What Sets Viking Apart
Whether on river or ocean cruises, Viking Cruises offers itineraries that are destination focused and carefully crafted with a mix of cosmopolitan and smaller ports of interest. Viking Ocean Cruises itineraries are specifically designed to offer more time in port than competitors, including late evening stays and overnights to take advantage of night life in select ports. River cruise itineraries are similarly planned.
All Viking cruises are priced to provide top consumer value by leveraging economies of scale and experienced management, and include such items as shore excursions and wine or beer with onboard meals. The company also ensures a focus on enrichment through shore excursions by local guides, regional foods, and Privileged Access for in-depth exploration of the destinations.
All Viking cruises include the exclusive Viking Culture Curriculum program that brings history and culture to life through onboard enrichment lectures; language classes; hands-on cooking demonstrations and classes; and local entertainment to complement included shore excursions
