The Viking difference

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • In 2022, you'll have the opportunity to sail to Antarctica, as well as North America’s Great Lakes, on new, purpose-built Viking Expedition ships. You can also be among the first to experience modern river cruising on the Mississippi, on Viking Mississippi, a new custom-built ship sailing voyages on the lower and upper Mississippi, between New Orleans and St. Paul.
  • In 2021, Viking was named 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 categories in the same year.
  • Viking River Cruises has also been recognized as the World’s Best by Travel + Leisure readers in the 2021 World’s Best Awards and has been recognized 17 times since 2004.
