Viking River Cruises

Viking Idun

The Viking Idun was built in 2012 and carries 190 passengers as it cruises along the River Danube in Germany, Hungary, Austria and Slovakia, departing from Passau, Nuremberg, Paris, Budapest and Prague. This state-of-the art long-ship was designed as a “green ship” with solar panels, energy efficient engines and an organic herb garden.


Accommodation on Viking Idun include French Balcony Staterooms-Cat C & D, Standard Staterooms-Cat E & F, Veranda Staterooms-Cat A & B, Veranda Suites-Cat AA and Explorer Suites-Cat ES.


Viking’s trained chefs are committed to providing a culinary experience with a selection of regional dishes and a variety of menus to suit every palate. Start your day with a croissant and cappuccino on the sun deck, or indulge in a buffet breakfast. Enjoy lunch or dinner Al Fresco, or meet friends in the 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.


A river cruise provides uninterrupted sightseeing from first thing in the morning, until the sun sets in the evening. Whether on the sun deck, the lounge or in the restaurant, there is always somewhere to relax with friends and family.
