THE VIKING DIFFERENCE
DESTINATION FOCUSED. CULTURALLY ENRICHING. CAREFULLY CURATED.
As The World’s Leading River Cruise Line®, Viking believes in offering you extraordinarily well-designed cruises that bring you closer to the cultures of the world. Viking's intimate vessels sail into the heart of your destination—where new discoveries are just a short walk from your ship.
Viking has fine-tuned the art of exploring the world in comfort. Each ship has been thoughtfully engineered by nautical architects to bring the outside in. Graceful staterooms and suites were designed for ultimate comfort and serenity, and light-filled public spaces inspire and refresh you throughout your journey. Plus, state-of-the-art Viking Longships®—the newest and largest river fleet in Europe—feature premium amenities, river cruising’s first-ever true suites and the most al fresco dining on Europe’s rivers.
This small ship, destination-focused approach to river cruising has earned Viking a place in the industry as not only the world’s most recognized cruise line, but also the most highly awarded one—voted the #1 River Cruise Line by Condé Nast Traveler in its 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards.
THE THINKING PERSON’S CRUISE
Travel should be more than just a trip—it should be a doorway to cultural insight and personal enrichment. That is why Viking 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 excursions 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 onboard enrichment programs bring local culture and history to life, complementing your time ashore.
