Viking River Cruises

Viking operates more than 50 ships on the world’s most renowned rivers. The company's vessels combine hotel-like comforts with the relaxing atmosphere of a small ship. All rooms have river views, and many have full balconies. Amenities include a shaded sundeck, restaurant with panoramic vistas, bar and lounge, library and boutique.

For each itinerary, the ship’s professional chefs plan meals that reflect specialties from the surrounding region. American classics also have a permanent place on the menu for stateside passengers who may be missing a taste of home.

Accommodations, delectable cuisine, many beverages and shore excursions are covered in the upfront price. Also included is the company’s Culture Curriculum program that features presentations on history and customs from local experts. Music and dance performances and cooking demonstrations round out the list of enrichment activities.

Trip ratings on this site are based on the quality of accommodations, the number of included meals and activities and the level of service delivered. Viking's vacations are categorized as deluxe on the industry rating scale (budget, first class or deluxe).

In addition to river cruises, Viking also offers ocean cruises in many regions worldwide. To see itineraries and prices for Viking ocean cruises, click here.
