Viking Ra

Owned and operated by Viking, Viking Ra is the newest, most upscale ship in Egypt. Specifically built to navigate the Nile, in 2017 she was completely stripped down to her steel frame and reconfigured to be a modern, elegant vessel. Fully reimagined to international standards and Viking design specifications, she is now an all-suite, state-of-the art ship with the clean, elegant Scandinavian design for which Viking is known blended with local influences like traditional geometric Arabic patterns. Accommodating just 52 guests, she offers the ultimate in comfort.
