Travel Weekly reported that Viking River Cruises will no longer allow passengers under the age of 18 on new bookings. This change was made on August 1, 2018.  Viking now lists the following in the terms and conditions on their website:

“Due to the nature of our cruise and travel itineraries, the Carrier does not maintain facilities or services on our Ships for individuals under the age of 18 years. For all cruise/ cruise tours booked after August 1, 2018 (regardless of departure year), you must be 18 years old on or before the day you are scheduled to embark on the cruise tour.

Cruises through the 2019 may still have passengers under 18 as the cruises were booked prior to August 1, 2018.”

Previously, the age limit for Viking’s river ships was 12.
