Viking Cruise Line


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

Commitment To You

We all travel to explore, to learn, to understand. At Viking, we believe travel should be so much more than just a trip — it should be a doorway to cultural insight and personal enrichment. That’s why our cruise itineraries are designed to help you explore the most intimate nuances of your destination: its food, culture, countryside and customs.

The design of our ships enhances your journey. Inventive and innovative, our Viking Longships have set the new standard in river cruising, expertly crafted to bring the outside in, so your destination is always within reach. With the most al fresco dining options on the rivers and vast windows that bathe the interiors in sunshine, you can enjoy the fresh air, natural light and exhilaration of the outdoors

When you have the best people, you have the best service—and Viking has both. Our English-speaking staff is trained to the highest standards. These loyal members of the Viking family return year after year.

At Viking, we have almost 4,000 of our own staff worldwide, all devoted to making your onboard stay the most memorable possible. We are so confident we will exceed your expectations that we are the only cruise line to guarantee its award-winning service.
