Our history


Just in time for the start of the winter season in 2018/2019, we set sail as a premium provider of river cruises. Since then, we have dedicated ourselves to comfortable travel on water - with a convincing all-inclusive offer for our guests as well as exclusive destinations in Europe. 


Behind the VIVA Cruises brand is the renowned Swiss shipping company Scylla AG, which currently owns a fleet of 40 ships. With VIVA Cruises and our company headquarters in Düsseldorf, we would like to establish ourselves as an international river cruise operator. 


"Enjoy the moment" is our motto. How we live it every day? Through our dedicated team paired with high quality ships, we create for our guests places of experience with high standards. We focus on an extraordinary good relationship between our crew and our guests - and that with premium quality at fair prices.


Your vacation is a matter of the heart for us. For this reason, we work as a young and competent team in Düsseldorf every day to make your dream cruise aboard our ships possible. We work future- and growth-oriented and always give our best to turn your trip into unique feel-good moments. 

Quality that speaks for itself


You will see and feel the difference as soon as you step aboard our ships. High-quality details, fine workmanship and stylish furnishings accompany you on board.

A highlight on every cruise is our crew - because of special cordiality and that certain extra bit of service. Convince yourself!
