The World’s Leading Small Ship Cruise Line
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
