The Viking® Difference

Destination focused & culturally enriching.
At Viking, we believe in offering you extraordinarily well-designed cruises that bring you closer to the cultures of the world. You sail into the heart of your destination—where new discoveries are just a short walk from your ship.

We have fine-tuned the art of exploring the world in comfort. 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. Graceful staterooms and suites were designed with your comfort and serenity in mind, and light-filled public spaces inspire and refresh you throughout your journey. 

The Thinking Person’s Cruise®
Travel should be more than just a trip—it should be a doorway to cultural insight and personal enrichment. That is why 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. But The Viking Way® of exploration goes beyond the expected and iconic, offering Local Life, Working World and optional Privileged Access® experiences. While on board, our enrichment programs bring local culture and history to life, complementing your time ashore.

Our destination-focused approach to river and ocean cruising has earned us a place in the industry as the world’s leading small ship cruise line. In 2021, Viking was named both 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 of these categories in the same year.

Sail with Viking and experience a journey of discovery created for curious travelers like you, with true explorer spirits.

About Viking Expeditions
Expedition Ships and Itineraries

Viking will launch new expedition voyages in 2022, with its first two 378-guest sister ships, Viking Octantis and Viking Polaris, with voyages that range from 8 to 44 days.

To develop the new expedition voyages, Viking has partnered with some of the world’s most prestigious scientific institutions. The lead partner is the University of Cambridge’s Scott Polar Research Institute. This relationship is underpinned by a major Viking endowment for scientific research into the polar regions, The Viking Chair of Polar Marine Geoscience, a Cambridge University full professorship based at the Scott Polar Research Institute, as well as a sponsorship fund supporting the Institute’s graduate students. As part of this endowment, the Institute’s scientists will undertake fieldwork onboard Viking expedition vessels and join voyages to share their expertise with guests. Viking has also partnered with The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, a globally recognized bird research facility, whose ornithologists will regularly be on board the expedition ships, providing guest advice and interaction.

Designed by the same experienced nautical architects and engineers that designed Viking ocean ships, the ships are optimally sized and built for expeditions – small enough to navigate remote polar regions and the St. Lawrence River, while large enough to provide superior handling and stability in the roughest seas. The ships will feature public spaces that are familiar to Viking’s ocean cruise guests but that have been reimagined for expeditions, as well as new public spaces created specifically for expeditions. Straight bows, longer hulls and state-of-the-art fin stabilizers will allow the ships to glide over the waves for the calmest possible journey; ice-strengthened Polar Class 6 hulls will provide the safest way to explore; and U-tank stabilizers will significantly decrease rolling by up to 50 percent when the ships are stationary.
