Viking Schumann

Viking Fontane (newly refurbished in 2010), along with Viking Schumann, is a small river cruise vessel with a very shallw draft that minimizes the impact of lower water levels, making it an ideal craft for the Elbe River, which is extremely shallow. Fontane is also suited to sail the Main and Moselle Rivers because of its small size. Schumann carries 124 passengers while Fontane carries just 110, making a trip on each of these vessels a truly intimate and personal experience. The sun deck on board offers a stunning panoramic view, and there is also an observation lounge with a bar and a library for you to enjoy. The ship has its own boutique where you can shop for gifts and souvenirs, and there is a free wireless internet service across the whole vessel! Guests can even make use of the laundry service!

Activities on Viking Schumann

In addition to onshore activities, Viking offers a program called "Old World Highlights," which is an opportunity for guests to enjoy immersive learning experiences both on board and ashore. These activities include cooking classes in traditional European cruisines like apple strudel and flammkuchen, not to mention performances of traditional folk music and dance, as well as local food tastings with cheeses, coffees, liqueurs and other local specialties. To pass the time between destinations, guests can also enjoy the Culture Curriculum, which is a series of talks and lectures onboard the ship that will provide you with an extensive background about the regions you are travelling through. You can learn about the Castles along the Rhine, or the formation of the European Union; the life and works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, or Dutch Masters and French impressionist artists. Learn about the wine and cuisine of southern France, or even take a course about key words and phrases from the local languages so you know what to say when you're on shore! Guests will also enjoy the sun deck (which has panoramic, 360-degree views), as well as a shipboard library, free wireless internet on the entire ship, and even an onboard boutique!
