“Travelling with the Best”As the recipient of multiple yearly reader survey awards, Viking River Cruises shows you the world’s great rivers like no other cruise line can. With perfectly crafted itineraries detailing the best the regions have to offer, you’ll experience historic rivers from an entirely different vantage point. Viking operates the world’s most extensive river cruise fleet, including the new Viking Longships on their European itineraries. Whether it’s Europe and Russia, Egypt or China, precious time is never wasted stuck in traffic or waiting at train stations and airports. Just unpack once and enjoy!
Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, your meals with Viking will become a daily highlight. Exquisitely prepared, using regional and seasonal ingredients, the culture of the land outside manifests in the meal on your plate. Authentic and traditional local dishes are accompanied by Western favourites to suit just about every palate.
Breakfast is best taken-in outside on the sun deck. Watch river life unfold as you sip your fresh brewed Viennese coffee. Duck inside for a selection of local cold breakfast meats and cheeses, fresh fruit and still warm breads and pastries.
For those choosing to remain on board, lunch never disappoints. Enjoy a hearty borscht on the Volga, a complex goulash on the Danube or a satisfying pho on the Mekong. If a sandwich is more your style, try it with a local Czech Pilsner or a crisp French Sauvignon Blanc.
Dinners are open-seating affairs and a gourmet food lover’s dream. Your 5 course meal can be as traditional as a local restaurant’s or as tasty and comforting as a meal back home. Flavoured with fresh herbs from the chef’s own sun deck garden, the roasted lamb, grilled steak and poached salmon all benefit. Come hungry and stay late for the chocolate fondue on the terrace and wash it down with a cold glass of German Riesling, under the stars. Wine with lunch and dinner is included in your cruise fare.
All shipboard gratuities to shipboard personnel are voluntary and not included in your prepaid cruise fare. Tipping for good service can either be done in cash or can be simply added to your stateroom’s bill to be paid at the end of your trip.
Local tour guide tips are also not included and should be paid in cash at the end of each tour.
Due to the nature of the cruise itineraries and the ambiance Viking River Cruises would like to uphold, children are discouraged as no services or facilities are in place to accommodate them. Minors (under 18 years of age) must be accompanied and share a cabin with a parent or legal guardian. Children under the age of 12 are not allowed.
