Hygiene and Safety Protocols

Pre-Departure Test
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.

Purified Air
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.

Medical Services
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.

Sanitization
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.

Viking was outstanding in terms of customer service, quality of the food, the excursions that were included as well as the optional excursions. The ship is laid out well, our room was amazing and it was very relaxing. Viking was extremely organized and communicated the events of the day and next day. We had a great time and would sail with them again.

AD
Anita

Pricy with limited entertainment but food and excursions were outstanding.

JH
James

Our experience with affordable tours and with Viking itself was a very pleasurable experience. Everything we were promised was delivered, the cruise was exceptional and the Viking crew and staff took care of our every need. I would not hesitate to take another cruise with them and use Affordable Tours as our agent, in fact we are looking at other cruise destinations that we are interested in booking. The entire experience was exceptional.

LS
Louis

We've been on two Viking river cruises so far. Stayed in an Explorer Suite both times. Viking has figured out how to pack maximum enjoyment considering customer preferences for how much guided tour time and on your own time you desire at each stop. They are highly organized and highly trained. Their staff are very friendly and it rubs off on their customers. And the food is excellent. We'll book again.

SH
Sally

Although Viking provided high quality experience in every way, having to do part of our journey by bus rather than boat was disappointing. Having to pack and unpack in order to change boats was a bit frustrating. I realize that Viking cannot control the water depth of the rivers, but because of this experience I am not anxious to make another river cruise. I may be more inclined to choose an ocean cruise where water depth is most likely not a problem.
