Why choose Viking Ocean Cruises
Viking’s ships are beautifully designed and luxurious, offering so many places to relax and unwind, from the indoor-outdoor lounge Wintergarden where afternoon tea is served to the Explorers' Lounge, perfect for pre-dinner sundowners.
A lot comes included in the price of your fare, including the speciality restaurants, so you don’t have to worry about lots of hidden extras racking up your final bill, and with little touches like complimentary 24-room service and heated bathroom floors, you will feel quite spoilt.
There’s also a shore excursion included in every port, as well as complimentary wi-fi. Finally, all beautifully appointed cabins come with a balcony.
Cruising with Viking
Viking’s fleet of near-identical ocean-going ships Scandi style with their sleek, contemporary, and pared-back interiors.
The style of cruising is very much focused on calmness, relaxation and enjoyment, so do not expect late-night, raucous parties or overblown facilities and activities.
Instead, entertainment on board is sophisticated, educational and cultural, ranging from classical recitals to lectures with resident historians and astronomers (although, you will find the odd ABBA tribute night thrown in for good measure).
The 930—passenger ships are largely inclusive, with dining, wi-fi and drinks at lunch and dinner included in the fare. Itineraries are destination-focused, packed with plenty of port visits and shore excursions to ensure passengers get the most out of the places they visit.
Who should travel with Viking
Viking cruises attract a sophisticated, mature clientele who are looking for a cultural and destination-immersive cruising experience.
All of the ships within the fleet are adults-only, so couples, solo travellers and friends travelling together who are in their 50s or older are the typical demographic of passengers onboard.
Viking ocean cruise destinations
Viking’s ocean and world cruises traverse six continents and many give access to ports that larger cruise ships cannot reach.
Destinations include Alaska, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, South Pacific, the Baltics, Canada and New England, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Middle East, British Isles, Central and South America and the Indian Ocean.
