Best River Cruise Line
Best Way To See Russia
Viking advantages—quality, service and value

Viking River Cruises operates the world’s largest fleet of 21 deluxe vessels built specifically for river travel. With over 175 years of heritage in European river cruising, we are the most knowledgeable company in the business. Viking was the first to offer river trips in Russia, and our China management team has decades of experience helping Americans see China. As a result, more than half a million people have joined Viking on magical, enlightening journeys through these exciting places.


Elegant, Comfortable Ships

Viking ships are Scandinavian in design, with open, airy interiors by famed maritime architects Yran & Storbraaten. Guests enjoy all the amenities they might expect in a fine hotel, plus expansive, panoramic views throughout.

Spacious Accommodations
Every stateroom has an “outside” river view with a sitting area near the window or balcony for viewing, and on every ship, most windows open to the fresh air. Enjoy the comfort of hotel-style beds with European comforters and duvets, and satellite television with CNN and other programming.

Classic, Gourmet Cuisine
Enjoy sumptuous breakfasts and gourmet lunches and dinners with Viking. Created by European and celebrity chefs, our menus incorporate regional specialties with American fare to delight the most discriminating palate. While meals are casual, open-seating affairs, the atmosphere is always elegant.

Consistently Excellent Service
Wherever we sail, you enjoy the same standard of service—because we manage it all: nautical, technical, catering, sightseeing and guides. We operate all vessels ourselves, with headquarters in Switzerland and offices in both Russia and China.

Deep Cultural Enrichment
With Viking, you explore the places you visit with expert Program Directors who provide background, context and a regional perspective. Demonstrations, lectures and workshops supplement your on-shore exploration. All this adds up to a personalized, in-depth experience wherever you travel with Viking.

All-Inclusive Packages
Your fare covers meals, shore excursions, lectures and cultural performances; it also covers hotel accommodations during city portions of “cruisetour” itineraries. And when you purchase air travel through Viking, we transfer you to and from the airport, ship and hotels at no additional charge.

Great Travel Value
Due to our close relationships with air carriers, you can get a great deal on airfare with Viking. Of course, the included transfers to ship and hotel save you even more. And enjoy additional savings by reserving early (Early Booking Incentive), traveling with us more than once and referring your friends—you can even earn free travel by putting together a group.

I want to second what Gerry said. I have been checking your website every month for a review of one of the new longships. Are you planning to review one any time soon?

Some eight trains a day link Vienna with Budapest (3,5 hours) .Trains are pliuetfnl and point-to-point tickets are cheap (in the region of 20 euro from budapest to bratislava and 10 euro bratislava to vienna), you should not be worried by the prospect of having to buy more than one ticket to cover your trip (although you could theoretically buy one ticket budapest-vienna via bratislava which is valid 2 months, if you really want to do so). you should consider that bratislava to vienna is a very short trip and allows commuting back and forth in a day if you so wish.
