Viking River Itineraries

Viking offers some 30 itineraries lasting anywhere from one to three weeks. The destination-intensive itineraries give passengers maximized sightseeing opportunities, with English-speaking guides, motorcoach tours and guided visits to treasured landmarks.

In Europe, cruises sail on some of the Continent's most scenic waterways, including the Rhine, which flows through Switzerland, France, Germany and Holland; and the Main and Danube Rivers, which cross through Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. Other itineraries feature trips on the Elbe in eastern Germany and the Czech Republic with stops in Berlin and Prague; the Rhone, Saone and Seine Rivers in France; the Neva and Volga in Russia (with stopovers in St Petersburg and Moscow); and the Dnieper in the Ukraine, where passengers explore Cossack traditions and take tours of palaces and monasteries in Kiev and Odessa.

In China, cruisetours, which combine land and river components, feature visits to places such as Beijing, the Terra Cotta Warriors, the Three Gorges, Lesser Gorges and Three Gorges Dam. All cruisetours are fully escorted from airport arrival to departure by English-speaking guides. The company's Western management oversees all aspects of the trip, and local offices in Beijing and Chongqing ensure in-country management as well. Onboard Chinese meals are designed by Martin Yan and alternate with Western menus.

Viking's cruise along the Mekong River through Vietnam and Cambodia includes overnights in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. There are also visits to ancient Khmer monuments, temples of Angkor Wat and the floating markets.

From the U.S., the company also offers Nile River and Lake Nasser itineraries in Egypt on chartered ships, and Viking has announced it will become the first European river cruise company to enter the Mississippi River cruise market in America. The company is expected to use a modified Viking Longship design, similar in style to the ships that sail Europe's rivers but different in dimension and passenger capacity. Unlike the two river boats currently sailing the Mississippi (American Queen and Queen of the Mississippi), the Viking ship will not have a paddlewheel.
