travel42 Cruise Ship Review: Viking River Cruises Viking Prestige

Viking Prestige travel42 Professional Ship Review

Viking Prestige launched in Europe in 2011, which makes it one of the older ships in Viking's fleet.

The ship was designed by Norwegian maritime architects Yran & Storbraaten and was built in Rostock, Germany.

It is a sister to the Viking Legend, which launched in fall 2009. Viking Prestige features some of the same green features, such as a hybrid propulsion system, which makes it nearly free of vibrations. It also features French balconies on the top two decks.
