Viking announced its 2019 Ocean & River Voyages, which provide guests the unique to explore Europe's rivers on a Viking Longship before setting sail to Scandinavia on one of Viking's ocean ships. Debuting in May 2019, the Grand European & Viking Fjords itinerary will sail Budapest to Bergen, combining Viking's popular 15-day Grand European Tour cruise on the Rhine and Danube Rivers between Budapest and Amsterdam – with the 8-day Viking Shores & Fjords ocean itinerary, which sails the North Sea, between Amsterdam and Bergen. Viking will also offer additional departures in 2019 of the 15-day Rhine & Viking Shores & Fjords combination itinerary, which debuts in June 2018 and will sail between Basel and Bergen.
"Our guests are experienced travelers who appreciate immersive cultural experiences, while also exploring the world in comfort," said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking. "Only Viking can provide a destination-focused voyage that marries the river and sea into a single, unified journey. With one flight, our guests can experience both of our award-winning cruise products, making it even easier for them to explore the world."

Starting in June 2018, Viking's first two combination cruises will set sail, allowing guests to explore even more throughout Europe with rich cultural experiences in each port of call. With the new Ocean & River Voyages, guests can experience sailing through the heart of Europe on a Viking Longship, as well as sailing the high seas on one of Viking's 930-guest ocean ships.
