ms Joy

After debuting in 2016, the 443-foot long ship 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.

Like all other Tauck River Cruises, the highlight of any ms Joy sailing is 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. The itineraries of ms Joy include The Blue Danube, Musical Magic Along the Blue Danube, and The Blue Danube: Family Riverboat Adventure. Some of the stops along these itineraries include sensational cities such as Prague, Salzburg, Vienna, Passau, Bratislava and Cesky Krumlov. With these itineraries, you’ll have the chance to engage in private tours of Prague’s Baroque libraries and the Strahov Monastery, pay a visit to Bratislava’s Opera House, get the opportunity to talk with a Mozarteum University professor, participate in music-themed sightseeing, bike along the Danube and play Slovakian castle games. All of these amazing sites and excursions are included in your cruise price so there is no excuse to miss out on these once-in-a lifetime opportunities.

ms Joy features one of the most innovative deck plans in all of river cruising, boasting 67 cabins that range in size from 150 to 300-sq. feet. Twenty-two of these rooms are spacious Tauck Suites, which offer two French balconies, a pull-out sleeping couch and exclusive breakfast room service. ms Joy also features eight split-level loft cabins that include a one-and-a-half deck opening window (electronically controlled) and a raised sitting area that provides you with plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy your cruise. The majority of all staterooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with a French balcony, allowing for unimpaired views of the riverside. All rooms come equipped with a minibar that has water and soft drinks, adjustable temperature controls 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 Joy, where keeping you refreshed and relaxed for your traveling pleasure is the key focus of Tauck's service.

On top of all that, the chefs aboard ms Joy use some of the finest culinary inspirations from the area in all dishes and culinary creations. 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 Joy 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. Don’t forget about Tauck’s incredible offboard dining experiences, which are not events to miss out on. Instead of having a traditional dinner onboard, you might take part in a private exclusive dinner at Lobkowicz Palace in Prague or indulge in a gala dinner at a Vienna palace, followed by an enchanting performance.

Your dream vacation is just one click or call away. Don’t miss out on the exclusive savings and limited-time deals you’ll get by booking with us. Contact us now to start instantly saving on your next voyage aboard ms Joy.
