Viking River Cruises

Viking River Cruises is the world's largest river cruise line. Its ships sail the rivers of Europe, Russia and China. Viking was the first to offer river trips in Russia. Viking ships are Scandinavian in design, with open, airy interiors by famed maritime architects Yran & Storbraaten. Viking River Cruises' ships average just 150 passengers, and often dock right in the heart of town, providing "walk off your ship" access into Europe. Guided shore excursions in each port of call are included in passengers' cruise fares.

Fellow passengers: Viking River Cruise passengers are generally English speaking well-travelled cruise veterans in the 55+ age bracket.
