Amsterdam to Budapest October 12, 2014
I am a new Tauck traveler and have no idea what to expect, plus I am a solo traveler. I live in Springfield, MO, USA so have a long travel time. Is it acceptable to travel in nice jeans on the flight trips to and from the destination?
If you can at all afford it, try to arrive 1-2 days before the cruise. It helps so much getting over the jetlag before the cruise and you'll likely meet other Tauck cruisers, your Tour Director(s), etc if you use their recommended hotel. We wished we'd added a few more days in Paris before our Rhine cruise.
Absolutely. You'll have some lengthy flights ahead of you, and what's most important is that you be comfortable. Personally, I wouldn't want to wear something that I'd be reluctant to wear out in public, such as pajama pants and a sweatshirt (although I have seen people wear that on flights, particularly on red-eye flights), but I would definitely agree that you should be comfortable. My only other advice would be to pack a change of clothes or two in your carryon bags, just in case something should happen to your luggage, unlikely though it is.
