Viking River Cruises

River Cruising: A Better Way to Explore


Nothing compares to the river. Where else but on the river can you journey into the heart of the world’s greatest cities and towns, and discover the true nature of the land? Comfortable and convenient, it offers a greater variety of destinations that you couldn't encounter any other way. Spend less time getting there and more time being there. Little wonder that river cruising is the fastest-growing segment of the travel industry.

See the world's great Cities

Paris, Vienna, Budapest, St. Petersburg…because so many cities and towns developed along waterways, they were literally made to be accessible by river. Sail directly to the heart of many destinations and walk right off the ship into the center of town.

Travel with ease

After boarding the ship, unpack just once in your spacious river-view stateroom.

A more intimate experience

Because our ships accommodate between 120 and 260 guests, it is easy to make new friends. And there is no waiting in long lines to embark, disembark or have a meal.

New scenery: all day, every day

Imagine fairytale palaces, towering gorges carved through millennia, and tiny villages nestled in the still preserved beauty of the landscape. Enjoy breathtaking scenery that’s constantly changing through panoramic windows in the restaurant and lounge and stunning 360° views from the sun deck.

Culture & history everywhere

Stroll through an open air architecture museum in the middle of a Russian lake; watch the artists at work in a Meissenware studio; listen to a concert of ancient bronze bells in Wuhan. You are unlikely to reach these places any other way.
