Viking River & Ocean Cruises

More than 24 years ago, Viking was founded with the purchase of four river ships in Russia and a vision that travel could be more destination focused and culturally immersive. Through the years, Viking has set the standard for what river cruising should be. Today, it is The World’s Leading River Cruise Line®—voted the #1 River Cruise Line by Condé Nast Traveler in its 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards; with a fleet of more than 75 ships sailing in Europe, Russia, Ukraine, Southeast Asia, Egypt and soon – the Mississippi.

Viking then took its destination-focused experience to the seas and redefined ocean cruising. In our first year of operating voyages — as well as the following five consecutive years — we were named the #1 Ocean Cruise Line* by Travel + Leisure readers in the World’s Best Awards. Also, Viking has been named the #1 Ocean Cruise Line by Condé Nast Traveler in the publication’s 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards. Our elegant ocean vessels sail across Scandinavia and Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, Alaska, North and South America, Africa and beyond. Inspiring destinations, state-of-the-art ships and a culturally immersive experience are what define a Viking cruise.
*Ship size category: 600-2,199 guests.

We will introduce not only modern river cruising to the “Mighty Mississippi,” but also a new, purpose-built ship, Viking Mississippi®. Inspired by the award-winning Viking river and ocean ships, she will feature a clean Scandinavian design and public spaces that are familiar to your clients but that have been reimagined for the Mississippi.

With two purpose-built Polar Class 6 vessels, Viking Octantis® and Viking Polaris®, Viking will also launch Viking Expeditions — sailing voyages in Antarctica, the Arctic and North America’s Great Lakes. Your clients can now experience all the comfort and elegance of our award-winning fleet with an expedition ship built specifically to explore the world's most remote destinations and allow them to immerse themselves in these regions.
