In 2016, Tauck’s river cruise customers will pay up to $1,200 less per couple, because the company is passing along favorable gains made by the U.S. dollar against the euro, according to CEO Dan Mahar.

In the past month, the dollar-euro exchange rate has remained below 1.10, a 13-year low.  

Tauck in 2016 will launch two Inspiration-class vessels, the 130-passenger Grace and Joy. They will both feature the Inspiration class’ signature lofted lower-deck cabins: eight 225-square-foot cabins that feature higher ceilings, soaring windows and a raised seating area.

There will be 22 300-square-foot suites with two French balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows, a pull-out couch, walk-in closets and a bathroom with rain shower. There will be an additional 32 cabins at 225 square feet each, and 13 cabins ranging from 150 to 190 square feet. Four of the 150-square-foot cabins will be set aside for solo travelers.

The Grace will sail exclusively on the Rhine, and the Joy will sail the Danube. The launch of the two vessels will bring Tauck’s European river fleet to a total of nine vessels.
