Viking offers a range of luxury river cruise options throughout Europe, Russia, Ukraine, China, Southeast Asia and Egypt. Here are a few we'd recommend adding to your bucket list:
Tulips & Windmills - Springtime splendor: truly the definition of Holland in the spring. This 10-day river cruise through the Low Countries (and the cities of Amsterdam and Antwerp) showcases a rainbow of colors, ingenious windmills and the massive Delta Works project. Explore some of Belgium's most beautifully preserved medieval cities.
Waterways of the Czars - It's hard to think of Russia and not think of Moscow and St. Petersburg: two great cities that have both shaped and defined much of this intriguing land for the rest of the world. This 13-day itinerary includes multiple days in both cities to see such landmarks as Moscow's Kremlin and Red Square, and St. Petersburg's Hermitage and Catherine's Palace. But perhaps one of the highlights for some travelers may be exploring the quant Golden Ring towns that only a river cruise can provide.
Roof of the World - A 16-day adventure that provides guests with a look at the many faces of China. See the imperial treasures of Beijing, including the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace. Meet several thousand Terra Cotta Warriors in Xian. Explore the ancient and contemporary sides to Shanghai. And, of course, enjoy a 6-day Yangtze River cruise. Experience Lhasa on the Tibetan plateau, set high in the Himalaya on "the roof of the world."
Germany's Vineyards & Vistas - Enjoy the picturesque landscape on this luxury river cruise as you spend eight days on the Moselle, Rhine and Main Rivers. The hillsides will leave you in awe, the German wines and beers will introduce you to new flavors and the medieval towns and castles will have you living in another time. Travel through Nuremberg, Bamburg, Wurzburg, Heidelberg, Rudesheim, Trier and more.
