We originally were going on Viking (because we had heard the name) but they could not accommodate us in the hotel stay. Our agent suggested Tauck. What a blessing! We (my sister and our adult sons) loved our Tauck cruise. The ship was new and comfortable. Our rooms very comfortable. Food, drinks, staff, etc. all excellent. Having all-inclusive was great. No extra charges at any time. Not even for a massage tip. So nice. They also gave us extra special touches such as picking up toilet fees, or little treats in town. The boys were among the youngest on the ship, 30 and 28 but fit right in with everything we did. Most nights were were too tired for the evening music, but throughly enjoyed the special guest musicians one night and our crew show another evening. Small touches such as a wet towel and special cookies coming back on board after excursions were appreciated too. The excursions were all fun too. We enjoyed "Tauck Fit" hiking and biking. We all look forward to another adventure with Tauck. We had cabin 203 and 105. We did not want an upper deck cabin because we were concerned about any noise that might come from the sun deck.
Cabin was wonderful. I was concerned if being close to the lobby would be a concern and it was actually great. I was able to quickly go back to the room from dining or lounge and back. I turned on the fan high (plus my sound machine) and did not have any problems with noise for sleeping (I'm a light sleeper) There was plenty of storage for two. We did not want an upper deck cabin because we were concerned about any noise that might come from the sun deck. I'm curious if there were any noise issues with those rooms.
