Discover the hidden beauty of the Rhine and the picturesque villages that line its banks aboard Viking Cruises' longship, the Viking Eir. This recent addition to the Viking fleet boasts a variety of staterooms, an array of elegant amenities and service that is second to none.

From the moment you step aboard this boutique ship, the atmosphere is welcoming, the environment filled with light and the views abound. Enjoy a meal al fresco on the innovative Aquavit Terrace in the ship's bow, with indoor/outdoor area and retractable sliding glass doors.

When it comes to accommodation, each stateroom features outside views, while suites boast separate sitting and sleeping areas with a veranda and French balcony. Regardless of your choice, the atmosphere is casually elegant with refrigerators, safes, climate control and flat screen televisions just some of the standard extras.
