This month, Viking debuted a new WWII itinerary to commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day. The line is also offering Treasures of the Danube, a 10-day itinerary with overnights in Budapest, Vienna and Passau, this coming winter and Rhine & Main Explorer, an 11-day voyage through southern Germany, Switzerland and France, starting next spring. New Mississippi River itineraries, ranging from 8 to 22 days in length, are also available this year and next.

Viking's thoughtfully designed itineraries explore local culture, cuisine and traditions through engaging experiences on and off the ship. Many port calls include tours of UNESCO World Heritage sites, for example, and ships dock right in the heart of town, putting you within walking distance of shops, restaurants and attractions. On board, you can enjoy lectures, cooking demonstrations, wine tastings and entertaining performances.

With Viking Inclusive Value, everything you need is covered in the upfront price: your stateroom, one shore excursion in every port of call, unlimited Wi-Fi, all onboard meals with complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks at lunch and dinner, and all port taxes and fees. Specialty coffees, teas and bottled water are available at all times on the ship. Meals served in onboard restaurants highlight regional cuisine and use locally sourced ingredients.

Viking Longships feature state-of-the-art engineering and understated sophistication, with public areas that embrace the outdoors and are filled with natural light. The Aquavit Terrace at the bow of each 190-guest vessel serves as a viewing area and a spot for alfresco dining. All staterooms have river views, and half of them boast full-size verandas. Among the accommodation options are 445-square-foot Explorer Suites with two full rooms and private wraparound verandas.
