Now that I am home I want to add that the disembarkation process was simple and the airport transport very organized. Every detail was so well managed by Tauck and the staff whether Scylla or Tauck...

Nearing the end of this lovely cruise and I must say, despite a very few service and food related minor issues the overall comparison to my Uniworld experience is very favorable with Tauck really...

So then the locks really are a non-issue. Just wear earplugs when you sleep and you are free to be on the lower sundeck anytime.

Another point of difference is that there are more lectures on board in addition to the port talks on Tauck vs Uniworld. We’ve a couple already. And as I write this I also recall that we had a...

The excursions have all been comparable with the exception of the dinner and performance in a palace in Vienna with Tauck. There was nothing like that on my Uniworld cruise. There also seems to be...

Tauck Esprit vs Uniworld River Queen
I am currently on Esprit Budapest to Amsterdam and cannot help but notice some significant differences between the 2 lines. My cruise on Uniworld was 2 years ago on the Rhine and Moselle. WiFi is...

Which tour was that? The one I am looking at is almost all 4S properties and a couple of lodges in more remote areas. No mention of Marriott.

Sounds like this wasn’t the right cruise for you as you stated earlier.

Interesting thread. If you had been to Paris before why didn’t you just skip the bus tour and do your own thing? The itinerary is sent to pax in advance so there shouldn’t be too many surprises. ...

I guess I am confused...I thought Fisherman’s Bastion was on the Buda side?

Anyone here actually take one of the air “cruises”? I am seriously considering a very interesting Four Seasons world journey next Fall. Would love to here any feedback regarding either company’s...

Which cruiseline are you booked with? I noticed my upcoming Tauck cruise specifies 1 checked bag weighing no more than 50 lbs. per person, plus any carry-ons. That's about twice the amount I would...
