Viking River Cruises operates the world's biggest and foremost array of luxury ships built purposely for river cruising. With cruises to Europe, Russia, China and the Far East, Viking has hosted more than half a million cruisers on magical, informative journeys across the world.
River cruising is popular with travellers who want to spend their holiday in the destination, rather than travelling to get there.
Viking River Cruises' ships are small, carrying an average of 150 passengers. They are Scandinavian in design, with open, spacious interiors. Travellers benefit from all the amenities and services that they might expect in a top hotel, plus extensive, panoramic views throughout the ships. Each of the Viking staterooms has a view of the river from either a window or balcony. Each room has an array of features that one would expect from a 4 star hotel, along with the beauty of water views, satellite television and comfortable beds.
Viking's onboard chefs prepare superb breakfasts, impressive lunches and elegant dinners daily. Whilst dining on board a Viking cruise is 'casual' and offers an open-seating arrangement, the ambience is always elegant and that you would expect in a high-end hotel.
When cruisers journey with Viking River Cruises, they are safe in the knowledge that their experience will be invigorating, exciting and educational - both onboard and on shore. Staff on board are highly trained in providing excellent service, planning exceptional excursions and in the culture or history of the surrounding areas. On every Viking itinerary, work goes into providing a historical, contextual and cultural perspective of the destination. Wherever you choose to travel with Viking, you have the same exceptional standard of service, because Viking arranges all of the trip's important details, nautical, technical, catering, sightseeing and guides themselves. All that's left for you to do is to unpack (just once), enjoy a glass of wine on the calming open deck, listen to inspiring lectures, and enjoy the live entertainment on board. You have the option of taking an excursion on-shore, or exploring at your own leisure, it's your holiday and your choice.
