At Viking, we believe in offering 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.
We have fine-tuned the art of exploring the world in comfort. From our Viking Longships® on Europe’s rivers to our elegant sister ships on the world’s great oceans and seas, our 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.
Travel should be more than just a trip—it should be a doorway to cultural insight and personal enrichment. That is why our 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, our enrichment programs bring local culture and history to life, complementing your time ashore.
Our destination-focused approach to river and ocean cruising has earned us a place in the industry as the world’s leading small ship cruise line. In 2021, Viking was named both the #1 River Cruise Line and the #1 Ocean 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 of these categories in the same year.
Sail with Viking and experience a journey of discovery created for curious travelers like you, with true explorer spirits.
