On board, guests will enjoy lectures and port talks, cooking demonstrations, wine tastings and entertaining performances. Many port calls include tours of UNESCO World Heritage sites. The line's intimate vessels dock right in the heart of town, putting you within walking distance of shops, restaurants and attractions. Some itineraries also include hotel stays with additional guided city tours.
With Viking Inclusive Value, everything you need is covered in the upfront price: your river-view stateroom, one shore excursion in every port of call, unlimited Wi-Fi, all onboard meals with complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks at lunch and dinner, and all port taxes and fees. Specialty coffees, teas and bottled water are available at all times on the ship. Meals served in the onboard restaurants highlight regional cuisine and use locally sourced ingredients.
Viking Longships celebrate innovative engineering and understated elegance, with public areas that embrace the outdoors and feature spaces filled with natural light. The Aquavit Terrace at the bow of each 190-guest vessel serves as a viewing area and a spot for alfresco dining. Half the staterooms boast full-size balconies, and among the accommodation options are 445-square-foot Explorer Suites with two full rooms and private wraparound verandas.
Viking launches a new ship this month on the Nile River -- the 82-passenger Viking Aton. The new Viking Hathor will join the Aton on the Nile next year.

Explore medieval towns, historic fortresses and grand cathedrals amid a scenic wintry backdrop. Viking will also introduce a new WWII itinerary in 2024 to commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day, the 1944 landing of Allied troops on the shores of northwest France.
