Because we own and operate our ships, no detail escapes our attention. It’s what sets us apart. And we never forget that looking after you is how we became the world’s leading river cruise line. Join us, and learn why our guests return again and again. And why we have consistently been the most awarded cruise line worldwide.
Scandinavian Spaces. The design of our ships enhances your journey—from the light and airy Atrium, our soaring lobby that rivals those of the finest hotels, to the quiet corner of the Library, a perfect place to read up on your next destination. In the sun-filled Viking Lounge, portions of the floor-to-ceiling windows roll away to bring fresh air in. Step over the threshold, and you’ll experience the Aquavit Terrace, a glorious outdoor seating area at the bow of the ship. Or, enjoy a multicourse meal in the Restaurant, our upscale dining venue with panoramic windows that welcome ever-changing views.
On top of the ship, relax on the Sun Deck while you take in 360° views.
Destination-Focused Dining. Much of the joy of travel lies in sampling the fresh fare and regional cuisine that bring your destination to life. Locally sourced ingredients—like Provençal lemons, Hungarian paprika and dill from the onboard herb garden—inspire our chefs to create authentic regional dishes. Our extensive wine list enhances your meal and features a vintage created by Viking’s own vintner.
Destination-Focused Dining.Viking’s signature “Taste of…” events introduce you to the food and drink of the region. Our “Taste of Germany,” for instance, features pretzels and sweet mustard, bratwurst and Kölsch. It’s the perfect opportunity to mingle with fellow guests and sample the flavors of local culture.
Destination-Focused Dining. Impeccable service amid casual elegance. Indulge in attentive table service in the upscale Restaurant as you sail into your next port. Greet the morning with a sumptuous buffet. Enjoy a savory soup and a light salad midday. Come evening, settle in for a relaxed, multicourse fine-dining experience. Open seating allows you to dine with the same guests or meet someone new each day. If you wish, enjoy a more casual meal, from a breakfast croissant to lighter evening fare, on the Sun Deck or Aquavit Terrace, our al fresco dining area at the bow of the ship.
Viking’s Patented Design Allows for More Variety Than Other Ships. Your private sanctuary on the river. Viking’s innovative thinking provides you with more choices and a more enriching overall experience than other ships. Each of our spacious staterooms offers deluxe comfort during your river cruise. Whichever stateroom you choose, your hotel-style bed topped with European linens and duvets provides the perfect place to turn in after a full day of exploring Europe’s great towns and cities. And you’ll feel pampered by bathrooms equipped with heated floors and premium Freyja™ bath products.
The First-Ever True Suite on European River Ships. The ultimate in lavish comfort. While other cruise lines call one large room a “suite,” Viking Longships offer river cruising’s first-ever true suites, each with two full-size rooms. These outstanding spaces are the largest suites on Europe’s rivers and provide commanding views, making our innovative Viking Longships the most desirable way to see Europe’s great waterways. As you gaze upon sweeping river views from the privacy of your elegant suite, the charming windmills of Holland, hillside castles of Germany or lush vineyards of Austria’s Wachau Valley seem close enough to touch.
Onboard Enrichment. Viking’s Culture Curriculum®, our exclusive onboard program, brings local history to life with informative lectures on history and art; tastings of regional wines; restaurant menus inspired by local cuisine and enriching Destination Performances featuring folkloric shows and musicians playing regional and classical music.
