The Future of Cruising

 Future of Travel (Part 5]: Cruises


When a newspaper killed off the very-much alive Mark Twain, he wrote "Rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated." Many are writing-off the cruise industry, but I disagree.  It will once again re-invent itself to adjust to the new realities.

This is for vegetarians

Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection's chefs are all trained in vegetarian cuisine. According to culinary director Bernhard F. Zorn, chefs on company-owned ships are able to prepare meals for almost any particular kind of vegetarian or vegan diet a guest follows. The chefs include choices ranging from vegan margarine, cookies, cakes, breads, cheeses and yogurts to tofu (smoked or silk), tempeh, eggless pasta, quinoa and products made without yeast.

While all river cruise lines, airlines, and restaurants offer vegetarian options to guests, some go beyond the basic offerings. click here to learn about the top river cruise lines for vegetarians.

 Uniworld Introduces All-Inclusive Cruising for 2014

Tauck has been named the “World’s Best River Cruise Line” by Travel + Leisure magazine!

Naomi would love to hear from you to talk about all the river cruises that Taucks offers.


In 2014, Taucks will launch two new ships and the debut of four new European river cruise itineraries, including our first-ever on the Seine.

Tauck river cruises are crafted and choreographed to be complete destination experiences, and capturing this award is particularly gratifying because the river cruise category was judged on six different criteria, including service, value, itineraries/destinations, activities, cabins and dining.

River Cruising


Starting in 2014 both Uniworld and Viking started to cruise the Bordeaux region on the Dordogne, Garonne, and Gironde Rivers. This is my king of place: land of wine, oysters, truffles, and cognac. Maybe yours too?

River cruises match excellent value with sophisticated destinations. No wonder it's the fastest-growing sector in the travel world.
