DESTINATION: BASED ON ITINERARY

THE VIKING DIFFERENCE

As The World’s Leading River Cruise Line®, Viking believes in offering you extraordinarily well-designed cruises that bring you closer to the cultures of the world. Its intimate vessels 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. Plus, its state-of-the-art Viking Longships1—the newest and largest river fleet in Europe—feature premium amenities, river cruising’s first-ever true suites and the most al fresco dining on Europe’s rivers.

This small ship, destination-focused approach to river cruising has earned Viking a place in the industry as not only the world’s most recognized cruise line, but also the most highly awarded one. Last year, the company was voted the #1 River Cruise Line by Condé Nast Traveler in their 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards and once again named one of the Best River Cruise Lines by Travel + Leisure readers in the 2017 World’s Best Awards.

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 Viking itineraries are designed to help you explore and engage with your destination: its food, culture, countryside and customs.

Included shore excursions and carefully curated optional excursions 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 onboard enrichment programs bring local culture and history to life, complementing your time ashore.
