Viking Tialfi

About Viking Tialfi

When you’re ready to run away from it all, a cruise onboard a Viking cruise ship named for the Norse champion runner of myth is an appropriate way to go. There’s more to Viking Tialfi from Viking River Cruises than a name though, as the cruise ship features a host of ways to make a trip along the River Rhine truly special.

Viking Tialfi follows an itinerary that lets it weave through Europe at a steady pace, from Amsterdam to Basel. The verdant fields and classic towns you’ll encounter on the way seem almost close enough to touch thanks to Viking Tialfi’s smart design, where every element, from the panoramas of the Sun Deck to the sweeping vistas promised by the Aquavit Terrace, is designed to showcase spectacular views.

Viking River Cruises’ commitment to fantastic cuisine is at full strength in Viking Tialfi’s restaurant, located at the heart of the cruise ship. Floor to ceiling windows ensure that those same splendid views are a constant dinner guest, while fast and friendly staff keep your plate full.

With internet access and a library tucked close to the lounge bar at Viking Tialfi’s centre, entertainment is always close at hand. That said, when the time comes to retire for the evening, your accommodation options are both varied and welcoming. The affordable Veranda Stateroom, for example, offers 205 square feet of comfort, with a big screen TV and private bathroom, together with your personal terrace from which to enjoy the view.

For the true traveller with distinction, the Explorer Suite is the definitive Viking Tialfi experience. Two big-screen TVs and access to the Silver Spirits beverage package round off a host of benefits that make the Explorer Suite the cream of the crop – and we have plenty of Viking River Cruise discounts to make your cruise even sweeter.

It’s been said that the best way to know a culture is through its food and wine. Both engage your senses and provide a window into the traditions and essence of a land. Viking's trained chefs are passionate about food and committed to providing a complete culinary experience. The ships’ dining areas are hospitable and inviting; the service is friendly, attentive and personalised. Menu selections include regional dishes and contemporary cuisine to offer a variety of flavours designed to suit any palate. You have choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not just in food selection, but also in where and how you enjoy them. Greet the morning with a croissant and cappuccino on deck, or begin your day with a sumptuous buffet breakfast. Have a casual lunch or dinner al fresco, or join friends in the restaurant. Open seating allows you to mingle with the same guests every evening or meet someone new each day.


The Restaurant

Gaze at breathtaking scenery through the Restaurant’s panoramic windows as you dine on regional specialties and contemporary cuisine. The atmosphere is casual yet elegant, with high-quality table linens, china, cutlery and glassware at every meal.

As with your stateroom, the public areas are designed to make the most of the splendid views. Whether from the sun deck, the Lounge or the restaurant, a river cruise provides uninterrupted sightseeing, from the time the morning mist rises from the water to when the setting sun announces the end to another remarkable day.


The Bar

Located in the Lounge, the bar is lively and inviting - a gathering place for guests to view the scenery, have a drink and catch up on the day with friends.

Library

Located in the heart of the Upper deck adjacent to the Aquavit Terrace, the library has comfortable seating and excellent reading light. Their ships’ libraries carry approximately 80 books, in various languages but mostly English, and several games such as chess, backgammon and playing cards. Pick up a magazine or board game and enjoy it in the lounge just steps away.

Onboard Boutique

Forget to bring something? Looking for a magazine or some gift items? The onboard boutique on the main deck has everything you need to make your voyage comfortable and convenient.

The Lounge

The lounge has a baby grand piano, where a pianist plays classical and modern melodies during cocktail hour and sometimes at lunch. The music drifts to and through the Aquavit Terrace -a nice accompaniment on warm, sunny days.

The cruise director hosts a variety of informal evening entertainment in the lounge; from pub trivia nights to the cruise slideshow cum sales pitch, it's all done in a spirit of fun and inclusivity. The lounge is also equipped with large pull-down movie screens and surround-sound for movie nights, and regional performers occasionally come onboard to provide additional entertainment. 

Let the staff treat you to personalised service, fine wines and delicious, regional cuisine. Engage in immersive cultural activities. Take advantage of the wide array of amenities, from the onboard Concierge to ship-wide Wi-Fi and 24-hour beverage bar.


Sun Deck

Enjoy the sunshine up on the Sun deck with its 360-degree views and shaded sitting area. Guests are also provided with a small putting green and a walking track, for those looking to keep fit.

Hands-on demonstrations, cooking classes, traditional dance performances, and local tastings. These in-depth experiences are included as an essential part of discovering more about the places through which you cruise, and each activity is planned specifically to illuminate each itinerary.

Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. We offer a series of onboard multimedia talks to shed light on the history and culture of the places you visit. Topics may include the Dutch Masters or French impressionists, castles along the Rhine Valley, the formation of the European Union, the life and works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the wine and cuisine of southern France, and key words and phrases in the local language wherever you are traveling. These presentations provide a context for your own observations, enhancing your travel experience.


Daily Shore Excursions

Most passengers participate in the daily shore excursions included in the cruise fares, and a fair number also opt for the fee-added alternative trips provided by the line. Shore excursions are typically of the basic bus or walking tour variety, but paid-for excursions also include events like wine-tastings and off-ship dinner outings. Prices for these range between 30 and 60 Euros per person. QuietVox headsets with earphones (found in each cabin) are provided for every tour so that everyone can hear what local guides are saying.
