Tauck boosts capacity by two-thirds on its 2014 Christmas Market river cruises

Tauck will boost its Christmas market river cruise departures by 67 per cent, and increase the number of ships sailing on its two Christmas-themed itineraries from three to four.  The new ms Inspire and ms Savor will both make their Christmas market cruise debuts, joining the ms Treasures and the ms Swiss Jewel.

Tauck offers two different eight-day Christmas market river cruises, “Christmas Markets Along The Rhine” (from £1572 per person plus airfare) visits markets in Germany and France as it travels south from Cologne to Basel aboard Tauck’s ms Inspire on December 7 and aboard the ms Swiss Jewel on December 13.  Northbound departures following a reverse itinerary begin in Basel on November 30 and December 14 aboard the ms Inspire, and aboard the ms Swiss Jewel on December 6.

“Christmas Markets Along the Danube” (from £1551 per person plus air) sails eastward from N├╝rnberg to Vienna aboard the ms Savor on November 29 and December 13, and aboard the ms Treasures on December 7.  A reverse (westbound) itinerary begins in Vienna on December 6 aboard the ms Savor, and on November 30 aboard the ms Treasures.  The expansion will include the two Inspiration Class ships launched this year, an additional two as-yet-unnamed Inspiration Class ships launching in 2016, and a fifth Jewel Class ship – the ms Esprit – set to join Tauck’s fleet in early 2015.
