The Premier European Experience With Viking River Cruises



The safety and security of guests, crew and the communities they visit are of utmost importance and continue to be the criteria on which our cruise line partners base their itinerary decisions. Most itineraries that include stops in the impacted areas are not scheduled to begin until late spring or summer. Current sailings are in the process of being reevaluated or have already been adjusted. As always, our cruise line partners strive to provide to travelers’ memorable experiences that prioritize safety and make cruising the best way to see the world.  We encourage travelers with current bookings with us to check with us or your cruise line for more information on the status of your booked or intended cruise.

Sailing Europe’s storied rivers, the award-winning Viking Longships® offer a variety of stateroom categories and true (two-room) suites with full-size verandas. Onboard amenities include a restaurant, bar and lounge, library and expansive sun deck. The ships feature al fresco dining on the Aquavit Terrace, an elegant Scandinavian design and “green” features, such as solar panels, an onboard organic herb garden and energy-efficient hybrid engines for a remarkably smooth ride.
