The ship boasts 12 spacious 300-square-foot Tauck Suites, 20 225-square-foot cabins, six 200-square-foot cabins, and four 150-square foot cabins.
Wheelchair & Motorised Scooter
Wheelchairs and certain types of motorised scooters can be accommodated on some Tauck journeys. It is best that you inquire for the specific journey you are interested in. As a general rule, wheelchairs and motorized scooters are not accepted for Tauck’s international and exotic destinations. The international community does not adhere to the same accessibility standards that hotels, restaurants and public buildings do in the United States. That combined with tour itineraries that might require a considerable bit of walking in old historic city sections, in and around attractions, over cobblestone streets, up hills and climbing staircases make wheelchairs impractical to bring.
Collapsible wheelchairs are more widely accepted for Tauck journeys within the United States and Canada. But even to this, there are exceptions so it always is best to inquire to be certain. Motor coach space limitations make motorized scooters harder to accommodate on journeys, but there are certain model collapsible motorized scooters that can be accommodated on many of Tauck’s North American journeys. Again, it is best to inquire.
Tauck cannot provide wheelchairs to guests or wheelchair assistance during the journey. Persons needing such assistance must be accompanied by an able companion.
Regardless of destination, Tauck journeys are not appropriate for infants or children under 3 years of age.
Please note that guests must be 21 years of age and older in order to book their families' travel arrangements. Certain age recommendations and/or restrictions may apply to some of Tauck journeys. Please inquire at time of booking.
In compliance with their partner hotels and for the safety and security of our guests, children under 18 years of age must be booked into the same room as an accompanying adult.
Onboard entertainment includes enrichment lectures, piano music nightly, in-room movies, culinary demos, local entertainment and “themed” fun.
