After leading the river cruise industry for more than two decades, Viking® has taken the same, small ship destination-focused experience to the seas and redefined ocean voyaging as our elegant vessels sail to the world’s most fascinating shores. Because Viking owns and operates their ships, they deliver a seamless, consistent experience, from the banks of the Amazon to the Adriatic Shores.
On a Viking Ocean Ship, you will sail into the heart of your destination, so you can explore in depth. The size of their vessels—with just 930 guests—gives Viking greater maneuverability, allowing them to dock where mega-liners cannot. Onboard, you can experience Viking’s award-winning service, all-veranda staterooms, the most al fresco dining on the seas and more.
From their prime central berths in the world’s greatest cities, such as London, Hong Kong, and Sydney, and in seldom-visited ports like Kotor, Montenegro and Scotland’s Shetland Islands, enriching cultural discoveries are just a short walk from your ship.
You will spend more time in port, with overnight stays in many ports of embarkation and disembarkation. With fewer days at sea, you will have ample time to immerse yourself in each destination. No other ocean line brings you so close to your destination’s doorstep. And no one else helps you uncover so much about a culture and its beauty while you are there.
With more time in port, discover breathtaking natural wonders and vibrant cultural centers when you join us on an ocean voyage. Sail the serene, blue-green waters of Norway’s fjords. Stroll the idyllic beaches of St. Lucia in the Caribbean. Or witness the snowcapped summit of the Osorno volcano in Chile. No matter which extraordinary destination you choose to explore, our small, award-winning ocean ships take you there in comfort.
Sailing Europe’s storied rivers, the award-winning Viking Longships offer a an elegant Scandinavian design and “green” features, such as solar panels, an onboard organic herb garden and energy-efficient hybrid engines for a remarkably smooth ride. In 2015, Viking introduced its first ocean ship boasting private verandas in every stateroom, a choice of restaurants offering a variety of fine dining options, the most al fresco dining at sea, an infinity pool, a Nordic-inspired spa, panoramic Explorers’ Lounge and thoughtfully curated book collections throughout the ship, and more—all designed in understated elegance.
