Built in 1991, refurbished in 2001 and again refurbished for the 2010 season, the Viking Fontane is one of the older river ships in the Viking fleet. With its all-inclusive cruise program that includes both airfare and shore excursions, a river cruise on the Viking Fontane not only provides a comprehensive cultural and historical experience but is also an exceptionally good value. Most members of the ship's crew are from central and eastern Europe. English is the official onboard language, and all crew speak fluent English as do tour guides escorting shore excursions, and all public address announcements are made only in English. The cruise manager is the main contact person onboard the ship and is on hand to respond to individual passenger questions and requests throughout the cruise, and also organizes shore excursions and introduces guest speakers.
The 55 cabins on the Viking Fontane at 120sf, with the exception of Cat AX 180SF, are all similar and only the location on the ship determines the price. The bedding consists hotel style dbl bed or two single in the upper categories and two single beds in the lower. Drawer and closet space is adequate and each stateromm has a washroom with shower.
You will need an electric adapter to plug in a curling iron, electric razor, or camera battery re-charger. The room comes with a hair dryer. There is a television with movies, news, and a live "cruise cam" that allows you to see out the front of the ship. .
