— Viking Cruises
As impressed as we are with those accolades, we’re even more impressed with the experience that Viking offers its guests, with destination-focused cruises that allow you to experience the world in depth.
On their Thinking Person’s Cruise®, a richly immersive experience created to help you discover and engage, you are encouraged to set sail with like-minded cruisers. Created for curious travelers with true explorer spirits, Viking’s river, ocean, and expedition ships are deliberately designed to enrich and enhance your travel experience, helping you fully immerse yourself in the rich cultures you are visiting.
Viking helps you connect to your destination in every possible way, taking you deeper, offering behind-the-scenes insights and opportunities. Every element of a Viking ship is intended to improve your voyage and allow you to fully immerse yourself in fascinating civilizations. Viking offers a variety of ways for you to feel connected to your location, from the insights of their guest lecturers to regional cuisine and wines from your travel destinations.
Back onboard, Viking focuses on what they do best, which is to deliver meaningful and memorable cruise experiences. They don’t try to be all things to all people, so Viking offers no children under 18, no casinos, no smoking, no photography sales, no nickel-and-diming, no formal nights, no art auctions, and no inside staterooms.
On the other hand, everything you actually want is covered by the Viking Inclusive Value, including port taxes and fees, unlimited Wi-Fi, meals (including alternative restaurants and 24-hour room service), lectures, onboard activities, one shore excursion in every port, use of the laundrettes, 24-hour specialty coffee, teas, and bottled water, and no charge for beer and wine with lunch and dinner, so all you have to do is unwind and enjoy the trip.
Speaking of lunch and dinner, Viking’s destination-focused dining serves up some of the best regional cuisine available and the most al fresco dining at sea, including restaurants like Manfredi’s Italian, The Chefs Table, World Café, Aquavit Terrace, Mamsen’s, Wintergarden and more. Plus, guests can immerse themselves in local culture and cuisine at The Kitchen Table, an optional interactive culinary journey. At this onboard cooking school, experience firsthand how Viking’s ships’ world-class chefs bring distinct, local flavors from market to table.
Get adventurous on a Viking Expedition ship
Are you looking to be a little more adventurous? Discover Antarctica on a Viking Expedition ship. Admire the icebergs reflecting in tranquil coves and the snow-covered mountains towering from the basalt cliffs of the mainland in this icy wonderland. These beautiful vistas conjure tremendous drama as glaciers thunder into the sea and complete serenity as fur seals lounge on a floating sheet of ice. Humpback, Fin, and gigantic Blue whales have even been known to meet expedition ships that enter their home in these chilly and nutrient-rich seas.
Considering everything that Viking offers its guests, it’s easy to see why Viking was voted the #1 River Line and the #1 Ocean Line, and has consistently been voted as one of the top cruise lines for many years by numerous trusted names in the travel industry. Everything about Viking declares their commitment to a “destination-focused, luxurious, and enriching” cruise experience, from their ships to the way they visit ports to their dining to their enrichment programs.
