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.

SMALL SHIP EXPERTS
On a Viking ship, you will sail into the heart of your destination, so you can explore up close and in depth. Our innovative, award-winning Viking Longships have set the standard in river cruising: our intimate vessels have all the amenities of a fine hotel, providing the ideal opportunity to comfortably be transported each day to and from your next destination—where enriching discoveries are usually just a short walk from your ship.
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.
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.
Whatever your tastes, we believe dining is an important part of your journey, both onshore and on board. Our highly trained chefs are passionate about food and committed to providing an enriching culinary experience, whether you’re savouring authentic regional specialties or American classics. And our ships’ dining areas—from our elegant Restaurant to the Sun Deck and Aquavit Terrace, our al fresco dining area at the bow of the ship—are the ideal setting for hospitable, attentive and personalized service.
