The Amazing Viking River Cruise Ships!

Viking river cruise ships have it all! With state-of-the-art engineering, deluxe accommodations and streamlined Scandinavian interiors.

The Viking Longships are revolutionary vessels that are part of Viking’s award-winning European fleet.

Quite literally, they  exude pure class, luxury and style and need to be seen to be believed! 


Let’s start with the Aquavit Terrace with its revolutionary indoor and outdoor viewing area at the bow of the ship. This spacious seating area which houses special grills is perfect for having a casual meal al fresco, meeting friends for drinks or reading a book, all while enjoying breathtaking views and basking in the fresh air. 




Next we have the beautiful restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows for amazing panoramic views. Gaze at breathtaking scenery as you dine on regional specialties and contemporary cuisine. The atmosphere is casual yet elegant, with high-quality table linens, china, cutlery and glassware at every meal.




The bar, which is located in the Lounge, is lively and inviting – a gathering place for guests to view the scenery, have a drink and catch up on the day with friends.




The accommodation is absolutely wonderful and boasts real home comforts. For example, the French Balcony Staterooms are extremely comfortable and airy, with hotel-style beds, a private bathroom, roomy closets and storage space, and amenities like 40″ flat-panel TVs and premium bath products. Add to that sweeping river views to enjoy absolute luxury at its best.




For a bit more decadence, you can’t go wrong with the the spacious Explorer Suites – featuring separate sleeping and sitting quarters, a wraparound veranda with amazing 270° views, a French balcony and modern amenities such as telephone, refrigerator, safe, hair dryer & bottled water replenished daily – wow!




Last but not least the light and airy ship’s soaring atrium-style lobby rivals those of the finest hotels. 

You will also find an elevator that takes you from Middle to Upper Deck.
