MS SAVOR Ship Review
MS SAVOR Overview
The ms Savor began operating in 2014 along with the ms Inspire when Tauck introduced its Inspiration Class ships to the market. Like its sister ship, the vessel is 443 feet long and has more suite staterooms than any other river cruise vessels. As a matter of fact, 22 of its 67 cabins are full-size suites, which measure 300 square feet in size.
Cruising along the Danube River, the ms Savor carries up to 130 guests and 39 crew members. Also among its staff are a Cruise Director and three Assistant Cruise Directors. The Tauck directors keep themselves busy making sure guests enjoy time onboard as well as time on land. They are behind the premium and often exclusive private tours offered to their passengers.
Providing a first-class, 5-star experience is Tauck’s main objective. Despite the company’s high expectations in terms of service, the atmosphere tends to be quite relaxed.
Some of the amenities onboard include a Fitness Center, Massage Room and Hair Salon, Putting Green and Jacuzzi.
