Consistently voted among the World’s Best River Cruise Lines by Travel + Leisure readers, Viking River Cruises continues to lead the industry with the newest and best ships, designed for your comfort and pleasure.
A Better Way to Explore Legendary Waterways. Rich history. Food that’s as inspiring as the scenery. On a Viking cruise, expect all that and a whole lot more. “Today’s travelers are looking for immersive experiences that bring them right to the heart of a destination,” says Viking’s chairman Torstein Hagen. “That explains a lot of the growth in river cruising – and the demand Viking has experienced.” Viking’s new Viking Longships will meet the growth in demand in unrivaled comfort and style. These vessels combine cutting-edge technology with revolutionary design features, such as an indoor/outdoor Aquavit Terrace; the largest two-room suites in Europe; and hybrid engines that make for a remarkably smooth ride.
An Insider Experience. Exploring the classic sights – the iconic museums and landmarks – is just the beginning. Viking goes beyond the expected, featuring a “local life” and “working world” experience on every itinerary. Perhaps it’s a home-hosted visit, or a trip to a local market to get the flavor of a place. Maybe it’s a trip to the Kinderdijk windmills near Amsterdam, or the porcelain factory in Meissen. Each itinerary also includes an optional Privileged Access experience, such as an exclusive tour of Lobkowicz Palace in Prague.
The Viking Difference. Viking owns and operates its own ships, which means the company oversees every aspect of every journey. Each moment of your cruise, from expertly planned menus to carefully crafted enrichment programs, is designed to help you experience the most from your destination. Value, too, is first-rate: Viking’s inclusive fares cover accommodations, all onboard meals with wine, beer, and soft drinks during lunch and dinner service, Wi-Fi, daily shore excursions, and cultural enrichment.
