Viking River Cruises

Viking Eistla

The Viking Eistla was built in 2014 and carries 190 passengers on the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers through Holland, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary and Austria, departing from Amsterdam, Budapest, Nuremberg and Passau. Like other Viking long-ships, the Eistla was designed as a “green ship” with solar panels, energy efficient engines and organic herb gardens.


Accommodation aboard the Viking Eistla includes French Balcony Staterooms-Cat C & D, Standard Staterooms-Cat E & F, Veranda Staterooms-Cat A & B and Veranda Suites-Cat AA.


Viking's trained chefs are passionate about food and committed to providing a complete culinary experience. The ships’ dining areas are friendly and a perfect place to enjoy delightful dishes. Menu selections include regional dishes and contemporary cuisine to offer a variety of flavours designed to suit any palate. Start the day with a croissant and cappuccino on the sun deck or a delicious buffet breakfast. Have an Al Fresco lunch or dinner or join friends and dine in the ship’s restaurant.


Hands-on demonstrations, cooking classes, traditional dance performances, and local tastings. These in-depth experiences are included as an essential part of discovering more about the places through which you cruise, and each activity is planned specifically to illuminate each itinerary.

Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. We offer a series of onboard multimedia talks to shed light on the history and culture of the places you visit. Topics may include the Dutch Masters or French impressionists, castles along the Rhine Valley, the formation of the European Union, the life and works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the wine and cuisine of southern France, and key words and phrases in the local language wherever you are traveling. These presentations provide a context for your own observations, enhancing your travel experience.


Whether from the sun deck, the Lounge or the restaurant, a river cruise provides uninterrupted sightseeing, from the time the morning mist rises from the water to when the setting sun announces the end to another remarkable day.
