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 is an amazing operator will definitely travel with them again.

Only exception was with a pre-sail excursion. We Booked thru Viking a tour in Amsterdam called "Taste of Amsterdam". This tour ended up going over the exact tour we had done that morning, a provided walking tour of Amsterdam. The tour guide did the best she could, but she could see how frustrated all six were that booked it. Viking had always set a standard much higher than what was provided on this tour. Other than this total disappointment, Viking met or exceeded my expectations!!

Linh made everything SO easy! She was able to book us on the same Viking river (Rhine) cruise as our friends and we all had a terrific time! We had a slight scare when we learned that our passports had to be valid for 6 months after the cruise, but Linh reassured us that we had ample time to renew and showed us how. Air flights were smooth (Delta lost one bag in Paris on the return, but delivered it to our house in Dallas the next evening! Whew!) The Amsterdam hotel for the add-on days was quite nice. This was our first Viking cruise and we were impressed by the level of service, the excursions, and the food/drinks! Thank you, Linh!

Middle Rhine River water levels were not navigable, but Viking instead took us on a day boat to tour that part of the river which was great. Also made transfer to a different ship easy and we also received an awesome lunch at a Heidelberg beer hall in the old town.Viking staff, most notably room stewards , waiters, bar tenders and cooks who made morning omlets were exceptional, warm, friendly and immensely helpful. Viking reps. On 2 day extension not so much. Their response to most iquiries was see the hotel concierge. However, transfer to Amsterdam airport was flawless.
