Viking River Cruises

Maritime Travel Perk: Up to $350 USD per stateroom to spend onboard + bottle of wine!

Established in 1997, Viking Cruises is the world’s largest river cruise company, with ships sailing the rivers of Europe, Russia and the Ukraine, Egypt and China. Cruise ships average just 150 passengers and often dock right in the heart of town, providing “walk off your ship” access into Europe.

“I spent 15 wonderful days on a Viking river cruise sailing the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, taking me from Budapest to Amsterdam. Viking’s excursions were top-notch and the food was excellent. It was so enjoyable to sit on the top deck and admire the beautiful castles on the banks of the Rhine, as we sailed along. A very civilized way to see a very civilized part of the world!”

– Janice Frioult, Maritime Travel counsellor, Cranbrook, BC
