Unlike other river cruise lines, Viking River Cruises provides this money-back guarantee:
"We hope you love your cruise from the very beginning; however, should you be dissatisfied with our service upon first check-in (hotel or aboard ship) including food, personnel or shore excursions — just notify us within 24 hours of the start of your cruise (if your first check-in is aboard ship, notify your Program Director; at a hotel, contact your Viking Host). We then have 24 hours to correct the situation, and in the unlikely event a solution isn’t possible, you can then depart as soon as possible and we’ll refund 100% of your cruise price. We can assist with any departure reservations, but your return trip/alternate travel plan costs are your sole responsibility. This Service Guarantee cannot be activated or applied due to Acts of God, Strike or Other as indicated in the Terms and Conditions."

If you want a room to yourself, then when you book a single supplement will apply. You need to choose the option that matches the category letter of the stateroom you want.
If you want to room with another single, please mention their name or that you will have someone booking later.
If you want us to watch for another single to room with, make your deposit but we cannot hold a room yet or Viking will charge a cancellation fee. We will instead hold your funds and make a full refund if we cannot find you a roommate before March (when the balance is due) or sooner if you don't to wait that long.
Please note that the above 3 possibilities are to be chosen under the booking question "Occupancy" so we know what you intend. Feel free to call us if you have questions.
It's important to book this Rhine cruise earlier than most tours and cruises for two reasons:
1. The riverboat only has 95 staterooms and so a tiny fraction of a typical ocean cruise holding 3000-6000 people, and.. Some categories have just 2-5 staterooms before selling out.
2. Because we apply all current special offers from Viking River Cruises: "Two For One", Reduced Air Fare etc. These discount offers from Viking typically expire or discount reduced at the end of each month. This causes urgency that could save you hundreds of dollars if you act now.
Following are discounts for part(s) of our package that you do not want:
• If you do not want the included insurance, then when booking apply the following discount code NO-INSURANCE and your price will be reduced by $309 per person.
• If you do not want the included air fare from Chicago to Amsterdam & returning from Basel (nor the transfers from airport-riverboat-airport), then when booking apply the following discount code CRUISE-ONLY and your price will be reduced by $599 per person.
• If you want neither insurance nor air fare/transfers, when booking apply the following discount code NO-AIR-INSUR and your price will be reduced by $906 per person.
Our group rate includes round trip, economy class air fare and transfers at a special promotion rate that is subject to change each month.
If you want to fly in the Business Class section, Viking River offers the following option depending on the category of Stateroom or Suite you have chosen. When adding these amounts to our group price, it includes the insurance to cover this upgrade.
Following rates are per person & vary by category:
• Business Class Air Upgrade - Stateroom categories A-F +$3215
• Business Class Air Upgrade-Suite categories AA or ES +$2573
If you want this, click the option that matches the category you have chosen.
Note: if you were to buy business class air fare from the airline directly typically the round trip price range is about $4400-7000/person. Viking River gives you great savings and includes transportation from the airport to riverboat, round trip, also.
As of July 5, our cruise riverboat is nearly sold out. Here are the remaining number of staterooms in each category:
Your booking can only be made once we receive your deposit. If it is not available when we call Viking River, we will offer you alternatives. If none are acceptable, we will make a full refund.
