Accommodation

An innovative and creative departure from traditional ship layout and design, the Viking Longships offer you a choice in stateroom category and configuration. From spacious Veranda Staterooms and French Balcony Staterooms with a sliding glass door, to the two-room Veranda Suites, each offers casual comfort and excellent river views. Or choose one of two stunning Explorer Suites—the largest on Europe's rivers—with a wraparound veranda providing 270° views.

Whichever Stateroom you choose, the understated elegance and furnishings will provide the most comfortable river cruise experience available.

Decks
Dining

It’s been said that the best way to know a culture is through its food and wine. Both engage your senses and provide a window into the traditions and essence of a land. Viking's trained chefs are passionate about food and committed to providing a complete culinary experience.   

Entertainment
Health and fitness

While your ship does not have any fitness equipment, feel free to walk the walking track on the Sun Deck for your daily exercise, or take part in our shore excursions and walking tours. In many major cities, you may access nearby First-Class hotels and use their Fitness Center and Spa facilities as part of Viking’s relationship with those hotels. See your onboard Concierge for details.  

Kids and Teens

Due to the nature of Viking cruises, they do not maintain specific facilities or services for children aboard cruise vessels. In the circumstances you and all members of your party must be aged 18 or over on or before the day you are scheduled to embark on the cruise vessel.

Enrichment

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.
