Viking Torgil

About Viking Torgil

Sailing between Lisbon and Porto for 10 days, a trip on one of Viking River Cruises Portugal itineraries includes eight guided tours, visiting five UNESCO World Heritage Sites as well as Salamanca in Spain. You can add days on to your cruise in order to enjoy more of the area by starting your holiday in Madrid, or going further along the Portuguese coast to the northern Spanish city of Santiago. This added flexibility means that you choose the most convenient and economical dates and flight times for you.

As the world’s oldest demarcated wine region, a cruise through the Duoro River Valley onboard Viking Torgil provides opportunities to sample local port and learn about wine-making. You can also soak up the Portuguese culture at a flamenco show and listen to traditional fado singing.

Viking Torgil is designed with floor to ceiling windows in public spaces, as well as windows in every stateroom and balconies in many. The Portuguese-inspired décor with tiles and muted colours is carried through the restaurant and upper deck Observation Lounge, with a bar that leads out on to the open-air Aquavit Terrace.

Along with Viking Hemming, Torgil is one of two Viking River Cruise ships to have a swimming pool. It’s situated on the sundeck beside a shaded seating area, a putting green and organic herb garden. Viking’s All Inclusive cruising means that most meals are included, serving regional specialities for onboard breakfast, dinner and lunch, as well as complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks.

All staterooms are outside with wide-angle river views, have a 40″ flat-panel TV with infotainment system, good-sized wardrobes and premium bathroom products. Rooms range from Standard Staterooms with a half-height picture window to Veranda Staterooms and French Balcony Staterooms – complete with a sliding glass door. But for the most space, opt for a two-room Veranda Suite that has a private veranda and separate living room.

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

Located on the Middle Deck, the Restaurant is where all meals are served during the cruise.

As with your stateroom, the public areas are designed to make the most of the splendid views. Whether from the sun deck, the Panorama 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.

With floor-to-ceiling glass windows and large, comfortable chairs, the Observation Lounge is the heart of the ship - a gathering place for guests to view the scenery, have a drink, take in lectures and lore, and enjoy local music.
