Extra Passengers - On most of our classes we indicate that one or two extra passengers can be accommodated (e.g. 4/6). The upper figure is the maximum number of passengers that may travel on that boat. Please note that there is no extra charge for these extra passengers.

Viking Afloat makes every effort to give you lots of choice:

Choice of start days: Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.

Boat Grading Scheme

Choosing Your Boat
As part of our commitment to quality, Viking Afloat helped pilot a scheme set up for the English Tourist Board, to produce a quality grading scheme designed to help you choose the right boat for your needs. Under this scheme all of our boats have been inspected and classified by a Senior Tourist Board Inspector, according to strict criteria.

One to five stars - tell you the range of facilities and equipment you can expect. The more stars the greater the range.
