Welcome aboard ms Inspire

When you make your way onto ms Inspire, climb to the top deck and take a moment to look over the rails and glance out as the riverbanks pass you by. Then, turn around and join back into the festivities, grabbing a cool drink and enjoying the company of loved ones and new friends, ready for the adventures that await...

Maintaining Tauck’s high standards for quality and comfort, ms Inspire cruises exclusively for Tauck on the Danube River as part of our Destination Fleet. With a maximum of 130 guests, the 443-foot riverboat and her sister ships continue our tradition of providing more space per guest on Europe’s inland waterways, transporting fewer passengers than most longships (135 meters). Her deck plan is innovative; with a total of 67 cabins, our most popular cabins tend to be our largest... so we have used the added ship length to offer twenty-two 300-square-foot Tauck Suites – the most of any river cruise ship on any European river. To increase the amount of natural sunlight on the lower deck, we’ve created 8 loft cabins that extend from the first to the second decks, providing guests with an additional view; all windows in these loft cabins open.

Onboard Experience

Your day starts with breakfast onboard… sharing your favorite table by the window with the couple you became friends with at your welcome dinner… enjoying your favorite buffet selections just the way you like them… along with great views of the castles and fairy-tale villages lining the banks of the river. The riverboat docks right around the time you’re finished with breakfast; you couldn’t have asked for better timing… As you step off the riverboat, our local experts eagerly await to show you around the historic riverside city they call home. Spend your morning exploring with your local guide, discovering the city’s medieval heart, with its winding canals, millennium-old towers and bridges, and cobblestone streets so different from those you’re used to back home. You might decide to stay ashore for lunch in a local biergarten, sampling the sausages and locally crafted beers they’ve made here for ages – or return to the riverboat for lunch onboard. Back aboard, you’ll have some time to explore your “floating hotel.” Or decide to relax and chat with friends as you bask in the sun, sipping a cool drink. Refreshed, you head into the lobby just in time to watch the riverboat dock. Spend the afternoon exploring a world-famous Gothic cathedral built nearly a thousand years ago and the picture-perfect town that grew up around it. Dinner tonight may be something you have never experienced before… an evening in an authentic Bavarian castle perched hundreds of feet above the river… the kind you’ve seen in fairy-tales! The couple you had breakfast with joins you, bringing along some new friends, and you’re all transported back a thousand years as you dig into a medieval meal you won’t soon forget. Returning to the riverboat, you meet your companions for a little more camaraderie around the piano in the lounge before calling it a night. Drifting off to sleep, you smile… realizing that you’ll soon be waking up in another magical town… to embark on another perfect day of your Tauck river cruise… Read Less
