Onboard Our Small Ships

Guests onboard

Tauck Small Ship Cruising combines the rewards of sailing aboard a private yacht and comfortable expeditionary ships with Tauck’s signature all-included sightseeing and destination expertise ashore. Handpicked for each destination and designed to access ports the bigger vessels can’t, our small ships set sail on voyages of discovery from the Aegean to the Baltics, and from Asia to Antarctica. And from your first moment aboard until you disembark at the conclusion of your Tauck small ship cruise, you are a welcomed guest... enjoying gracious surroundings, impeccable service, and a relaxed, congenial shipboard lifestyle that makes it easy to foster new friendships and have the time of your life...

The Tauck Small Ship Cruising Experience

  • Our small ships are selected especially for cruising in the regions they sail to
  • Smaller ships hold fewer passengers; with just 40 to 264 guests aboard, our yachts and expeditionary vessels offer intimate, sophisticated cruising, more personal attention and thoughtful service, and more space per guest (Note: Guests may all be part of the Tauck group, or the cruise may be a shared ship experience with non-Tauck guests aboard as well)
  • Life aboard ship is easygoing and congenial... the pace is unhurried, the ambiance relaxed, dress is "smart casual" and comfortable... and getting to know your fellow cruisers – as well as your captain and crew – couldn't be easier
  • You'll enjoy an intimate atmosphere onboard... and without the crowds or lines you'd face with a larger vessel, it's easy to get on and off your ship for our private shore excursions filled with exclusive experiences
  • Onboard water-view dining on our ships features indoor and outdoor open seating and freshly prepared meals
  • Aboard ship, enjoy a daily cocktail hour; alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are also available throughout the day
  • Outside-facing staterooms for every Tauck guest on every ship ensure panoramic views from the privacy of your stateroom
  • Onboard experts who sail along with you bring a whole new dimension of discovery to your cruise
  • With our flexible, yacht-like cruising, you can often swim right off the ship’s stern; kayak or take a Zodiac ashore; or visit the bridge
  • Guided sightseeing with our local guides and experts on our all-included shore excursions lets you see the world through their experienced eyes
  • On our exclusive Earth Journeys cruises - created by Tauck and the natural history experts from BBC Earth - you'll enjoy custom-made film vignettes, access to special field equipment "gadgets," and educational touches you can't get anywhere else
