    English Holiday Cruises now have six cruises to choose from. Why go abroad when you can river cruise in the UK?
    This is Britain at its finest with crisp air, wildlife and amazing history in every direction. You don’t even have to move more than a few feet to see it. Just sit in comfortable chairs in the saloon, bar or top viewing deck.
    As the boat meanders gently down the river the Skipper talks about the local history and wildlife in a way which can only come from a family company.
    Stay on board all day and watch the world go by or take one of the tours included at every destination, knowing you don’t have to pay any extra. You decide. After all, this is your home from home with the added bonus of the crew doing everything for you.
    One boat, six different cruises!

    Tauck’s ms Sapphire & ms Emerald Back on the Water Following Substantial Renovation

    9 days ago

    Tauck, welcomed ms Sapphire & ms Emerald back to its fleet. After a long renovation programme, ms Sapphire was the first of Tauck’s four 110m ships to complete its radical transformation, followed closely by the company’s ms Emerald. The ms Sapphire is to sail on Tauck’s Seine river cruises, while the ms Emerald will travel along the Rhone.
    With the redesign, Tauck continues to prioritise creating larger cabins and roomier public areas for its guests, rather than maximising the number of passengers on board. The Sapphire and Emerald were fully gutted in a “down-to-the-studs” refurbishment, with the most significant change occurring on the Ruby (middle) Deck. Here, 30 150-square-foot cabins have been replaced by 20 larger cabins each measuring 225 square feet. With the total number of cabins reduced from 59 to 49, the Sapphire’s and Emerald’s overall capacity have dropped from 118 passengers to 98, creating a more spacious and luxurious experience for guests.
