One of the best ways to immerse yourself in new cultures is to explore the world by river. That is why Viking designed elegant, intimate ships with all the amenities of a fine hotel. Their innovative Viking Longships®—the newest and largest river fleet in Europe—feature premium amenities, river cruising’s first-ever true two-room suites, and the most al fresco dining on Europe’s rivers.
