Viking brings its award-winning river cruise philosophy to the oceans with state-of-the-art small ships designed for destination cruising.
They offer more time in port on average than other cruise lines, culturally enriching shore excursions, and fewer sea days so guests can truly immerse themselves in each destination. And just like on the rivers, everything is included.
Viking’s elegant ocean ships accommodate just 930 guests. These trailblazing vessels feature serene Scandinavian design and spacious verandas with every stateroom. The company’s inclusive approach means guests enjoy free shore excursions in every port, have a choice of 10 superb dining venues – all without surcharge, as well as premium wine, beer and soft drinks with onboard meals. Guests also benefit from free access to Nordic Spa facilities with a hydrotherapy pool, steam room, heated beds and the only Snow Grotto at sea. Other inclusions that set Viking apart are 24-hour room service, shipboard wi-fi and self-service laundry, all at no extra cost, as well as evening entertainment with shows and classical music performances.
Viking recognises that it is no good trying to be everything to everybody. When most cruise lines are building bigger and more over-the-top ships, Viking provides a thoughtful, authentic and welldesigned small ship experience that brings guests closer to the world’s cultures. That’s why guests will not find casinos, waterslides, children, ship photographers or needless distractions on board. Viking Ocean Cruises dominated the 2017 Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards, with its two ships, Viking Star aand Viking Sea, receiving top honours in 10 categories.
