Viking River Cruises is the world’s leading river cruise line, with the Viking Longships being the most popular river ships of all, thanks to their innovative new design.
Inspiring destinations, thoughtful itineraries, immersive cultural explorations, state-of-the-art ships, fine cuisine, excellent service and remarkable value. All crafted with personal attention to every detail. This is the Viking Experience. It’s the way your bartender has your drink prepared at just the right moment. The gentle guidance from your tai chi master during your lesson in China. Or the handwritten directions from your concierge to the oldest coffeehouse in Vienna. Every aspect of your time with Viking, from expertly prepared meals to carefully created enrichment programs and beautifully appointed ships, is planned to bring you closer to experiencing the most from your destination.
With more itineraries in more destinations worldwide, Viking offers behind-the-scenes insights and opportunities which set them apart from other travel companies. While they deliver the expected and iconic, such as visits to museums and landmarks, they also go beyond. On every itinerary, you can experience local life through such excursions as home-hosted visits or trips to local markets. They also offer the opportunity to see the working world of bakers and artisans, and the option for our guests to experience Privileged Access to museums, private collections and after-hours curated events.
Viking Ocean Cruises now lets you enjoy the Viking experience on a luxury ocean cruise. With two brand new 930-passenger ships in 2016 and a third arriving in 2017, Viking Ocean has become a leader among luxury at sea cruise lines.
Expand your horizons on comfortable, state-of-the-art ships, intimate and thoughtfully created by experienced nautical architects and designers to enrich your interaction with your destination in every way. Whether you seek to expand your palate, your knowledge, or just your circle of friends with like-minded people, Viking’s Ocean Vessels are designed with a unique onboard experience in mind, from the serene Wintergarden, perfect for a calming cup of tea; to The Spa, a Nordic sanctuary of wellness; to the Library, carefully curated with books to add to your knowledge.
