From four river ships in 1997 to the most extensive fleet on the world’s waterways today, Viking River are the experts in their field. Decades after they first hit the water, the Viking Cruises concept remains the same; innovative engineering, sleek Scandinavian design and an absolute focus on the destination.
Whether you choose a Viking River Cruise or Viking Ocean Cruise, the world-class service behind the Viking Experience remains the same. Swiss-trained chefs craft exquisite cuisine; from leisurely al fresco lunches, to coffee and croissants on the sun deck and lingering five-course dinners. Award-winning crew are attentive from the very first ‘hello’; there to welcome you back after a long day exploring on shore.
The Viking River Cruises fleet sets sail along the rivers of Europe, Russia, China and Southeast Asia. Experience the world from a new perspective along the riverbanks of the Rhine, Danube and Elbe, or see things differently with lessons on life along the Yangtze, Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers. Destination is paramount on a Viking River cruise; cities aren’t just explored but experienced. Itineraries go above and beyond the expected, and you’ll discover not just the land but also the food, cultures and customs of each and every port. Later evening departures and overnight stays gift you the time to see leisurely days transform into long nights, entertained in the world’s most iconic venues, before enjoying breakfast at a favourite haunt of the locals. Why visit a place when you can experience it completely with Viking Cruises?
