Viking River Cruises
As the UK's leading river cruise specialist, Blue Water Holidays has worked with Viking River Cruises since 2002. Viking now operates one of the largest fleets in Europe, with Scandinavian influenced design giving 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 award-winning Viking Longships bring sit-on balcony cabins to the fleet, with larger suites, an indoor/outdoor lounge, and hybrid engine power.
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 sit-on private balcony - all with complimentary bottled water, bath products and modern amenities.
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.
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.
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.
