Viking® - Viking River Cruises
Exploring the World in Comfort
EMBARK ON A JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY
Viking® believes in offering extraordinarily well-designed cruises that bring you closer to the cultures of the world. With destination-focused itineraries across Europe, the Americas, Asia, Australia and beyond, we invite you to travel with like-minded travelers on what Viking calls The Thinking Person’s Cruise®, a culturally rich, immersive experience designed to help you explore and engage with your destination through its food, culture, countryside and customs—with enriching shore excursions, insightful lectures, Destination Performances, cooking classes and regionally inspired cuisine. Plus, with Viking Inclusive Value, just about everything is covered, from meals and beverages to shore excursions and free Wi-Fi. Enjoy all this while sailing on board one of our state-of-the-art vessels, whether it be a Viking Longship on Europe’s rivers or an ocean sister ship on the world’s great seas, recognized for their small ship luxury, streamlined Scandinavian design, refined onboard ambience and understated elegance.
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.
