Viking longships will accommodate 190 guests in 95 staterooms, with multiple stateroom categories, like two-room suites with full-sized verandas. Onboard, guests enjoy a restaurant, bar and lounge, library, sun deck and Aquavit Terrace. Environmentally considerate features include solar panels, an organic herb garden and energy-efficient hybrid engines.

“The Middle Rhine is one of our most popular destinations — with constantly changing views of hilltop castles, historic towns and terraced vineyards along the steep valley sides, it is a region that will always be best explored by the river,” said Torstein Hagen, chairman, Viking. “Many of our guests have sailed the Rhine during other seasons, so we are pleased to offer a new option for those who may be interested experiencing Europe during a quieter time of year.”

Departures begin in December and run through early March 2024, starting at $1,999 per person.
