At River & Ocean Cruise Vacations, we present some of the most authentic and
meaningful travel experiences as you travel by river, allowing you to dock
right in the heart of both historic cities and quaint villages. On a river
cruise you’ll gain a unique perspective of a land and its people.
Now, River Cruises don't offer elaborate production shows, don't have a
casino. There's no big promenade shopping mall, no midnight buffet, nor any
waterslides, ice skating rinks or rock climbing walls.
River Cruises do transport you " back in time" to visit the people, places
and events, where Europe, Russia and China's rich history comes alive in
hundred's of historic sites, classical cities and towns. All the while,
enjoying a river cruise ship's modern comfort, cuisine and included onshore
excursions and activities. If you prefer an ocean cruise with elegant,
serene ship ambience, more time in each port and an inclusive experience
with exquisite dining and thoughtfully curated shore excursions, consider a
Viking Ocean Cruise.
