Viking Longship ItinerariesThe Viking Njord and other Longships sail at least a dozen different itineraries on the great rivers of Europe, including the Danube, Main, Rhine, and Moselle of Central Europe; the Saône, Rhône, Dordogne, Garonne and Gironde Rivers of France; and the rivers and waterways of the Netherlands. The itineraries range from 7 to 22 days, and with so many ships available, the itineraries can be combined into longer river voyages. Other Viking ships sail these same rivers, but also cruise on the Seine, Elbe, and Douro Rivers of Europe. Viking also operates river ships in Russia, Egypt, the Ukraine, China, and Southeast Asia.
What's Included on a Viking Longship Cruise?Many cruise travelers think river cruises are much more expensive that ocean cruises since the basic fare is higher. This difference is the way cruises are priced. Everything on an ocean cruise (except room and meals) is mostly a la carte. For example, cruise travelers almost always pay extra for shore excursions on ocean cruises. However, on a river cruise, most shore excursions are included in the basic fare. This difference can add up to hundreds of dollars per person. In addition, the Viking Longships feature complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks with onboard dinner and lunch service, plus free Wi-Fi, bottled water, and port charges. For many travelers, the total coast of a a river cruise vacation on a Viking Longship will not be much different than an ocean cruise.
