THE VIKING DIFFERENCE
A Viking journey is all about exploration, and some of your most surprising discoveries are on board. Their ships are not only beautiful, but interesting too. Each space is created to put you in touch with your surroundings. From the numerous outdoor lounge areas to the fascinating selection of books found throughout the ship, and the extraordinary views from the Explorers’ Lounge, there are endless ways in which you can get close to the wonderful world through which you are travelling. At Viking, they believe in offering you extraordinarily well-designed cruises that bring you closer to the cultures of the world.
THE SMALL SHIP EXPERTS
After leading the river cruise industry for two decades, they have taken that small ship, destination-focused experience to the sea. On a Viking ocean ship, you will sail into the heart of your destination. The size of their vessels allows them to dock where the mega-liners that dominate the world’s ports today cannot.
