One of the best ways to explore some of the most fascinating destinations in the world such as France, China or Italy is from the deck of a Viking River Cruise. A Viking River Cruise visits at least one port a day on just about every Viking itinerary and passengers can explore off-the-beaten path areas that are typically inaccessible via a regular ocean cruise.
Viking River Cruises typically dock in the heart of most towns which gives passengers endless opportunities to spend more time touring scenic cities instead of just traveling to the cities. Viking River Cruise passengers will have a front seat to the ever-changing riverside scenery as well as local nightlife when the ship is in port.
Featured on the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List and recognized as the “world’s best” by Travel + Leisure magazine, Viking River Cruises is the worlds largest river cruise line featuring 25 beautiful ships that feel more like an upscale hotel rather than a river boat. With names like Burgundy, Neptune and Century Sun, Viking River Cruises are available across the globe from Russia to Rome and everywhere in between highlighting the rivers of Europe, Russia, Ukraine & China.
In Europe, the Rhine, Main, Moselle, Danube, Elbe, and Seine; in Russia the Volga; and in China, the Yangtze River. Viking’s deluxe ships average 150 passengers for Europe and just 186 for China.
Viking River Cruises include tours of and stops in and around small towns and villages, cosmopolitan cities, daily trips ashore, historic sites and natural wonders. In Europe & Russia, Viking River Cruises’ Old World Highlights program features folkloric entertainment, lectures and demonstrations and daily shore excursions led by well-traveled, English-speaking guides.
