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.
Accommodating up to 130 passengers as she winds her way along the mighty Danube River to offer our guests exclusive Tauck discoveries in timeless cities like Munich, Nürnberg, Vienna, Passau, Bratislava and Cesky Krumlov, the 443-foot ms Joy leads the way in spacious comfort with the most space per guest on Europe’s rivers.

In 1882, Herman Tauck arrived in New York City from Germany in search of the American dream. His determination and values were passed on to his son, Arthur Tauck, who would realize that dream. With ingenuity and an innovative spirit, Arthur started Tauck Motor Tours, a travel company that would give birth to a new industry. The first tour, through the back roads of New England, was created by this 27-year-old in 1925. It embodied the same successful formula used by Tauck today: Craft a life-enriching travel experience; provide it at a single all-inclusive price; ensure there is great value for money; and rely on recommendations of satisfied customers to build a following and grow the business.
Since the early days of Tauck Motor Tours, things have come a long way or should we say Tauck are going a lot further. Whilst the values that the company were founded on still exist today, the scope of the destinations you can travel with Tauck have expanded, taking you to all four corners of the globe whilst holding on to the concept of ‘family’ in everything they do.
Tauck specialises in small ship cruising whether that’s on the river ways around the world or taking you to some of the most exciting destinations that the bigger cruise ships simply can’t get to. Tauck's small ships are all personally selected, hand-picked for their comfort, style and reliability; they are the best in their regions. All are spacious, graciously appointed and well-equipped for cruising to remote destinations.
In total, Tauck have 14 river cruising ships and a further 14 small cruise ships that will take you to destinations around the globe. Sticking with the theme of family, Tauck’s smaller cruise ships cater for fewer guests, meaning they can deliver a much more personalised service to each and every guest on board. Enjoy an exclusive, club-like atmosphere on board; it's relaxed travel, with no crowds and no lines. Dress is comfortable, unassuming and casual. That goes for any of Tauck’s 28 cruise ships.

With such a big fleet offering widely varying itineraries from river cruises to yacht and expeditionary small ship cruising, the onboard experience varies from ship to ship.

Each cruise ship, whether it’s a river cruise or small ship cruise is luxuriously appointed and the suites and staterooms are furnished to an extremely high standard, taking luxury cruising to new levels.
Some of Tauck’s larger cruise ships do come equipped with some of the modern luxuries you would expect on a large cruise ship including swimming pools, fitness suites, spas and a range of restaurants and bars.
