Take A Viking River Cruise & Experience Luxury While You Learn, Explore & Understand
Exceptionally well-designed cruises bring you closer to the cultures of the world for more authentic experiences.From the Danube to the Yangtze, Viking River Cruises provides guests with access to an array of destinations that can't be reached by traditional cruise ships. All told, 19 deluxe Viking vessels - Scandinavian in design, boasting outside views in every single stateroom, and home to all the amenities you'd expect from the finest hotels - set sail throughout Europe, Russia, and China.
Viking's cruising heritage and rigorously high standards, which stretch back nearly two centuries, consistently capture the industry's highest honors. Travel + Leisure readers have once again voted Viking one of the "Top Small-Ship Cruise Lines" in the publication's annual "World's Best" poll, and Travel Weekly readers have recognized Viking as the number one river cruise line overall on multiple occasions.
Engineered For BeautyThe experience onboard a Viking ship is second to none. Come experience the art of exploring the world in comfort. Each ship has been thoughtfully engineered by nautical architects to bring the outside in with large, expansive windows. Graceful staterooms and suites are designed for ultimate comfort and serenity, and light-filled public spaces inspire and refresh you throughout your journey. Enjoy a river cruise ship that designed down to the smallest detail-from the light and airy Atrium to the relaxing Viking Lounge.
