VIKING RIVER CRUISES...TRAVEL WITH THE BEST

Enjoy the Vacation of a Lifetime with Viking River Cruises & Dream Vacations

Award-winning Viking River Cruises prides itself on providing top-notch accommodations, unique itineraries, and impeccable service. The world’s largest fleet of river cruise ships features elegantly decorated interiors and cutting-edge design; Viking’s “green” ships even boast diesel-electric hybrid engines. And all-inclusive cruise fares mean you don’t have to pull out your wallet for every cocktail or shore excursion, so you can relax and simply enjoy your once-in-a-lifetime vacation through the rivers of Europe, Russia, Asia, and beyond.

On board your Viking River Cruise ship, stretch out in your spacious room with a hotel-style bed and a view of the passing landscape via your own private veranda, French balcony with sliding-glass doors, or picture window. Relax in the library, lounge, or bar, and help yourself to 24-hour complimentary cappuccino, coffee, and tea. When it comes time to explore on shore, Viking’s tour guides will introduce you to your port city’s art, culture and history with ease and expertise.

Viking River Cruises takes fine dining very seriously, from its expertly prepared meals to its cooking classes, demonstrations, and food and wine tastings. Viking chefs use only fresh, local ingredients – the Viking Longships even feature organic herb gardens on the sun deck. Wake up to a breakfast buffet in the dining room, lunch al fresco on the sun deck, and sit down to a gourmet five-course menu at dinner time. Viking’s unique “Taste of...” events introduce you to the culinary delights of the destinations on your itinerary, from German leberwurst to Italian wine – all complimentary, of course. Combine Viking River Cruises’ five-star amenities and Dream Vacations’s unbeatable deals, and you have a river cruise vacation to rival the very best.
