Viking River Cruises is the world's largest river cruise line. Viking River Cruises showcases the rivers of Europe, Russia, China and the Ukraine. With 23 river cruise ships, Viking River Cruises continues to expand to new destinations and builds innovative river cruise ships that provide all the comfort of fine hotels with attentive management.
Why a River Cruise?
Unlike a bus tour where you spend more time on the bus than actually seeing the country, Viking River Cruises offers you fine food, great service and scenic cruising along some of the world's great rivers.
Overnights in Port
Your cruise will not only bring you up close to historic sites and natural wonders, it will provide an enriching and scenic journey that's sure to be one of the most delightful vacations you'll ever have.
Viking River Cruise has deluxe cruise ships that are built to easily navigate Europe's rivers, while the Scandinavian-designed interiors ensure the same outstanding comfort you would expect from a fine hotel. These maneuverable ships often dock right in the heart of town, so you step right into Europe's history-filled cities. The ships' sophisticated hydraulic systems and maximum flexibility allow you the excitement of journeying through engineering marvels like the Main-Danube Canal.
Every day offers and opportunity to stroll on the Sun Deck and marvel at breathtaking 360-degree views of the ever-changing scenery... to savor fine dining in the elegant restaurant... to relax with friends over a game of cards or curl up with a good book in the library... to enjoy a leisurely cocktail in the stylish bar and observation lounge with its large picture windows. And every evening you'll retire in comfort to your well-appointed outside cabin.
You'll cruise intimately with no more than 150 other travelers, and become known as an individual and friend to the English-speaking crew. They'll enhance your shipboard experience and enrich your discoveries of Europe with personal insight into their culture. The ships of Viking River Cruises truly offer you the most rewarding way to discover the real Europe.
In 2012 Viking introduced a new class of ship - Viking Longships, and will inaugurate more in 2012, for a total of 12 Longships. The Aegir, Bragi, Embla, Forseti, Freya, Idun, Njord, Rinda, Skadi, Tor and Var set a new standard in river cruise ships with patent-pending designs featuring full-sized verandas in some on some cabins. Seventy-five percent of the 95 cabins will have a veranda or French balcony. Two 445 sq. ft. Explorer Suites have wraparound verandas, and each new Longship features an open-air terrace cafe.

Viking River Cruises designed their cabins with your needs in mind. All cabins are outside cabins - no dark, interior rooms. Many cabins are equivalent in size to more mainstream cruise ships at around 150 square feet of well-appointed comfort. Clean, Scandinavian-designed rooms offer storage options from wardrobes and bureaus to built-in desks and shelving.
Many cabins feature hotel-style beds and large picture windows that open, two unique features not found on most river cruise vessels. All western European ships have in-room televisions with English-language programming, movies for leisure-time viewing, and telephones so you can keep in touch. And a gracious cabin stewardess will service your cabin twice daily and will pamper you with turndown service to prepare you for a peaceful night's rest.
A river cruise with Viking River Cruises is the best way to see the Europe, Russia or China up close and in depth. In Europe you can cruise the Rhine, Main, Moselle, Danube, Elbe, Seine and Rhône Rivers. In Russia, you'll sail along the banks of the Volga River. And in China, you'll experience the wonders of the Yangtze.
