THE VIKING DIFFERENCE: THE THINKING PERSON’S CRUISE
We travel to explore, to learn, to understand. As the world’s leading river cruise line, we believe in offering you extraordinarily well-designed cruises that bring you closer to the cultures of the world. That’s why our intimate, inclusive itineraries are designed to help you explore nuances of your destination: its food, culture, people and customs
THE VIKING WAY
With more itineraries in more destinations worldwide, we offer behind-the-scenes insights and opportunities that set us apart from other travel companies. While our included and optional shore excursions cover cultural and historic highlights, we also go beyond, sharing with you The Viking Way with our Local Life, Working World and Privileged Access experiences—opening doors to people and places otherwise difficult to visit.
Our Culture Curriculum, an exclusive onboard program, brings local history to life with lectures on history and art; tasting of vintage wines from your destinations; restaurant menus inspired by local cuisine; informative port talks; enriching Destination Performances featuring folkloric shows and musicians playing regional and classical music. Enlighten yourself further with our Library’s carefully curated collection of informative and inspirational books.
SERENE SCANDINAVIAN SPACES.
We have fine-tuned the art of exploring the world in comfort. Our ships have been thoughtfully engineered by nautical architects to bring the outside in with large, expansive windows. Graceful staterooms and suites are designed for ultimate comfort and serenity, and light-filled public spaces inspire and refresh you throughout your journey. We’ve designed our ships down to the most minute detail—from the light and airy Atrium to the relaxing Viking Lounge.
More Stateroom Variety Than Other Ships.
Your private sanctuary on the river. Viking’s innovative thinking and patented design provides you with more choices and a more enriching overall experience than other ships. Each of our spacious staterooms offers deluxe comfort during your river cruise. Whichever stateroom you choose, your hotel-style bed topped with European linens and duvets provides the perfect place to turn in after a full day of exploring Europe’s great towns and cities. And you’ll feel pampered by bathrooms equipped with heated floors and premium Freyja™ bath products.
