Destination focused. Culturally enriching. Carefully curated.
As The World’s Leading River Cruise Line®, Viking® believes in offering you extraordinarily well-designed voyages that bring you closer to the cultures of the world. Its intimate vessels include all the amenities of a fine hotel and sail into the heart of your destination—where new discoveries are just a short walk from your ship. From river ships in Europe, Southeast Asia, Egypt, and along the Mississippi to 930-guest ocean ships that sail the world, we offer a tremendous variety of itineraries and departures. And our new, purpose-built Expedition ships journey to Antarctica and The Great Lakes, allowing us to take you to all seven continents.
Viking’s ships gently carry you to the world’s greatest cities, deliver you to the center of charming towns and villages and connect you to your destination. Viking’s itineraries are designed to help you explore and engage with the destination through its food, culture and customs. While we feature the expected and iconic in our included shore excursions and curated optional tours, we also offer Local Life, Working World and Privileged Access® experiences, opening doors to places otherwise difficult to visit.
All voyages include: Free Wi-Fi, complimentary soft drinks, beer & wine with onboard lunch & dinner, a free shore excursion in each port of call, 24-hour specialty coffees, teas & bottled water, port taxes & fees, ground transfers with Viking Air purchase, visits to UNESCO sites, enrichment lectures and Destination Performances. Viking has more than 250 awards to its name, including being the first cruise line to ever be named both the #1 Ocean Line and the #1 River Line in a single year in Travel + Leisure’s 2022 “World’s Best” Awards. Viking has also been rated the #1 River Line and #1 Ocean Line by Condé Nast Traveler in the publication’s 2022 and 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards.
