The New Viking Longships

Welcome to the future of river cruising

Heralding a new era in European river cruising, the Viking Longships have arrived. These revolutionary vessels are setting innovative standards in style, space and comfort. With names inspired by the celebrated Viking gods, the Viking Longships represent a quantum leap in design, elegance, and state-of-the-art engineering. Guests enjoy:

  • A radical new patent-pending design which allows for full-size staterooms combined with full-size verandas
  • Large suites with a veranda outside the living room and French balcony in the bedroom
  • French balcony staterooms featuring floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors
  • Two sumptuous 445 sq. ft. Explorer Suites with private wraparound verandas and 270° views
  • Deluxe amenities like premium bath products and high-definition in-room entertainment
  • The all-new Aquavit Terrace—an indoor/outdoor area at the bow of the ship for viewing, relaxing and casual dining
  • Quiet, environmentally friendly hybrid engines, solar panels and an organic herb garden on the large sun deck
  • Fine cuisine, exemplary service and immersive, culture-rich itineraries—all the things you have come to expect from Viking

The links above are your gateway to the new Viking Longships—peruse photos and videos, explore an interactive deck plan, enjoy the gala christening event and see which itineraries the ships will sail.


When you cruise with Viking you sail with the world’s leading river cruise company, and you enjoy the rewards of more than 175 years of heritage and a level of expertise second to none.

Inspiring destinations, beautifully crafted itineraries, expert tour guides, luxurious ships, fine cuisine, excellent service, remarkable value—our success is defined by all these things, and something else, too: personal attention to every detail. It’s the way the bartender has your drink ready for you, at just the right time. It’s the gentle guidance from your tai chi master in a lesson you take while sailing along the Yangtze. It’s the handwritten directions from your concierge to the best coffeehouse in Vienna.

At Viking, we never forget that looking after you is why we have become the world’s favorite river cruise line, and why our guests return to cruise with us again and again. Indeed, it is our guests who are our greatest ambassadors, making us the most honored river cruise line in the world.

If you have experienced the pleasure of traveling with us, then you will appreciate what makes a river cruise with Viking so special. And if that experience is still ahead of you, then it is one you are sure to enjoy.

We have also been honored by prestigious international organizations like the World Travel Awards. Meanwhile, travel agents have recognized us with awards including TravelAge West’s Best Line for River Cruising and Travel Weekly’s #1 River Cruise Line.

Choice. Service. Value. Viking.

With the largest and best fleet of deluxe river cruise ships, more awards than any other river cruise line, choice in every aspect of your vacation and incredible, all-inclusive value, it’s no wonder that more than half a million people have joined Viking on magical, enlightening journeys along the world’s great waterways.

The Best Destinations

Europe. Russia. Ukraine. China. Southeast Asia. Egypt. Viking sails itineraries in six different regions, offering you a choice of the world’s best destinations. And there is no better way to discover each region’s great cities, charming towns and scenic countryside than sailing along its magnificent rivers.

Your Vacation, Your Choice

A selection of spacious, stylish accommodations, all with an outside river view. An exceptional variety of mouth-watering meals, from traditional dishes to contemporary cuisine. Tours that touch on topics from history and culture to art and architecture. And exciting extensions to maximize your time abroad. Each aspect and every day, you make the choices to make the most of your vacation.

Great Service Speaks for Itself

From the first call with a Viking travel consultant to the time you return home, you and your Viking experience is our utmost concern. Anticipating your needs, exceeding your expectations and ensuring every moment of your trip is a rewarding journey—our staff is there with you every step of the way. As the most awarded river cruise line, Viking’s service speaks for itself.

All-Inclusive Means Value-Packed

Viking is the most all-inclusive of all river cruise lines. The price covers just about everything: accommodations, meals, port charges, wi-fi, lectures, activities and shore excursions. And with one call, you can reserve it all—cruise, land, air—your next all-inclusive, value-packed, enriching, engaging river cruise vacation.

The Viking fleet—our pride, your joy

Elegant. Stylish. Exceptionally comfortable. The world’s largest fleet of river cruise ships is also the most beautiful. And since we operate all the vessels in our fleet, there is no detail that goes unnoticed. On board, you are greeted with an abundance of space with room to relax, fresh air to breathe and all the comforts of a fine hotel—one that is designed to blend seamlessly with the spectacular panorama of ever-changing views.

Leading the Way in Innovative Design

The Viking Longships have arrived on Europe’s great rivers! With patent-pending designs for both stateroom configuration and the ship’s bow, these vessels are at the cutting edge of design. Renowned Norwegian maritime architects Yran & Storbraaten have created an interior that whispers elegance at every turn—learn more about these amazing ships here. Like the Longships, Viking Prestige and Viking Legend are “green” ships featuring diesel-electric hybrid engines specially designed for low vibration and minimal environmental impact.

The Newest Ships & Largest Staterooms

Designed to cruise the world’s great rivers, all Viking ships are built, above all, for comfort. On our newest ships you can look forward to the most spacious staterooms, with French balconies and full verandas and hotel-style beds throughout. You will be pampered with quality linens, premium bath products, complimentary bottled water and an in-room entertainment system with a choice of channels and programs.

Optimal Viewing

Featuring a backdrop of picture-perfect landscapes, the lounge, dining areas and sun deck are wonderful places to relax and unwind. You can also capture the ever-changing views from the comfort of your private sanctuary, because every stateroom is “outside” with a veranda, French balcony or window.

The Jewels of Russia & China

Explore lands afar, with all the comforts of home. Viking Rurik, Viking Helgi, Viking Ingvar and Viking Truvor have all recently been completely refurbished, and are by far the best river cruise ships in Russia—by 2013 every Russia ship will feature private verandas on Upper and Middle decks. In China, the sparkling new Viking Emerald offers the largest suites in river cruising and a private veranda in every stateroom from which you can watch the wonders of the Yangtze unfold before you.
