Viking Cruises began as a river cruise line and only entered the ocean-cruise market in 2015 with the launch of the 930-guest Viking Star. But despite this short period of time, Viking has already made an indelible mark on the sector with its fleet of stylish, near-identical ships. The cruise line currently has nine ships in its fleet. Continuing its expansion, Viking is next planning to enter the burgeoning expedition market with the launch of two new purpose-built expedition ships, Viking Octanis and Viking Polaris, which will make their debut journeys in 2022.

With their sleek, yacht-style bows and teak promenade decks, Viking’s ocean ships are a million miles from the large liners that sail the seas.
