"TV and online video are perfect media for travel and tourism clients"

Ad agency The DRTV Centre has created Viking River Cruises’ latest initiative in a series of website videos. Called “Your First Viking River Cruise” the video has been tailor-made to appeal to travellers who have never before tried river cruising. It explains and shows what life is like on board a Viking Longship, in the public areas like the restaurant and library and in the state rooms. It describes everything that is included in the price; and of course it shows the destinations, from glorious countryside to fascinating and historic cities.

The video will be hosted on Viking River Cruises YouTube Channel and embedded within a dedicated “Why River Cruise?” page on the company’s website.

The DRTV Centre’s David Pearson commented: “TV and online video are perfect media for travel and tourism clients as we’re able to show great destinations and, in Viking’s case, a truly fabulous on-board experience. River cruising is the fastest growing segment of the travel market, and Viking is now the world’s leading river cruise company. This latest video will introduce river cruising to a fresh audience”

Wendy Atkin-Smith, Managing Director of Viking River Cruises said, "Video content is vital in showcasing our fantastic product to both existing and potential customers. The new “First Viking River Cruise” video will help in educating those who are new to river cruising and to Viking. It provides the perfect outlet for us to demonstrate everything we have to offer."

Viking has also worked with The DRTV Centre to create their recent and current 60 second and 30 second TV commercials.
