Tauck small ship cruising
I recently returned from two back to back cruises with Tauck. Lisbon to Barcelona and then Copenhagen to Stockholm.
The Windstar Star Breeze:Ships personnel were great. Food was good, good variety. Canbins ok but shower on side corner wall. Bad design. Ventilation in room could not be regulated. A lot of group chicken dinners. Should have offered more local foods. Excursions were rushed. Minimum time to actually see the places we visited. It was look at this - ok let’s go. Bus tours were worthless. By the time local guide told you about a building it was past. Should have stopped more often. Would not reccommend Tauck small ship cruising.
Second trip Le Soleal(Ponant line) Ships personnel were great. Food was good, good variety. Cabins bad design. Had to rearrange beds to sit at desk. same comments as above. Just a bad experience. Next I willl look at Regent Seven Seas for a slightly larger ship but it too boasts luxury tours. Tauck wa anything but luxury except the price for mediocre tour.
