It all depends how you define luxury. River cruising is much different than ocean cruising therefore cannot and should not be compared to ocean cruising. Viking is one of the better river cruiselines.

I am surprised Royal Caribbean International and/or Carnival Cruises have not bought a river cruiseline since it is getting more popular all the time. An advantage of river cruising over large ships are inland port stops and docking in the center of cities with planned excursions included in the cost.

I welcome Viking in the ocean cruise business.

Experiences over the years enabled me to have all the answers, but not necessarily corresponding with your questions.
