Yes, Viking is the the only river cruise line you know on the rivers because they are the only one advertising. Yes, they have more boats on the river than any other cruise company. Yes, they offer two-for-one rates in their printed brochure, making their price near the price it should have been initially.  Yes, they are about the cheapest on the rivers; for a reason.

NOTE:

Viking is the 'Holiday Inn' chain of river cruising!

You deserve cruise lines that don't use price trickery, that are priced fairly from the time they print their brochure.  Why book with a company who demands full payment a year and half in advance of departure; even nine or six months in advance so you pay for their 'new builds' and chain of boats?  

I assure you, better quality upscale cruise lines offer far more value. Higher quality and reputable cruises requesting a small refundable deposit within a week after reservation and final payment three months prior to departure; pretty simple.  These boutique cruise lines (see below) offer higher quality cuisine, experiential unique touring, personally selected accomplished guides and service with beautifully plush cabins offering the experience implied by Viking's advertising. These cruise companies don't advertise, they don't need to!
