Viking River Cruises offer delightful journeys along the world´s greatest waterways. With over 175 years of heritage in European river cruising, Viking operates 19 deluxe vessels built specifically for river travel.


The Viking experience is a perfect combination of shore excursions, lectures, demonstrations and performances; every journey is a cultural adventure. Enjoy at least one shore excursion every day. These guided tours bring you closer to the culture, people and history of your destination.


To ensure that the culinary pleasures experienced at the destination continue onboard, Viking has established a menu imbued with regional specialties and traditional Western cuisine. Created by European and celebrity chefs, the Viking menu is also regularly adjusted to allow for the enjoyment of seasonal specialties such as asparagus and game.


Reminiscent of the design philosophy of the storied Royal Viking Line, the ship´s public areas including a single-seating restaurant, observation lounge and bar as well as an expansive sun deck, provide unobstructed panoramic views throughout. Select amenities include free wireless internet, spa, beauty salon, physician or even a tailor.


Comfortable staterooms stocked with amenities, helpful staff and connections with the outside world are just a few of the touches that mean so much when you travel with Viking. Every stateroom has an outside river view with a window or balcony for viewing scenery, and on every ship most windows open to the fresh air.


Viking offers the discerning traveler opportunities to explore destinations in-depth yet in a most relaxing and comfortable way. With an exciting array of 8- to 17 -day cruises and cruisetours in Europe, Russia, Ukraine, China, Southeast Asia and Egypt, the choice is yours.

In 2012, Viking will debut four new vessels in Europe. Viking Freya, Viking Idun, Viking Njord and Viking Odin, will feature more full-size verandas and full-size staterooms than on any other ship in Europe. The lounge has been reinvented, creating a unique area that combines the comfort of the indoors with the exhilaration of the outdoors.
