Viking Emerald


Ship Description

Built in 2004, the Viking Emerald is a six deck all balcony river ship on the Yangtze. With its all-inclusive cruise program that includes both airfare and shore excursions, a river cruise on the Viking Emerald not only provides a comprehensive cultural and historical experience but is also an exceptionally good value. Explore the historic sites and cultural differences with a trip along the Yangtze river from Wuhan to Chongqing through the three Gorges and explore the dam. Visit the lesser three gorges by small boat. Or perhaps Chongqing to Nanjing. Explore Xian, Bejing and Shanghai or Tibet on land excursions.


Cruise the Yangtze River on Viking Emerald, a beautiful, state-of-the-art river cruise vessel built for the 2011 sailing season. Accommodating 256 guests with full balconies, hotel-style beds in every spacious suite and stateroom and an outstanding crew, Viking Emerald is one of the most sophisticated river ships in the world. The ship's hotel operations are 100% managed by Viking River Cruises Swiss-trained management team, employing the best and most knowledgeable English-speaking staff. Enjoy one of the Viking Emerald's roomy 269-square-foot staterooms, or treat yourself to a junior suite or suite at 301 square feet and 327 square feet respectively. Or perhaps you would enjoy one of the two 840-square-foot presidential suites, with king-sized bed, separate sitting room and private wraparound balcony. The choice is yours!
