After debuting in 2016, ms Joy became Tauck's exclusive vessel to sail along the Danube River. With a maximum of 130 guests, the intimate atmosphere onboard is characterized by a tradition of fine, individual service. Along with her sister ships ms Grace, ms Savor and ms Inspire, ms Joy will offer the most space per guest on Europe's inland waterways.

The itineraries of ms Joy include The Blue Danube, Musical Magic Along the Blue Danube, and The Blue Danube: Family Riverboat Adventure. Stops along these itineraries include wonderful cities such as Munich, Nürnberg, Vienna, Passau, Bratislava and Cesky Krumlov.

A new feature on ms Joy are its 8 Loft Suites. These spacious two-floor suites provide their guests with plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy their cruise, and have windows that can open. The added length of ms Joy also allowed for Tauck to offer twenty-two 300-square-foot-suites aboard this beautiful vessel.

In-room amenities on ms Joy include 400-thread-count satin bed linens made from the finest combed cotton, puffy white duvets and pillows of very fine mako cotton (with a hypoallergenic 90% down filling), 100% cotton blankets, and thick pillow-top mattresses that are sure to lull you to sleep. This is all in addition to the Essentials Line of Molton Brown bath products, exclusive to Tauck.

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