Introducing Viking Ra

Viking River Cruises has announced new details of its latest ship, the Viking Ra, which will sail the Nile River starting March 2018.

Recently acquired the vessel has been stripped down to the steel to undergo a complete renovation.

Viking said Viking Ra’s interiors are being designed by the same team of architects and engineers that developed its popular Longships in Europe. The design will blend the clean Scandinavian design for which Viking is known with local influences that include traditional geometric Arabic patterns and terrazzo floors.

Tailored to accommodate just 48 guests, Viking Ra will sail on a new Egypt cruisetour, ‘Pharaohs & Pyramids’ next March.

The development by Viking, North America’s biggest river cruise operator is the latest sign that river cruising on the Nile could be poised for a comeback, after years of security fears.
