We were in 202 at the front, so of course there was no noise. However, other people to whom we spoke who were further back on the boat didn't say anything about noise.

My opinion is not to worry...

Incidentally, with regard to your signature about wine, at dinner it flowed like the Rhine. I don't drink wine, but my wife does and also most of our fellow passengers. They said it was regional to...

Absolutely. The ship holds relatively few passengers, even compared to other riverboats. Everything is very easy, very informal.

I'm glad you liked my pictures.

In the summer of 2010, we took a 14-day Mediterranean cruise on Celebrity's new Eclipse that started and ended in Southampton. We were advised by our travel agent that this UK-based ship was heavily...

We've been on 30 ocean cruises and 4 prior land tours with Tauck. Based on that perspective, the cabins were first rate as was the food. People could and would nit-pick, actually about anything, but...

Well, the bad news is it rained every day. The good news is that the rain runoff made the Rhine navigable. Two weeks earlier, it was still touch and go, and a number of people here expounded on all...

Yes, Carolyn. We were on the inside. Your boat came later and left earlier. Rudesheim was one of our favorite ports of call.

We just returned from Tauck's Christmas Markets cruise on the Rhine River. We enjoyed the elegance of the brand-new Tauck riverboat, MS Treasures. The boat was decorated beautifully for the holidays....

We just returned from Basel to Cologne. No problems whatever, plenty of water on the Rhine.

There are so many small things...accommodations to people's individual needs, little gifts, hands-on attention of the three T/D's and the one C/D, surprises, etc...that make the Tauck experience so...

The days are full, but you can really do anything you want to do on your own. For example, this cruise is devoted to the Christmas Markets. If you follow the Tauck plan, they bus you to the main area...

I'm on Tauck's Treasures at the moment, docked in Heidelberg. The dining room is not any noisier than you would find in a good restaurant, with people conversing and having some adult beverages....

Waiting to board Tauck's MS Treasures in Basel. According to the Tauck rep, river levels are fine, all the way to our ultimate destination in Cologne. Good to go. :-)

How widely are euros accepted in Basel just for walking around money, the Christmas Market, etc.? We'll be there only for a day before boarding the riverboat.

Is that one of your 17?

Will I love the ship? It's not 100% Tauck like the Swiss riverboats.

They don't want you to work for them. They want you to just keep coming back as a customer!

We're rank amateurs. This will be "only" #5 for us with Tauck, but our first on their riverboat....
