  • A local woman whose family has been in the travel industry for over 80 years was the guest of honor of French luxury cruise line Compagnie Du Ponant in Venice, Italy, over the weekend. She joined company officials and other dignitaries for the maiden voyage of the line’s new luxury small ship, Le Soléal.
    Kiki Tauck Mahar, of Pittsford, is “godmother” to the new 264-passenger, 466-foot ship, which she officially christened in December. The celebratory cruise concluded on Sunday, June 30, and Le Soléal embarked on its first commercial sailing on July 1.
    “It’s been a true honor to serve as Le Soléal’s godmother, and to help launch this beautiful new ship,” said Kiki Tauck Mahar. “Seeing Le Soléal enter service marks another great milestone in Tauck’s long and successful partnership with Compagnie Du Ponant.”
    Mahar is the daughter of Arthur Tauck, Jr., chairman of the family-owned travel company Tauck. Her husband, Dan Mahar, is CEO.
    Founded in 1925 as Tauck Tours, Connecticut-based Tauck is a leader in guided travel, with over 100 land journeys and cruises to some 70 countries and all seven continents.
