After debuting in 2014, ms Inspire expanded the capacity of a typical Tauck River Cruise ship from 118 to 130. The tradition of fine, individual service will continue well into the future with ms Inspire.

A new feature on this ship be Loft Suites. These two floor suites will allow guests plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy their cruise.

ms Inspire will spend her first season sailing on the Rhine River. Itineraries will include The Rhine and Moselle, and The Romantic Rhine. Stops along these itineraries will include Budapest, Vienna, Passau, and Bratislava.

Like all other Tauck Cruises, the highlight of any ms Inspire sailing will be the many stops and tours along the river. Tauck specializes in land tours and the tour portion of any cruise will never cease to disappoint. On top of that, the chefs aboard ms Inspire will use some of the finest culinary inspirations from the area in all dishes and culinary creations.
