Viking River Cruises - The Experience, The Awe...

Hi there! I'm Emily Hembree, your go-to expert for unforgettable river cruises with Viking. My love for travel and deep appreciation for cultural experiences make Viking River Cruises the perfect way to explore the world. Let me share why Viking might just be the next highlight of your travel adventures.


Sailing in Elegance: On a Viking River Cruise, it's all about elegance and comfort. Picture yourself on one of their sleek, Scandinavian-designed longships, where every stateroom offers stunning river views. The spacious rooms and modern amenities ensure you have a relaxing haven to return to after a day of exploring.


A Taste of Excellence: Foodies, rejoice! Viking delivers culinary experiences like no other. Imagine indulging in locally-inspired meals crafted by talented chefs, from fresh pastries at breakfast to gourmet dinners that celebrate the cuisine of the regions we visit. Dining on Viking isn't just a meal; it's a delicious journey. 


Immersive Experiences: Viking’s shore excursions are a true highlight. Think guided tours through ancient castles, hands-on workshops with local artisans, and intimate wine tastings in world-renowned vineyards. These experiences go beyond typical sightseeing, giving you a deep dive into the heart of each destination.


Onboard Enrichment: The enriching activities don't end when you return to the ship. Viking offers fascinating lectures by local historians, captivating music performances, and even fun cooking classes. These onboard experiences are designed to complement your onshore adventures, making each day enriching and unique.


Top-Notch Service: From the moment you step aboard, Viking’s crew makes you feel like royalty. Their attention to detail and personalized service ensures that every aspect of your cruise is seamless and enjoyable so that you can focus on making memories.


Must-Try Experiences: Stroll through the fairy-tale-like streets of a medieval European town. Attend a private classical concert in a historic castle along the Rhine. Taste exquisite wines in Burgundy’s picturesque vineyards. Explore the rich history and stunning architecture of Budapest on a guided tour.


My Expertise: As a certified Viking River Cruises specialist, I’m always up-to-date with the latest itineraries and exclusive offers. My goal is to design a trip that’s perfectly tailored to your preferences, ensuring an absolutely memorable river cruise experience.

Spring Break
Emily booked a vacation/spring break trip for my daughter and myself. She was excellent-- very patient and knowledgeable. The trip was somewhat complicated as my daughter and I traveling roundtrip from 2 different cities but Emily handled it well and made the experience of booking travel much better. She had some great suggestions and saved us money booking a flight versus online.

Best Experience!
Emily has been a delight to work with on our destination wedding. She was knowledgeable, efficient and listened to our wants to help us find the right location for our budget. While being professional, Emily was also personable so much so that we enjoyed spending time with her. Emily also went above and beyond to get questions answered, researching our trip and price checking several vendors. We will definitely want to use Emily again for any other travels needs. We have already and will continue to recommend Emily any time we get the opportunity.
