A small river vessel of only 112 passengers and sister to the Viking Schumann, the Viking Fontane has been designed to fit the shallow Elbe River, with an 80cm draft and pump jets that minimise impact with the riverbed at low levels. While significantly smaller than the other ships, the Fontane has just as much character as the other ships in the Viking Fleet.

Cuisine and Dining on Viking Fontane

Unlike the Longships, these ships only have two areas on board that travellers can go to for their dining. The primary area is the Restaurant. The casual elegance of the Restaurant is a defining point of Viking’s river cruises, providing outstanding views of the scenery with its panoramic windows and specially prepared regional specialties on fine china.

You can also head to the Observation Lounge, a place of relaxation where passengers gather on the classy evenings for fine wine and conversation while enjoying the passing scenery.

Entertainment on Viking Fontane

The Viking ships are designed more for the culturally invested and traditional travellers. As such, there are a number of demonstrations, cooking classes and dance performances on board. 

Viking offers talks and lectures regarding the history of places you visit, from the Dutch Masters or French impressionists to the life and works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Included in these talks are tastes of the local wines and cuisines as well as lessons in key words and phrases of different languages. All of which are enhanced by the exemplary excursions on land.

Recreation on Viking Fontane

In the times where you are just looking to sit back and relax, there is a Library and internet room for the literary travellers to partake in. 

While there is no fitness suite/gym and the ship also loses the Walking Track normally found on the longships, there is plenty of time on land during excursions or even a stroll to exercise and partake in a number of activities available.
