Victoria Cruise lines reserves the option to substitute another vessel in its fleet, depending on winter maintenance schedules.

Single supplement: Add 75% of the cruise fare in a superior cabin and 100% of the cruise fare in a suite.

Children under 12: Staying in the parents’ cabin are charged 67% of the full cruise fare. Parents with children 2 and over, and adults sharing a triple, may find that a Superior Cabin is not roomy enough when a third bed or cot is placed in it. For such bookings, it is suggested that either a suite be reserved, or the third passenger reserve as a single or share basis in a separate cabin.

Children under 2: Staying in the parents’ cabin are charged 10% of the full cruise fare. In a Superior Cabin, infants under 2 must stay in a bed with a parent.

Service Charge: In lieu of tipping, Victoria Cruises charges approximately $25.00 for cruises of 5 days and under, to be billed on passengers’ credit cards upon check-in (amount may fluctuate depending on exchange rate). This service charge does not include a gratuity to our river guide or cruise director, which may be given at passengers’ discretion based on their satisfaction with services received, as can gratuities for additional special services requested by passengers. For porterage between the cabin and lobby, an optional gratuity of $1.00 per bag is recommended.

Guest satisfaction is our highest priority. Any service issue should be communicated to our Cruise Director, so that we can address it in a timely manner. Should any service concerns not be met to your satisfaction, the service charge can be adjusted by our Cruise Director at time of disembarkation.

Prices are subject to change without prior notice. A fuel surcharge may be added to the cruise fare, depending upon fluctuations in the price of fuel.
