Viking River Cruises

Viking River Cruises operates 50 river vessels in some of the world's most magnificent places. The company's ships are sleek and well-appointed, with fine wood furnishings and spacious public areas, and every room features a view of passing vistas with a picture window, a French balcony or veranda. Gourmet cuisine, superb service from the staff, and knowledgeable Program Directors enhance your experience.

At least one port a day is visited on every Viking river cruise itinerary. Viking owns docks in many of the cities it visits, and passengers are able to disembark in the heart of town without waiting in lines or taking tenders to shore. English-speaking local guides lead tours ashore, but you can also explore on your own.

Accommodations, most meals on and off the ship, some beverages and all shore excursions are included in Viking's cruise price. Viking also features a cultural enrichment program, with authentic folkloric entertainment, lectures, cultural arts demonstrations and language lessons provided onboard and ashore.

  • Viking operates river cruises in Europe, China, Vietnam and Myanmar.
  • River cruises are rated according to the quality of the vessel and its accommodations, the number of included amenities and activities both on and off the ship, the class of hotels used for land portions of itineraries, and the level of service delivered. Viking river cruises are categorized as deluxe on the industry rating scale (budget, first class and deluxe).
  • Viking also offers upscale ocean-going cruises in the Mediterranean and other destinations. To see itineraries and prices for Viking ocean-going cruises, click here.
