Al fresco dining on your ship’s Sun Deck is always an option when the weather’s fine and when it is time to eat, you’ll enjoy more freedom as dining times are always flexible, with an open seating policy in place. Whether during your meal or when it comes to after-dinner drinks or even a relaxing afternoon coffee, unlimited complimentary beverages are always available throughout your ship.
The exact facilities and amenities you can enjoy depend on which Tauck river cruise ship you choose but one thing they all have in common is an enriching on-board entertainment programme involving guest lectures, local entertainment and culinary demonstrations. Complimentary internet use is available and to help you stay active, there’s a fully-equipped fitness centre, putting green and bicycles are available for passengers to take ashore.
