Health and safety protocols will feature prominently on all of Tauck’s 2021 itineraries, including mandatory use of masks, social distancing whenever possible and enhanced cleaning and disinfection procedures.

A recent Tauck survey of more than 5,000 guests booked to travel now through September revealed a full 95 percent of respondents have already been vaccinated, with another 2 percent scheduled for vaccination.
After driving through the arts and entertainment district of Delray Beach, I was expecting the lively and vibrant energy to follow me to my doorstep at Crane’s Beach House that evening. I was pleasantly surprised when the spirited rumble of a night downtown halted right at the front gate. As I walked the pathway to the front office for check-in, I was welcomed by a quiet rustle of the greenery and flowers that guided my walk, strung with lights and colorful, tropical décor. At check-in I was provided with a complimentary parking pass; although I would only be there for one night, I much appreciated this unexpected perk. I received my room information, including a pass code that would open my door. Keyless entry was a nice touch.
