Viking River Cruise line is adding another ship and more departures on the Nile. The new ship is named “Viking Hathor” which sails in 2024. Viking has sold out all 2023 voyages on the Nile, and demand remains strong, and 2024-2025 already has sold out sailings.

“Owned and operated by Viking, Viking Hathor is a brand new sister ship to Viking Osiris and Viking Aton, the most upscale ships in Egypt. Specifically built to navigate the Nile, she is a state-of-the-art vessel—designed in the clean, elegant Scandinavian aesthetic for which Viking is known. Accommodating just 82 guests, she offers the ultimate in comfort.”
