Tauck Launches 2016 River Cruising with New Ships, New Itinerary, New Experiences… and Lower Prices

Tauck has unveiled its 2016 river cruising plans, and next year the company will be debuting two new ships, a new itinerary along the Rhine and a number of new Tauck-exclusive onshore dining experiences – all at prices up to $1,200 per-couple lower than their 2015 rates.

According to CEO Dan Mahar, the price reductions are due entirely to recent foreign exchange gains made by the U.S. dollar against the euro, which Tauck didn’t hesitate to pass along to its customers.

“We’re incredibly proud of the value we deliver to our guests, and when opportunities arise to increase that value – whether it’s by enhancing the experience our guests enjoy, or by taking advantage of favorable exchange rates – we’re excited to do so. For 2016, we’ve been able to do both,” said Mahar.

“We’ve been Travel + Leisure magazine’s ‘World’s Best River Cruise Line’ in three of the last four years,” he continued, “and you don’t enjoy that kind of success in such a competitive environment without constantly working to deliver more to your guests.”
