SMALL SHIP EXPERTS
On a Viking river ship, you will sail into the heart of your destination, so you can explore up close and in depth. Innovative, award-winning Viking Longships have set the standard in river cruising: intimate vessels have all the amenities of a fine hotel, providing the ideal opportunity to travel to a new destination each day, where enriching discoveries are usually just a short walk from your ship.
‘Grandfather Rights’ on Europe’s waterways mean Viking owns the docking locations and therefore has priority, and you arrive at the heart of your destination.
Culture Curriculum, an exclusive onboard program, brings local history to life with lectures on history and art, tastings of vintage wines from your destinations, restaurant menus inspired by local cuisine, informative port talks and enriching destination performances of regional and classical music.
DESTINATION FOCUSED DINING
