If you go on a Viking River Cruise in Europe you are going to be on one of their Longships. All are the same size, layout and design. On a few rivers in Europe, like the Douro, there is a scaled down version but on the main rivers you will be on one of these ships. I talk and show you through 4 things you need to know about, like what they are and what is consistent, the range of cabin options, the facilities and (importantly) what they do not have that some other river cruise ships have. Also watch my video about Viking Cruise Lines and key watch-outs and must-knows before cruising with them:

Note: I did travel as a guest of Viking River Cruises before making this video. They covered my fare in a 7-night Danube cruise on the Viking Vilhjalm. The fare for the standard cabin would have been £2,645 (US $3,000) including flights and transfers from London Heathrow to and from the ship.
