Viking Prestige, the newest addition to the Viking River Cruises fleet, has been recently christened in Amsterdam, and will begin its inaugural voyage tomorrow, July 2, 2011, with a 15-day Grand European Tour. The ship will then begin its regular service on the ever-popular 8-day Romantic Danube itinerary which travels Budapest to Nuremberg (or reverse), visiting ports in Hungary, Austria and Germany.
As usual, the ship will feature Viking’s signature décor with sophisticated, understated elegance. Viking passengers have all reasons to love this new addition: it is Viking’s second “green” river cruise vessel, that offers a smoother, quieter ride than other ships and represents the environmentally responsible future of Viking’s European vessels.
To celebrate the launch of Viking Prestige, Viking is currently offering 2-FOR-1 cruise fares with complimentary wine, plus savings on all-inclusive round-trip international airfare. These special offers for both the 2011 and 2012 sailing seasons are valid through July 31, 2011 and can be booked at vikingrivercruises.com.
