Viking River Cruises

Viking Cruises offers destination-centric river and ocean cruises designed for experienced travelers with an interest in geography, culture and history. Featuring onboard cultural enrichment and included shore excursions, Viking’s journeys explore scenic routes along the rivers of Europe, Russia, Egypt, China and Southeast Asia. As the world’s leading river cruise line, since its 1997 inception the company has grown to a fleet of 60 (in 2015) river vessels including the innovative and award-winning Viking Longships™. In 2013, the company evolved to the current brand name of Viking Cruises, and debuted its maiden season of ocean cruising in 2015 with the sophisticated, state-of-the-art Viking Star. The ship hosts 930 guests on exciting itineraries in Scandinavia and the Baltic; the Western and Eastern Mediterranean; and the British Isles. The Viking Star’s sister ships, the Viking Sea and Viking Sky, will set sail in 2016 and 2017. Viking has been honored multiple times in Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best” awards and Conde Nast Traveler’s “Gold List.” The company has also been recognized by the editors of Cruise Critic as “Best River Cruise Line,” with the entire Viking Longships™ fleet being named “Best New River Ships of 2012” in the website’s Editor’s Pick Awards. The travel trade has ranked Viking as the “Best Cruise Line for Luxury River Cruises” at the Luxury Travel Advisor Awards of Excellence, and as “Best Overall Cruise Line for River Cruising,” “Best New River Cruise Ship” and for the sixth consecutive year, “Best River Cruise Line for Travel Agent Support” in the 2014 TravelAge West’s WAVE Awards.
