Viking River Cruises fleet

Viking River Cruise Ships

Wherever you cruise with Viking River Cruises, and on whichever ship, you are guaranteed to receive the same fantastic experience across the Viking River Cruise fleet. Famed as the small ship experts, from Egypt to St Petersburg, you will find Viking’s synonymous Scandinavian design onboard each river ship.

Your Viking River Cruise Stateroom includes:

  • River view
  • Double or single beds with luxury lines and pillows
  • Fridge, safe, premium toiletries
  • Heated flooring, luxury shower and anti-fog mirror
  • Room service, steward and housekeeping twice daily

As well as their famous Viking longships, Viking river cruises have a number of unique ships in their fleet depending on the location. Mostly named after Norse gods or in honour of local deities, notable mentions in the Viking River Cruise fleet go to Viking Ra on the Nile, Viking Akun in Russia and Viking Mekong in Cambodia and Vietnam.

Viking River Cruises make the port the star of the show during your meals, with destination-focussed dining. With locally sourced, regionally-inspired cuisine, each meal is as much an experience of the local culture as the fascinating tours. With many overnight stops in port too, there are also many onboard performance from local dancers, artists and singers, chefs and lecturers to further enrich your experience of the destination and immerse you in the entire river cruise experience.

When not on a fascinating excursion or sampling delicious gastronomy, you can relax onboard the ship and watch the scenery go by. Either stay in your cabin with a great view out from your bed, or head to the lounge area to socialise and sun deck to enjoy the weather as you take in the idyllic scenery of the Nile or dramatic valleys of the Rhine. For those looking to have some quiet time, meanwhile, guests will find a great spa facility, library and even pool or hot tub on a number of Viking river ships.

Viking Longships

With their uniquely designed longships offering numerous varieties of staterooms and focussing on going deep into each port’s culture and history, Viking are pioneers of river cruising. Each named after a god and styled with Scandinavian touches, Viking river ships are purpose built to conquer their waterways from the Danube and Rhine to the Nile and Mekong

Follow the course of the Nordic explorers of old and create your own adventure with Viking river cruises. With space for only 190 guests on board, these longships are light, airy and wonderfully spacious, with a level of comfort and camaraderie that is no longer found on the gradually growing giants of the sea.

While on a Viking river cruise, you can expect to have luxurious accommodation with hotel-style beds and wonderfully decorated suites. Most cabins offer grand river-side views so you can just relax and watch the world go by or, if you want an even better view, there is the open Sun Deck. No matter where you are, the views you get are guaranteed to be world-class as you travel through the hearts of cities like Paris, Amsterdam and Budapest, and even the smaller villages and towns like Rudesheim or Heidelberg, known for its red sandstone castle and Gothic renaissance architecture.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
