In the first century AD, the Vikings, world class navigators, explored the oceans, reaching the British Isles and even the North American continent.  Perhaps in the tradition of the Vikings, and twenty centuries later, Viking River Cruises established its U.S. headquarters.

Through rapid expansion and an unheard of pace in building new Viking Longships, far more comfortable than those of its namesake, the company has grown to become the world’s largest river cruise line, with over 65 ships, cruising in Europe and Asia, with Mississippi River cruises coming in 2017!

Appealing to travelers looking for well-priced value, Viking’s river cruises offer a desirable mid-range product by foregoing some of the frills offered by more luxury river cruise lines.  The all-inclusive pricing, typical of river cruise vacations, includes comfortable accommodations, intimate ships, good cuisine featuring regional specialties and sourced locally, wine, beer and soft drinks at lunch and dinner, and daily guided shore excursions. 

Included excursions ashore include use of a Quietvox audio system so you can hear the local guide. Or, of you prefer, the concierge can help organize optional tours, a shore side restaurant reservation, theater tickets, or private car and driver. Each itinerary offers an optional Privileged Access experience, such as behind-the-scenes access tour. Onboard enrichment talks, classes and performances are part of Viking's Culture Curriculum program.

Viking's destinations include cruises along the rivers of Europe, Russia, Ukraine, China, Southeast Asia and Egypt. Discover the Far East with a fascinating cruise tour along the Yangtze River or Mekong River. Take in the European countryside along the Danube, Rhine, Seine, Elbe or Douro.

Staterooms include comfortable beds with European duvets and linens, bottled water, bathrobes and slippers, and TVs with CNN, CNBC and ESPN, and wireless internet. Select from accommodations with a picture window, a French balcony with sliding glass door, or a suite with your own veranda.
