As the world’s leading river cruise line, since its 1997 inception the company has grown to a fleet of 64 river vessels, offering scenic cruising along the rivers of Europe, Russia, China, Egypt and Southeast Asia. Their innovative, award-winning Viking Longships have set the standard in river cruising: their intimate vessels have all the amenities of a fine hotel, providing the ideal opportunity to comfortably be transported each day to and from your next destination—where enriching discoveries are usually just a short walk from your ship. Viking Ra, having been completely refitted and refurbished last year, starts operating 12-day cruises on the River Nile in March. Named after the Egyptian sun god Ra, the ship accommodates 52 passengers (all in suites).

Viking firmly believe that you should not have to open your wallet every time you want a cup of coffee, a glass of wine or an excursion ashore. Instead, their goal is to provide you with great value, and therefore have designed their cruises to give you more for your money with a cruise fare that includes everything you need, from meals and beverages to shore excursions and Wi-Fi. That is what is called Viking Inclusive Value.
