Viking Ra

Owned and operated by Viking, Viking Ra was specifically built to navigate the Nile. She was completely stripped down to her steel frame and reconfigured to be a modern, elegant vessel, launched in 2018. Fully reimagined to international standards and Viking design specifications, she is now an all-suite, state-of-the art ship with the clean, elegant Scandinavian design for which Viking is known. Accommodating just 52 guests, she offers the ultimate in comfort.
