Viking River Cruises is long established, operating one of the largest fleets in Europe. Scandinavian influenced design gives a calm, contemporary and luxurious feel. Light and airy cabins, all with a river view, offer the comforts of a fine hotel yet with ever-changing scenery.

The new Viking 'Longships' bring veranda sit-on balcony cabins to the fleet, larger suites, an indoor/outdoor lounge, and hybrid engine power. See full details of the Viking Longships.

Your choice of cabin style

Viking's fleet of ships offer a choice of en-suite cabins. Choose a cabin with a picture window, a French balcony with sliding glass doors, or a suite with its own balcony - all with complimentary bottled water, bath products and comfortable slippers.

Dining and restaurant

Choose where you wish to sit in the open seating restaurant with its informal dress code - no dinner jacket required. Breakfast is buffet style, lunch offers yet more choice, and the five-course dinner offers traditional dishes as well as contemporary cuisine. House wine, beer and soft drinks are complimentary at lunch and dinner, with tea and coffee available at any time.

Onboard amenities

In addition to the spacious lounge and open-air sundeck with its 360 degree views, most Viking ships have a well-stocked library. Free wireless Internet is available.

English-speaking staff provide friendly, award-winning service, and Viking's onboard Concierge can handle your every request.

Shore excursions

You can look forward to at least one shore excursion almost every day - all included in the cost of your holiday. Led by expert English-speaking guides, the tours give you a deeper understanding of the places you are visiting. Quietvox tour headphones ensure that every word of the commentary is clear and audible.

For independent explorers, the useful complimentary Travel Companion book is full of information, maps, and local stories.

Included flights and transfers

Flight inclusive packages from the UK are fully bonded with the CAA's ATOL scheme so your money is protected. Included in the price is return travel from London, airport taxes, transfers, and hotel accommodation where specified in the itinerary. As a leading Viking partner, Blue Water can offer UK regional flights at no extra cost.

Selected Europe itineraries are available with rail travel on Eurostar's premium service. Itineraries are also available as without travel for those who prefer to make their own travel arrangements.
