One of Tauck's newer Jewel-class riverboats, ms Esprit, was originally built to accommodate no more than 118 guests in comparison to the average of 160 on similar-sized boats. The ship is scheduled to undergo a refurbishment in 2018, which will include an all new spacious deck plan and a reduced capacity of only 98 guests to bring you a warmer and more intimate river cruise than ever before. With an itinerary featuring Europe's most famous rivers, you can enjoy everything from exploring old-world cities rich in beautiful architecture and vast culture, to taking part in exquisite wine tastings and gala evenings. Bringing you into the very heart of Europe's oldest cities, including Amsterdam, Budapest, Brussels and Bucharest, you will discover yourself transported away to some of the most memorable and amazing destinations among the sumptuous amenities and services onboard ms Esprit.
ms Esprit boasts some of the finest staterooms offered on European rivers, ranging in size from 150 to 300-sq. feet. As a result of its upcoming refurbishment, ms Esprit will feature 14 all-new Tauck Suites and 20 225-sq. foot cabins. 85% of all staterooms will feature floor-to-ceiling windows with a French balcony, allowing for unimpaired views of the riverside. All rooms will come equipped with in-house movies, a minibar with water and soft drinks, adjustable temperature controls, a hair dryer and a private bathroom and shower with Essentials Line of Molton Brown bath amenities. You will be able to rest comfortably after a long day of adventuring on your delicate pillowtop mattress, covered by 400-thead-count satin linens, your head resting on rounded pillows formed from fine mako cotton and your body snuggled up beneath a soft, cotton hypoallergenic comforter with 90% down filling. These are just a few of the comforts you will find yourself surrounded in once aboard ms Esprit, where keeping you refreshed and relaxed for your traveling pleasure is the key focus of Tauck's service.
Sailing up and down Europe’s Rhine, Main and Danube rivers year-round, ms Esprit visits many of the beautiful European towns settled along these historic waters. Voyages on this river cruise ship include Amsterdam to Budapest by Riverboat, Holland & Belgium in Spring, and Grand European Cruise. Witness all of the amazing sights that Europe has to offer, including grand cathedrals, historic windmills, medieval monasteries, colorful gardens, mesmerizing vineyards, famous citadels and castles that resemble those right out of a fairy tale. You will get to experience trips to local breweries, visits to incredible museums and guided sightseeing to unforgettable cities with a deep history when cruising on ms Esprit.
Dining onboard ms Esprit is delicious and flexible. The two restaurants, The Compass Rose and Arthur’s, feature open-seating dining that leaves you free to dine whenever you want with whomever you want. The Compass Rose is the main dining venue aboard ms Esprit while Arthur’s offers light breakfast and casual lunch and dinner. You can also enjoy al fresco dining on the sun deck, plus complimentary snacks served from 10:00 am through midnight, as long as the weather holds out.
