Elegant. Stylish. Exceptionally comfortable. The world’s largest fleet of river cruise ships is also the most beautiful. And since we operate all the vessels in our fleet, there is no detail that goes unnoticed. On board, you are greeted with an abundance of space with room to relax, fresh air to breathe and all the comforts of a fine hotel that is designed to blend seamlessly with the spectacular panorama of ever-changing views.
Leading the way in innovative design are the Viking Longships, now sailing on Europe's great rivers! With patented designs for both stateroom configuration and the ship’s bow, these vessels have received acclaim for their cutting edge design, outstanding quality, and state-of-the-art engineering. In an unprecedented move, Cruise Critic editors recognized the entire Viking Longships fleet as the year's "Best River Cruise Ship." This marks the first time this award has been presented to an entire class of ship.
The Newest Ships and Largest Staterooms
Designed to cruise the world’s great rivers, all Viking ships are built, above all, for comfort. On our newest ships you can look forward to the most spacious staterooms, with French balconies and full verandas and hotel-style beds throughout. You will be pampered with quality linens, premium bath products, complimentary bottled water and an in-room entertainment system with a choice of channels and programs.
Featuring a backdrop of picture-perfect landscapes, the lounge, dining areas and sun deck are wonderful places to relax and unwind. You can also capture the ever-changing views from the comfort of your private sanctuary, because every stateroom is “outside” with a veranda, French balcony or window.
The Treasures of Russia
Explore lands afar, with all the comforts of home. Viking Rurik, Viking Helgi, Viking Ingvar and Viking Truvor have all been completely refurbished, and are by far the best river cruise ships in Russia, featuring private verandas on Upper and Middle Decks.
Every aspect of your Viking journey is created with your comfort and pleasure in mind, including overnight stays in carefully selected hotels and, most importantly, the personal haven that is your stateroom. With a superb choice of accommodations, Viking offers something special to suit every guest.
Be prepared to be surprised. Spacious, light and airy, every stateroom is beautifully appointed, with elegant décor. Cool cottons, warm wools, furniture crafted from the finest materials and televisions with CNN and CNBC make it everything you wish for. With hotel-style beds, clever storage and spacious closets, all rooms have a private bath with shower, and most have individual climate control. As always, it is the little things that count: complimentary bottled water, wooden clothes hangers, premium bath products and comfortable slippers to slide into after a busy day exploring.
Whether you choose a stateroom with a picture window, French balcony with sliding glass doors or a suite with your own veranda, every room makes the most of the spectacular scenery. For a lovely breath of fresh air, the majority of windows open; suites and category A and B staterooms are on the upper decks for best views. Whether it be a riverside market in a medieval town, a rolling vineyard in the lush countryside, wild forests, or manicured gardens, you'll be able to recline and relax as it all passes before you like a dream.
All the Comforts of a Fine Hotel
Sleek and sophisticated, the elegantly understated interiors offer a serene environment in which to unwind and watch the world go by. A choice of lounge areas, bars and a well-stocked library offer plenty of room in which to relax. Help yourself to 24-hour cappuccino, coffee or tea, and stay in touch with family and friends with our wireless Internet, all of which is complimentary.
