Travel should be more than just a trip — it should be a doorway to cultural insight and personal enrichment. That is why Viking®’s itineraries are designed to help you explore and engage with your destination through its food, culture, countryside and customs.

Included shore excursions and carefully curated optional tours provide the perfect overview of must-see cultural and historic highlights. But The Viking Way® of exploration goes beyond the expected and iconic, offering Local Life, Working World and optional Privileged Access® experiences. While on board, enrichment programs bring local culture and history to life, complementing your time ashore.


The Viking® Difference

Viking offers you extraordinarily well-designed cruises that bring you closer to the cultures of the world. You sail into the heart of your destination, where new discoveries are just a short walk from your ship. They have fine-tuned the art of exploring the world in comfort. From their Viking Longships® on Europe’s rivers to the elegant sister ships on the world’s great oceans and seas, Viking’s award-winning vessels have been thoughtfully engineered by nautical architects to bring the outside in. Graceful staterooms and suites were designed with your comfort and serenity in mind, and light-filled public spaces inspire and refresh you throughout your journey.


Rivers, Oceans and Beyond

Viking is not only the world’s leading river cruise line, it is also rated the world’s best ocean cruise line. Its river fleet of more than 70 state-of-the-art ships sail the waterways of Europe, Russia, Ukraine, Southeast Asia, Egypt and, as of 2022 – the Mississippi. Its elegant ocean vessels cruise across Scandinavia and Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, Alaska, North and South America, Africa and beyond. 

Also in 2022, Viking will launch new expedition voyages, with its first two 378-guest sister ships, Viking Octantis® and Viking Polaris®, with voyages that range from 8 to 44 days in Antarctica, the Arctic and the Great Lakes.


Award Winning

Viking’s destination-focused approach to river and ocean cruising has earned them a place in the industry as the world’s leading small ship cruise line. In 2021 Viking was named both the #1 Ocean Cruise Line and the #1 River Cruise Line in Condé Nast Traveler’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards. This is the first time Viking has scored higher than all other cruise lines in both categories in the same year. They also received 11 first-place honors in Cruise Critic’s 9th annual Cruisers’ Choice Awards, sweeping all major categories, including the newly added Best for River Cruises category.
