Old World Europe awaits on a Rhine River cruise

Visit once-in-a-decade Floriade!

Explore an international horticultural wonderland abloom with green cities and designed with healthy living in mind!

As a special Dutch treat included on this river cruise, visit Floriade 2022, “the World's Fair of horticultural shows.” Explore an international horticultural wonderland that celebrates Green Cities of the Future on 148 acres of land repurposed and reclaimed from the sea for a future rich in sustainability, greenery, food, energy and healthy living. Featuring four themed districts connected by bridges, walkways, gondolas and trains, this once in a decade exposition will run from April to October as it showcases green-themed, flower-filled exhibitions from more than 40 countries, along with cultural entertainment, art and cuisine that make it fun for everyone. Truly an energizing experience!

Tauck Exclusive – Evening at Schloss Ehreshoven

Enjoy an elegant dinner and tour at Schloss Ehreshoven

Built in the 14th century and later expanded in the grand style of a Baroque manor house, Schloss Ehreshoven is surrounded by gracious 18th-century French gardens and a castle park. For nearly a century the castle has been the heart of a charitable foundation whose main mission includes providing a home for unmarried aristocratic ladies without means in their golden years. Frequently used as a location for movies and TV shows, the Schloss provides an elegant setting for Tauck's exclusive cocktail reception and dinner, hosted by a member of the family.

A cruise on Amsterdam's canals

A unique perspective of Amsterdam as you cruise its canals

Amsterdam is a vibrant blend of the historic and the contemporary, from its medieval core and 17th-century canals to the rich cosmopolitan life of a 21st-century European metropolis. This is never more evident than on the guided boat cruise you'll take along the network of centuries-old, flower-rimmed waterways that flow through this nearly car-free city of gracious gabled mansions, lots of people on bikes, and more canals than Venice! It all makes for a refreshing perspective on the city.

I traveled the Rhine and Moselle in Fall and it couldn't have been a more beautiful time to be on the river. Even on gray days, the sights were terrific and sometimes truly breathtaking.

The MS Inspire was a remarkable vessel. Accommodations were spacious, comfortable and luxurious. The entire staff from the captain, tour directors, wait staff to the cleaning crew were friendly, helpful and totally dedicated to making this journey special for us and all the passengers. Seeing a portion of Europe in this manner was simply magical!

Most Memorable Moment:

We had two favorite memorable moments. 1. The day we were cruising on the Rhine passing all the castles. If you just saw one of these castles, you would be mystified, but to see so many castles was incredible. 2. We loved walking the streets of some of the small towns. We felt absorbed in the culture as they were not the usual tourist stops.


We definitely felt we were on tour, with early morning departures and lots of bus rides. Our biggest complaint, though, was with our “loft” cabin, which is a great design in theory. However, we were awakened multiple times each night by the flushing of our neighbors’ vacuum toilets. (We even travel with a white noise machine.)

Most Memorable Moment:

Scenic cruising days and some of the smaller towns like Cochem and Boppard.
