  1. I’m not sure if this interests you but it is a mobile hotspot that works pretty much everywhere. I always travel with it. It worked great on our river cruises and regular cruises.
  2. Yes, they will. You’ll see the Tauck rep table. Can’t miss it.
  3. They should have mailed you a booklet of all the itinerary and such a while ago. The tags are in the back of that TAke thatvwith you!
  4. Photo of all my luggage - all the blue. I carried on the small blue bag and backpack. Checked the large bag. Tauck Tags on all. My mom had separate luggage.
  5. If you check the ONE large bag EACH with Tauck, and carry on the rest, they won’t care. They will tell you to leave ALL luggage in your hotel room prior to boarding unless you DO want to carry it all day. I kept my backpack but let them take my large bag AND roller carryon bag. Tauck is VERY accommodating. Please don’t worry. Make sure you have the Tauck Tags on ALL of your luggage. It helps. I just photocopied it and put it in those plastic tags. Hope that helps.
  6. Not repetitive doing hop on hop off if you use it to get on and off. So pretty! We loved cruising the canals.
  7. I had a large suitcase, a small carryon roller and a backpack. Tauck does not care, the airline does. They just don’t want too many overweight large bags because it’s hard on staff. We checked our large bags and carried on the rest. Because you are flying business, you should be allowed more bags. I was under the 50 lb going but NOT coming back!🤣 Tauck gives you lots of goodies plus I bought a lot of great stuff! Enjoy your cruise! You will LOVE it I’m sure! Wave to my daughter who is doing a semester abroad in Vienna!🤗
  8. You can book it when you board. Just go to priority guest services. Enjoy the suite life!
  9. I did not see any, but did not look nor ask for them.
  10. The Haven can be more expensive than Princess suites depending upon the sailing, but the treatment and perks are amazing! If Princess joins HAL in these cut backs then, who knows...
  11. Not good. Poor form HAL!! For me it makes NCL Haven more attractive as it is a MUCH better experience. We really enjoy the specialty restaurant for breakfast. I hope Princess does not do away with this. I loved the HAL Pinnacle Grill breakfast! Wonderful experience. Shame on HAL! Don’t get any ideas Princess or some of us fickle cruisers may abandon ship!
  12. It was the free (if Tauck passenger) restaurant at the Intercontinental Hotel! So nice and peaceful.
  13. The menus change depending upon when you sail, so it is hard to tell what they will be. I did a live review and posted pics of menus. We were Club Class and also ate at specialty restaurants. Perhaps someone else can help with the main dining room menus. Here is a link to my review if interested.
  14. I’m not sure I answered this. Tauck staff have to enter codes to get your devices online. It takes only a minute for them to do this. Wi-Fi was slow. I think due to so many folks onboard using it. I took my own hot spot which worked better.
