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.
