Welcome to the world of Riverboat Cruising  where you can travel back to a time when when ships were small and service was grand!  When, "How are You?" was a sincere question. A time when people ate well and often. When courtesy was actually common.  Welcome to the world of Riverboat Cruising.

So, if you want to see America, Europe or some other part of the world up close and personal one of our Riverboat cruises may be just your ticket. Check out our offerings from: 

In 2003 the American West Steamboat Company continued a rich tradition with the launching of their newest sternwheeler, the Empress of the North.  This 360-foot-long, 235 passenger ship offers some of the most exciting itineraries in the great land of Alaska.  In fact, for the first time in over 100 years you can take a breathtaking Inside Passage on a paddlewheeler and discover the out-of-the way treasures that the early explorers and settlers of this region experienced. 

These are all inclusive cruises on which you will not find any "hidden" charges or surprises. The prices include excursions, fine dining, live enetertainment and even airport transfers.  Even the extras are included, like soft drinks, fresh baked cookies and appetizers during the pre-coctail hour.  American West Steamboat Company has been named to  the prestigious "Gold List" by Conde Nast.

A river cruise with Viking River Cruises is the best way to see Europe, Russia or China up close and in depth. Explore the best destinations in the world from an intimate perspective, spending your time being there, not getting there.

Unlike a bus tour where you spend more time on the bus than actually seeing the country, Viking River Cruises offers you fine food, great service and scenic cruising along some of the world’s great rivers.

Viking River Cruises visits at least one port a day on virtually every itinerary and you can explore small villages off the beaten path that are inaccessible via an ocean cruise. Docking in the heart of town, you'll have more time to see the cities, not just travel to the cities. You'll experience ever-changing riverside scenery as well as local nightlife when your ship overnights in port.
