Viking Danube Entertainment
Most of the entertainment revolves around the daily escorted shore excursions either by motorcoach and/or walking tours to museums, abbeys, and various sights of historical and cultural interest, and may also include activities such as concerts and wine tasting. Well-informed, articulate guides greatly enhance the overall river cruise experience by providing a wealth of information on each port. Passengers are provided with guidebooks, maps and other reading material concerning every port on the itinerary. Onboard entertainment is limited as the Viking Danube has no stage shows, cabarets or casino Guest speakers occasionally come onboard to deliver lectures and there are demonstrations and performances by local artisans. Passengers also entertain themselves by reading and playing cards in the library which also has a good selection of board games. Two movies are screened daily on one of the cabin's TV channels.
Viking Danube Public Rooms
While there is far less public space than on the typical ocean cruise ship, the amount of space devoted to public rooms is designed to fit comfortably into the Viking Danube's long, narrow three deck configuration. The stylish lounge, which is the largest public area, features a contemporary Scandinavian design and is well appointed and tastefully furnished. Surrounded by picture windows, the lounge is located in the forward section of the upper deck and serves as the primary gathering place where passengers can read and relax as well as meet and socialize before and after meals. It also plays host to talks and slide presentations by guest lectures as well occasional performances by local entertainers at various ports and also serves as the nightly venue for after-dinner music and dancing.

A sun deck with lounge chairs at the top of the ship provides excellent views of the passing scene. Other public rooms include a well stocked library in the aft section of the upper deck, which is adjacent to the ship's compact fitness room, and a small souvenir shop just outside the lounge.
Viking Danube Spa & Fitness
A nondescript fitness room contains a whirlpool, two saunas and three exercise machines (stair stepper, stationery bicycle and rowing machine). There is also a small swimming pool on the sun deck.
