The DRTV Centre's new TV commercial for Viking River Cruises highlights a number of fabulous European destinations including Cologne, Vienna, Amsterdam and Budapest. A fantastic benefit of a Viking holidays is that your cruise ship docks in or near the heart of each city - so passengers simply step ashore to see all the local sights.

A much praised feature is the food on board – and there’s complimentary wine with lunch and dinner. Guests often comment too about how friendly Viking Cruises are, with many making lifelong friends with their fellow travellers.

The new TV campaign features a special October offer of savings up to £1000 per person, meaning that cruises are available from only £1,095 per person.

Viking River Cruises operates the world’s largest and leading fleet of deluxe vessels built specifically for river travel. With its fleet plying the waterways of Europe, Russia, Ukraine and China, Viking has welcomed more than half a million people on magical, enlightening journeys through these exciting places.

Viking ships are Scandinavian in design, with open, airy interiors by famed Norwegian maritime architects Yran & Storbraaten.
