Maintaining Tauck's high standards for quality and comfort, ms Joy cruises exclusively for Tauck on the Danube River as part of our Destination Fleet. With a maximum of 130 guests, the 443-foot riverboat and her sister ships continue our tradition of providing more space per guest on Europe's inland waterways, transporting fewer passengers than most longships (135 meters). Her deck plan is innovative; with a total of 67 cabins, our most popular cabins tend to be our largest... so we have used the added ship length to offer twenty-two 300-square-foot Tauck Suites - the most of any river cruise ship on any European river. To increase the amount of natural sunlight on the lower deck, we've created 8 loft cabins that extend from the first to the second decks, providing guests with an additional view; all windows in these loft cabins open.
We couldn't find just the right
words to describe the sumptuous new bedding and amenities we custom ordered for
your in-cabin cruising comfort... 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,
temperature balancing and so soft to the skin... and thick pillow-top mattresses
that lull you to sleep... along with the Essentials Line of Molton Brown bath
products, exclusive to Tauck... absorbent terry cloth robes and fluffy towels...
hair dryers... but we do know they are key for waking up refreshed and relaxed
for your traveling pleasure.
