Viking River Cruises – sail through the World’s Must-See Destinations
Since its first sailings along Russia’s waterways nearly 20 years ago, Viking® has reinvented river cruising. Today, Viking invites guests to sample the rich cultures and fine wines and cuisine along Europe’s great rivers—all aboard the continent’s most comfortable, state-of-the-art ships—and the storied rivers of China, Southeast Asia and Egypt. The innovative Viking Longships® are the most award-winning vessels on Europe’s rivers, placing high on such competitive rankings as Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List, Readers’ Choice Awards and Best River Cruise Ships, and Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards. Its fleet of 64 ships operates on more than 30 carefully designed itineraries around the world.
Viking Ocean Cruises
Join us as we usher in a new era of ocean cruising by taking the innovative thinking behind our award-winning river cruises and bringing it to the epic setting of the sea. Immerse yourself in your destination with regional cuisine, cultural lectures, a Nordic-inspired spa and magnificent views from spacious public areas.
Viking Ocean Cruises boasts a fleet of new, all-veranda, state-of-the-art ocean ships. Each sister ship carries only 930 guests and is engineered at a scale that allows direct access into most ports. Classified by Cruise Critic as “small ships,” the fleet features understated elegance and modern Scandinavian design. In her debut season Viking Star was awarded with the cruise industry’s highest honors, including being named Best New Ocean Ship and receiving a 5-star rating by the editors of Cruise Critic, receiving the highest rating in the mid-size ship category in Berlitz Cruising & Cruise Ships 2016, and being heralded by CNN as the “world’s best new cruise ship.”
