New for 2014, these ships were custom built to sail Portugal’s Douro River, with state-of-the-art engineering, a patented corridor design* and deluxe accommodations featuring streamlined Scandinavian interiors.

Small and intimate, each ship carries just 106 guests. Similar to our Viking Longships®, you can choose from a variety of stateroom classes, all with sweeping river views. Veranda Suites offer two full rooms with a private veranda off the living room and a French balcony in the bedroom, and hotel-style beds, spacious closets and amenities like 40-inch flat-panel TVs. These ships feature public spaces bathed in light, with imaginative and innovative features such as the Observation Lounge with floor-to-ceiling glass doors and the indoor-outdoor Aquavit Terrace®, located at the bow of the ship and perfect for al fresco dining. Sleek and sophisticated, the elegantly understated interiors offer a serene environment in which to unwind and take in the spectacular scenery.

*Corridor configuration designs U.S. Patent # 1832106-0001 to 1832106-0011.
