Growing up in New England on the water, the Tauck family often enjoyed the open seas whenever they could. There’s nothing quite like sailing into a hidden harbor or island port to whet your appetite for an unforgettable adventure ashore. The experience is always different and exciting no matter how frequent the voyage, making it a great way to travel for mariners of every age and interest – and that was the thinking behind the launch of our Treasures small ship cruises in 1993 when we infused a lifelong passion for travel and hospitality into small ship cruise itineraries designed to delight our guests with the best of land by sea.
In 2023, we invite you and your clients to join us in celebrating 30 years of Small Ship Cruising inspired by destinations the world over – ships are handpicked for each destination – and every detail taken care of so you connect ashore with people, places, and cultural traditions.
Tauck’s exclusive access means unique experiences ashore, for closer connections and moments that will be remembered for a lifetime.
Averaging less than 200 guests onboard, our ships provide bigger experiences – and enjoy an ambiance that’s comfortable and relaxed.
Along with our Tauck Directors and local experts who share their insights and expertise, our ship Captains and crew make your clients' cruise most memorable with personalized service.
One upfront price – with everything included, from shore excursions to all gratuities.
Our first European small ship cruise was launched in 1993, Treasures of the Mediterranean – and 30 years later, it is a new cruise for a new generation.
Passenger cruising began in the Mediterranean nearly 200 years ago – then, as now, the scenic and historic treasures of Malta, Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica and Elba held a special allure for discerning travelers. Your clients set sail on a voyage of cultural exploration – where each new day promises a fresh place to discover and memorable experiences to share, in the very waters where the art of cruising began.
Our guests tell us that our Tauck Directors, Cruise Directors and ship staff are truly the Tauck Difference in cruising – and our Cruise Director Nick Coward shares a few thoughts in this short video about the peace of mind guests experience on a Tauck cruise, no matter where in the world you are. You are never alone when you’re traveling with Tauck.
