Since its first sailings along Russia’s waterways 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 on board the continent’s most comfortable ships—and the storied rivers of China, Southeast Asia and Egypt. Their 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. With a river fleet of 64 ships, Viking offers 24 carefully designed itineraries around the world.
In 2015, Viking took its small ship, destination-focused experience to the seas and redefined ocean cruising. Their elegant, 930-guest sister ships sail the waters of Europe’s Baltic, North, Adriatic and Mediterranean Seas; North America’s Canadian and US eastern seaboards; and the Caribbean. And in just one year of service, Viking was named the #1 Ocean Cruise Line by Travel + Leisure readers in the World’s Best Awards 2016, echoing Cruise Critic, Berlitz Cruising & Cruise Ships 2016 and others who have applauded their state-of-the-art ships, refined atmosphere and focus on culture and enrichment. Light-filled public spaces, spacious staterooms and streamlined Scandinavian design, each ship has been carefully designed to help you connect with your destination in every way. Guests enjoy an included shore excursion in every port; a Culture Curriculum® of enriching onboard lectures, regional food tastings, and dance and musical performances; and ample opportunities to delve more deeply into cultural and geographic riches—from Norway’s magnificent fjords to Rome’s ancient past. Plus, when you sail with Viking, you get the best cruise value: your Viking Inclusive Value includes features and services worth over $200 per guest, per day—meals and beverages, excursions, complimentary Wi-Fi, port charges and just about everything you will need.
Due to guests’ incredible response, Viking is expanding their ocean fleet with the addition of sister ships Viking Sea® this year, Viking Sky® and Viking Sun® in 2017, Viking Spirit® in 2018, and one more by 2020. Viking is also offering more cruise choices with 11 new itineraries: British Isles Explorer; Cities of Antiquity & the Holy Land; Southern Mediterranean Discovery; Iconic Cities of the Western Mediterranean; Venice, the Adriatic & Greece; Italian Sojourn; South America & the Caribbean; From the Caribbean to the Amazon; Central American Shores & Cuba; New York, Bermuda & the West Indies and Trade Routes of the Middle Ages. And on December 15, 2017, the newest oceangoing vessel in its award-winning fleet, Viking Sun, will cruise from Miami to London on the first-ever Viking World Cruise, calling at 5 continents, 35 countries and 66 ports in 141 days. Or for a slightly shorter journey, guests can embark in Los Angeles for our 120-day voyage to London.
