In 2012, the year the first Viking Longships were launched, the editors of Cruise Critic recognised the entire Viking Longship fleet as Best River Cruise Ship. This was the first time this honour had ever been awarded to more than one ship. Viking's fleet has always had a tradition of setting the new standards, and the Viking Longships are no exception. Since their launch, the Longships have received great acclaim for their state-of-the-art engineering, innovative design and outstanding quality.
Docking Advantage- Viking’s exclusive rights to premier docking locations means you can step into the heart of the city for your included excursion in every port.
Going Green- Offering a remarkably quiet ride, the Viking Longships' energy-efficient hybrid engines propel the ships along Europe's fabled waterways. Taking the next step in environmental responsibility, Viking has added two additional 'green' features: solar panels and an organic herb garden atop the sun deck.
Tipping & Gratuities for shipboard crew, local guides, and drivers are included in your cruise programs.

As with your stateroom, the public areas are designed to make the most of the splendid views. Whether from the sun deck, the Lounge or the restaurant, a river cruise provides uninterrupted sightseeing, from the time the morning mist rises from the water to when the setting sun announces the end to another remarkable day.
Let the staff treat you to personalised service, fine wines and delicious, regional cuisine. Engage in immersive cultural activities. Take advantage of the wide array of amenities, from the onboard Concierge to ship-wide Wi-Fi and 24-hour beverage bar.

Hands-on demonstrations, cooking classes, traditional dance performances, and local tastings. These in-depth experiences are included as an essential part of discovering more about the places through which you cruise, and each activity is planned specifically to illuminate each itinerary.
Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. We offer a series of onboard multimedia talks to shed light on the history and culture of the places you visit. Topics may include the Dutch Masters or French impressionists, castles along the Rhine Valley, the formation of the European Union, the life and works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the wine and cuisine of southern France, and key words and phrases in the local language wherever you are traveling. These presentations provide a context for your own observations, enhancing your travel experience.
