Well, then, you may just want to keep reading…

Twenty years ago, back in 1997, Viking Cruises began operating cruises in Russia with just four river ships. Today, the leaders in Russian river cruising boast a worldwide fleet of 64, which was recently extended to 66 with the addition of two new Longships.

Twenty years on, Viking is making an award-winning success of ocean cruising too. Viking Sky, the third ocean vessel to join the fleet, embarked on her maiden voyage in March 2017, and joins sister ships Viking Star and Viking Sea.


Viking Sun is launching later this year and Viking Spirit joins the fleet in 2018.

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Viking is giving you the chance to win one of two Waterways of the Tsars river cruises, each for two people in AX cabin category departing St. Petersburg 28 September 2017.
