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—one that is designed to blend seamlessly with the spectacular panorama of ever-changing views.
Leading the Way in Innovative Design
The Viking Longships have arrived on Europe’s great rivers! With patented designs for both stateroom configuration and the ship’s bow, these vessels are at the cutting edge of design. Renowned Norwegian maritime architects Yran & Storbraaten have created an interior that whispers elegance at every turn—learn more about these amazing ships here. Like the Longships, Viking Prestige and Viking Legend are “green” ships featuring diesel-electric hybrid engines specially designed for low vibration and minimal environmental impact.
The Newest Ships & 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 Jewels of Russia & China
Explore lands afar, with all the comforts of home. Viking Rurik, Viking Helgi, Viking Ingvar and Viking Truvor have all recently been completely refurbished, and are by far the best river cruise ships in Russia—by 2013 every Russia ship will feature private verandas on Upper and Middle decks. In China, the sparkling new Viking Emerald offers the largest suites in river cruising and a private veranda in every stateroom from which you can watch the wonders of the Yangtze unfold before you.
