Viking Torgil

5.0/5 |
Viking Torgil was custom built to sail Portugal's Douro River, with state-of-the-art engineering, a patented corridor design* and deluxe accommodations featuring streamlined Scandinavian interiors.

Small and intimate, the ship carries just 106 guests. Similar to the Viking Longships?, you can choose from a variety of stateroom classes, all with sweeping river views. Veranda Suites offer two full rooms with a private veranda off the living room and a French balcony in the bedroom, and hotel-style beds, spacious closets and amenities like 40-inch flat-panel TVs. These ships feature public spaces bathed in light, with imaginative and innovative features such as the Observation Lounge with floor-to-ceiling glass doors and the indoor-outdoor Aquavit Terrace?, located at the bow of the ship and perfect for al fresco dining. Sleek and sophisticated, the elegantly understated interiors offer a serene environment in which to unwind and take in the spectacular scenery.

*Corridor configuration designs U.S. Patent # 1832106-0001 to 1832106-0011.

  • Internet Access - For guests' convenience, all Viking ships have Internet access, as follows:

    • Ships in Europe, Russia and Ukraine - There is free Wi-Fi available, so you can bring your laptop and get online at any time. Alternatively, each ship has a few computers for guest use; there are desktop machines in Russia and laptops in Europe that guests may use free of charge. Guests who bring laptops to Russia may wish to bring a LAN cable for use in their stateroom; this may work a bit better than the wireless LAN in rural areas along the river.
    • Ships in China - There is an Internet caf? with desktop stations for guest use, free of charge. There is no onboard wireless network in China or Southeast Asia, so you will not be able to get Internet service on your personal computer while on the ship, although you may be able to do so during hotel stays.
    • Please note - Shipboard service may be unreliable during certain parts of the journey. The Internet connection functions via cellular service or satellite downlink, and there may be times when reception is not possible and/or when the connection is quite slow. For this reason, it is recommended that guests use the internet connection checking and sending email only, and not for downloading large files or watching video online.

  • Pregnancy Policy - Viking reserves the right not to accept passengers who are in an advanced state of pregnancy either upon commencement of or at any time during the river or ocean cruise.

Every meal has vegetarian options on the menu, and chefs are able to prepare low-salt or gluten-free cuisine. Guests requiring special diets, such as diabetic or low-cholesterol meals, must alert Viking Cruises one month prior to departure and inform the Maitre d? when on board, and the chefs will make make reasonable efforts to fulfill these requests.

  • Wheelchair Access & Special Needs - Guests must report any disability requiring special attention while on their Viking Cruises itinerary to Viking at the time the reservation is made. All vessels and motorcoaches are equipped to European standards. Most transportation services, including the vessels and motorcoaches, are not equipped with elevators or wheelchair ramps.

A qualified and physically able companion must accompany travelers who need such assistance and must assume full responsibility for their well being. The guest assumes the full risk of use and of any prohibitions imposed by vendors. Motorized scooters are not typically suitable on international cruises and cannot be accommodated.

THE Douro valley cruise IN PORTUGAL

| THE DOURO VALLEY PORTUGAL
THIS IS OUR 4TH CRUISE WITH VIKING ALL RESERVED THROUGH YOUR AGENCY we are very fond of ViKING and your agency and we intend to continue with both and recommend YOU to friend and families. However we had a somewhat bad experience on the first day of the cruise when we chose for dinner veal which contained small pieces of porc which were not mentioned in the Menu.we ate for the first time of our life ham which have shocked us as these did not figure as an ingredient in the menu. we precisely stated at the entrance of the cruise that we are prohibited from eating porc products.This incident saddened us

Explore the Douro River

Discover one of Europe's most pristine destinations, Portugal. Explore Lisbon, then see unspoiled vistas, stop at ports of call largely unchanged for centuries and sample the local cuisine and port wines on your Douro River cruise.

 

Norse Heritage

An alleged son of the Danish King Harald, Torgil sailed westward to Bretland (Wales and western England), Portugal and Ireland. According to Viking history, he and his brother Frode were the first Northmen to conquer Dublin. By establishing strongholds and trading centers all around the island, he helped transform Ireland into a vibrant mercantile economy with trade contacts all over Europe. While it is said that someone poisoned Frode, Torgil survived to be king of Dublin for many years, until he was ultimately deceived by the Irish and slain in battle.
