Tauck's Inspire: Explore Europe's medieval heritage

Health advisory: All Tauck guests are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.


Cruising exclusively along the riverscapes of the Rhine and Moselle, ms Inspire lends her name to the new Inspiration class riverboats from Tauck River Cruises. Carrying a maximum of 130 guests, Inspire explores medieval cities from Köln to Strasbourg and wine-growing regions from Cochem to the Alsace.

The new Inspiration class ship continues the cruise line's tradition of providing the most space per guest on Europe’s inland waterways, transporting the fewest passengers of any longship (443 feet). The deck plan for this new ship (and her sister ship ms Savor) are unlike any other in the fleet. With a total of 67 cabins, and an added ship length, she offers  22 suites at 300 sq. ft. To increase the amount of natural sunlight on the lower deck, Inspire also has 8 loft cabins that extend from the first to the second decks, providing guests with an additional view.
