To ensure your journey is smooth and that you are able to fully enjoy your voyage as planned, we highly recommend that all guests take a pre-departure COVID-19 test, no more than three days prior to beginning your journey.
Enjoy fresh air in your stateroom, knowing that all staterooms on Viking river ships feature independent air handling units that do not share air with other areas of the ship. Take comfort in knowing that the air in the public areas of your ship has also been purified with new short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) lights and high-density filters, which kill 99.99% of all airborne viruses and bacteria.
While every precaution can reduce the risk of illness, we are also prepared for that outcome. Each of our vessels has always had a state-of-the-art Medical Center; those facilities have now been upgraded with more specialized equipment. We have also launched a new 24/7 hotline staffed by doctors, specifically for our river cruises.
Rest assured that the surfaces on your ship will be cleaned and sanitized continuously with daily scheduled deep cleanings. You will notice more hand sanitization stations throughout your ship. And on our ocean and expedition ships, we are using new sanitization robots that utilize UV-C light to treat surfaces in guest and crew public areas—an industry first.
Dining & Entertainment
On your ship, you can expect spacious, airy public areas and abundant options for al fresco dining. Also, on our ocean voyages, as always, you can enjoy complimentary 24-hour room service. Now, more options for spaced seating in all dining venues will allow for physical distancing; there will be additional table service at all bars and lounges; and new capabilities will allow you to watch more live events and enriching content through your in-room entertainment system.
Physical Distancing & Face Masks
Public health experts agree that proper physical distancing and the use of face masks are effective in helping slow the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses. Face masks are optional while moving about the ship. Please note: Viking’s Medical Team continually monitors conditions and may deem face masks to be necessary while moving about the ship, based on conditions at the time of travel. While ashore, guests will need to comply with any local guidelines for face masks and physical distancing. Face masks continue to be required for all crew.
Local Partner Training
As part of the Viking Health & Safety Program, we will regularly train every local partner, including motor coach drivers and tour guides. While ashore, Viking’s measures will meet or exceed local guidelines for social distancing and other precautions.
If we had questions we could always call & get answers. This was our first river cruise so we were unfamiliar with what to bring, etc. the cruise was everything we expected & more. Thank you Shannon.
Ship was unable to sail the majority of the time secondary to the low water level; this greatly affected my experience. I am aware that Viking cannot control the weather but was informed that the water level had been low for several weeks prior to our trip and the ships had been unable/limited to sail for several weeks. I was only given about 24 hours notice of this situation and therefore unable to cancel/change my vacation. I paid for a cruise and basically got a bus tour. All in all though, the service and accommodations were excellent.
Our next trip will definitely be arranged with Affordable Tours. My wife and I appreciated the excellent care, information, and rapid responses that our tour consultant provided for us. I have recommended Affordable Tours to many of my friends.
last year we went down the danube river cruise and was impressed with the service, food, and the itinary. . It was our first cruise so we really had a good time. The excursions were well organized but could not get the excursions that I wanted to see, but that was ok.
The ship was lovely, and the room was very comfortable and well thought-out in terms of limited space. Staff was very, very pleasant and helpful.
Trip was just beautiful. Meals were excellent Viking Staff and experience were top notch. They could not do enough for you to make your experience more memorable. The river cruise thru the Waknau Valley were truly the most beautiful I have ever seen on a cruise. Would suggest that you tempor you off ship excursions as there are a lot to choose from and you are constantly on the go if you don't . Most excursions start early in the AM so do not expect to sleep in... Viking's assistance on transfers were well above expectations with on site representatives at both entry and exit airports. Could not have done it with out them.

Viking met and exceeded our expectation. It was our very first river cruise and we're simply blown away with the overall experience. The room was always kept neat and tidy. The food and wait staff were outstanding. All the included excursions were great. Couldn't have ask for a better trip. Another check mark off our bucket lists!
