing atmosphere aboard our ships. And we’re backing it all with the very highest levels of service and value.”
Next year, Tauck is planning a major expansion that includes the addition of two brand-new riverboats and four new itineraries. The line currently has a fleet of four Jewel Class river cruise vessels, each of which carry just 118 guests for a higher degree of onboard intimacy and sails 15 all-inclusive voyages throughout Europe.
Mahar was quick to praise his onboard team for the award. Tauck river cruises typically consist of three dedicated Tauck Directors that travel throughout the entire journey with their guests, in addition to a dedicated Cruise Director who is in charge of overseeing the entire experience aboard the river cruise ships.
“I simply couldn’t be prouder of our entire riverboat team,” said Mahar. “Our Cruise Directors and Tauck Directors, our office staff, our exceptional network of partners, and our travel agents all share in this honor. And of course, I’m incredibly grateful to our many past river cruise guests who placed their trust in Tauck by traveling with us, and who gave us such high scores in the survey.”
