Viking Ocean Ship in Venice 800x600

Our intimate, inclusive cruise itineraries are designed to help you explore and engage with your destination through its food, culture, countryside and customs. Here is some of what we feel defines the Viking Difference.

 

The Thinking Person’s Cruise®

Viking Sea Christening London 800x600 

Every aspect of your Viking cruise is designed for the curious traveler seeking rich cultural immersion: on shore, on board, as well as pre- and post-travel. 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.

On Shore
The Viking Way of exploration takes you deeper, offering behind-the-scenes insights and opportunities. While we include the expected and iconic, such as visits to renowned museums and notable landmarks, we also go beyond, offering Local Life, Working World and optional Privileged Access experiences in places otherwise difficult to visit.

On Board
Every detail on board a Viking ship is meant to enrich and enhance your travel experience, helping you fully immerse yourself in the rich cultures you are visiting. From our thoughtfully curated shipwide library and the insights of our guest lecturers and Viking Resident Historians to cooking classes with our chef and wine tastings with our sommelier, Viking helps you connect to your destination in every possible way.

Pre & Post Travel
Looking for inspiration and perspective before you depart on your Viking voyage? Consult our online filmography, a comprehensive list of movies sure to complement your travel experience. Reading recommendations, cultural profiles and videos help you delve more deeply into your destinations—all produced to provide insight into different world cultures and to inspire you once traveling.

 

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. In addition to our included tours of must-see cultural 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.

Local Life
Viking provides fascinating insights into Local Life during excursions that reveal the rhythms of daily living in your destination. Experience Saigon’s vibrant streets by pedal cab. Peruse the dusty stacks at the most famous bookstore in Paris. Taste your way through a culinary tour of Sydney. This is the ideal way to experience a place like a local.

Working World
Witness wood carving in Bali. Tour the vineyards and wine cellars of Italy, New Zealand and beyond. Meet the harvesters of the world’s farms, from the banana plantations of Caribbean St. Lucia to the spice farms of Indian Goa. Glimpsing the world at work helps you tap into its passions and see its people anew.

Privileged Access
We have arranged exclusive entry for Viking guests to cultural treasures all around the world. Go behind the scenes at world-class museums, visiting collections seldom seen. Attend cultural performances of folklore, ballet and opera. Get an insider’s view during these private tours.
