Owned and operated by Viking, Viking Ra is the newest, most upscale ship in Egypt. Specifically built to navigate the Nile, in 2017 she was completely stripped down to her steel frame and reconfigured to be a modern, elegant vessel. Fully reimagined to international standards and Viking design specifications, she is now an all-suite, state-of-the art ship with the clean, elegant Scandinavian design for which Viking is known blended with local influences like traditional geometric Arabic patterns. Accommodating just 52 guests, she offers the ultimate in comfort.
Docking Advantage - Viking's exclusive rights to premier docking locations means you can step into the heart of the city for your included excursion in every port.
Viking Ra features a restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows for panoramic views, located on the upper deck.
On board is also The Lounge and bar with floor-to-ceiling windows, located on the pool deck.
Health & Fitness
While your ship does not have any fitness equipment, feel free to walk the walking track on the Sun Deck for your daily exercise, or take part in our shore excursions and walking tours. In many major cities, you may access nearby First-Class hotels and use their Fitness Center and Spa facilities as part of Viking's relationship with those hotels. See your onboard Concierge for details.
Kid & Teens
Due to the nature of Viking cruises, they do not maintain specific facilities or services for children aboard cruise vessels. In the circumstances you and all members of your party must be aged 18 or over on or before the day you are scheduled to embark on the cruise vessel.
Useful to Know
Tipping on board is at your discretion; we suggest a gratuity of €2 (euro) per guest, per day for your Program Director and €12 per guest, per day for ship's staff, which is distributed among them. Any additional tipping is at your discretion; should you choose to tip your local guides and drivers, we recommend tipping at the end of each tour in cash. We suggest €2 per person, per day for local guides, and €1 per person, per day for drivers. Most restaurants include service in their prices, and it's customary to round up generously for good service.
