Launched in 2014, the 130-passenger MS Inspire — along with her sister MS Savor — marked the introduction of Tauck's larger Inspiration Class vessels. Joined in 2016 by MS Joy and MS Grace, this class has the luxe touches you'd expect from one of the most inclusive lines in the business: a fleet of bicycles, a putting green, an all-you-can-drink policy, and even some expenses covered in port. Among the four ships' strengths are their spacious — and elegant — stateroom options, which include 22 suites measuring 300 square feet and featuring dual French balconies, and another 32 suites with 225 square feet of space.

What We Love

Arthur’s: Named after company chairman Arthur Tauck, Jr., this alternate dining venue serves up casual fare during the day and can be booked free of charge for an intimate, romantic meal in the evening. When the weather is nice, the aft-facing windows open up, creating a pleasant indoor-outdoor dining experience.

Low Passenger Count: Tauck’s Inspiration Class ships carry just 130 guests; most European river cruise vessels of a comparable size accommodate between 160 and 190 — and you can feel the difference.

Best Known For

Loft Suites: The innovative Category 3 Loft Suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows that span one-and-a-half stories and open electronically with the push of a button. A raised seating area perches above the slightly lower bedroom and bathroom level.

Spiffy Bathrooms: The bathrooms aboard all four ships are impressively outfitted for shipboard spaces. They offer full-size showers, marble-clad surfaces, plenty of storage spaces, and Molton Brown toiletries.

Who It's Best For

Luxury Travelers: These ships provide a high degree of refinement (and a price tag to match); they are geared towards a well-educated traveler who loves learning about the world in a sophisticated style.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

The Crowd Is Mature: Despite the line’s very family-friendly Tauck Bridges sailings, these ships attract mature, well-heeled passengers. It may not be the best choice for younger cruisers who are looking to hang out with people their own age.
