Tauck has announced its 2016 solo traveller savings, and the company has again eliminated the single supplement on its Category 1 European riverboat cabins.
The waived single supplement applies to every Category 1 cabin on every riverboat and on every departure of every river cruise itinerary. In all, the single supplement is being waived on more than 220 Tauck river cruise departures for the coming year.
In addition, the company is reducing the single supplement by up to £650 on 170 departures of 60 itineraries to four continents.
Meanwhile, the company is enhancing its Bridges trips in Europe, the Americas and Africa with a range of activities designed to bring families closer together through shared experiences. The 2016 Bridges brochure is launched as the company sees strong growth across its 19 family excursions, with bookings up year-on-year and pre-season bookings for 2016 running well ahead of the same period last year.
Ray Steward, the company’s UK & Ireland country manager, said: “Demand for our multi-generational itineraries continues to increase and reflects the desire for families to reconnect and do fun things together when they are on holiday. All our trips are crafted to emphasise our belief in shared enrichment, with experiences and activities that every generation can enjoy. Our philosophy contrasts sharply with other family holiday options that provide ‘kids-only’ facilities and activities.”
Among the enhancements is a special winter holiday departure of the operator’s ‘Alpine Adventure’ exploration of Switzerland, Austria and Germany, with the eight-day itinerary modified to take advantage of the destination’s winter sport activities including sledding and tobogganing, downhill or cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ice-climbing.
Other special experiences include a rail journey on the Glacier Express train to St. Moritz, a visit to an Olympic ski jumping site, a horse-drawn carriage ride to fairytale-like Hohenschwangau Castle, and a five-course gala Christmas dinner. Details on the entire portfolio of these journeys are contained in a new 84-page brochure.
