Start planning your remarkable, memorable river cruise journey with Viking River Cruises & AAA Carolinas.

River cruising has become an immensely popular way to see the world and for good reason: it’s the easiest way to explore a destination. Think of a luxury hotel that travels with you - no packing and unpacking day after day. And, because the ship is small and the rivers wind inland, the shoreline scenery and the cities and villages are more accessible. The trip becomes intimate and immersive. You’ll simply walk off the ship into living history.

Viking built the river cruise market, starting 20 years ago by focusing on discerning travelers who wanted a travel experience that offered the ability for personal enrichment and up-close and personal insight into a destination. But, today there are a multitude of river cruise lines, so why Viking?
