Enjoy breakfast on the deck with a freshly baked croissant and a coffee or try something from the buffet. Enjoy a casual lunch, dinner Al Fresco, maybe even join your friends in the restaurant with open seating. You can choose to sit where you want, with who and when you want.


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.


The Viking Hermod is designed to make the most of the fantastic views on your river cruise. Whether from the sun deck, the lounge or the restaurant with its panoramic windows, uninterrupted sightseeing is provided from the moment the sun rises, until the sun sets on another beautiful day.
