The Viking® Difference
Posted on 03/22/2018
Destination focused. Culturally enriching.
Viking believes 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.
With ships thoughtfully engineered to bring the outside in, Viking has fine-tuned the art of exploring the world in comfort. Graceful staterooms and suites were designed for ultimate comfort and serenity, and light-filled public spaces inspire and refresh you throughout your journey.
Voted the “Best River Cruise” by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler and named one of the Best River Cruise Lines by Travel + Leisure readers in the 2017 World’s Best Awards, innovative Viking Longships®—the newest and largest fleet on Europe’s rivers—feature premium amenities, the first true suites on river ships, and the most al fresco dining on the rivers.
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’s why Viking itineraries are designed to help you explore the most intimate nuances of your destination: its food, culture, countryside and customs.
Included shore excursions provide the perfect overview of cultural and historic highlights. But Viking also takes you beyond the iconic. On most itineraries, you can choose an optional Local Life, Working World or Privileged Access experience. Onboard performances and presentations bring local culture and history to life.
Sail with Viking and experience a journey of discovery created for discerning travelers like you, with true explorer spirits.
