Viking River Cruises—traveling with the best
When you cruise with Viking you sail with the world’s leading river cruise company, and you enjoy the rewards of more than 175 years of heritage and a level of expertise second to none.
Inspiring destinations, beautifully crafted itineraries, expert tour guides, luxurious ships, fine cuisine, excellent service, remarkable value—our success is defined by all these things, and something else, too: personal attention to every detail. It’s the way the bartender has your drink ready for you, at just the right time. It’s the gentle guidance from your tai chi master in a lesson you take while sailing along the Yangtze. It’s the handwritten directions from your concierge to the best coffeehouse in Vienna.
At Viking, we never forget that looking after you is why we have become the world’s favorite river cruise line, and why our guests return to cruise with us again and again. Indeed, it is our guests who are our greatest ambassadors, making us the most honored river cruise line in the world.
If you have experienced the pleasure of traveling with us, then you will appreciate what makes a river cruise with Viking so special. And if that experience is still ahead of you, then it is one you are sure to enjoy.

We have consistently placed high on competitive rankings like Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List, Reader’s Choice and Best Small Ships awards; and Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best; we have also been honored by prestigious international organizations like the World Travel Awards. Meanwhile, travel agents have recognized us with awards including TravelAge West’s Best Line for River Cruising and Travel Weekly’s #1 River Cruise Line. And Viking is featured in National Geographic’s The 10 Best of Everything.
Amid the lush vineyards of Bordeaux, Chef Georges Gotrand demonstrates for Karine the long-standing regional tradition of searing beef outdoors using weathered grapevines as his grill. Boeuf Bordelaise is impressive yet simple to prepare, and a very chic way to serve steak. Even if you don't have a vineyard of your own to cook in, this classic French dish translates well to the American kitchen. Serve it with a local vintage from Saint-Émilion, the medieval town just to the east of Bordeaux, and recreate an authentic French cuisine experience

“A fabulous trip. All our expectations were met or exceeded—great food, service, excursions, and we met some great people. We will be taking another Viking cruise.” Ray & Suzanne
What a great time! The reality far exceeded the expectations of this trip. The pre-stay in Amsterdam was full of history and fun discovery. Once we boarded the ship the services and staff were first-class each and every moment of our trip. We loved the Rhine River from Amsterdam to Basel; the sights and tours were spectacular and full of history and facts from local guides. We have cruised a number of times; this was our first river cruise but it won’t be our last. Thank you, Viking—and please give a great big shout-out to the Viking Jarl crew, staff and captain for a wonderful trip. The Sullivans 2013
