Viking Has the Newest Small Ship Fleet

“Viking will have the largest small ship fleet by 2019.” - Cruise Industry News, Luxury Market Report

Our fleet is more than a decade newer than the average competitor.

Average age based on inaugural sailings as of October 2017

Staterooms Thoughtfully Designed for Your Comfort

Rejuvenate in a king-size bed with a soft duvet and goose-down pillows. Indulge in complimentary programming on a flat-screen LCD TV with an easy-to-use remote. Generous closets, plentiful USB ports and US/EU outlets, plush robes and slippers add to your comfort.
And our award-winning bathrooms feature large glass-enclosed showers with easy-to-see controls, premium Freyja® toiletries, anti-fog mirrors and heated floors.

“Bathrooms are superb, even at the lowest category, with glassed-in showers, sleek styling, plenty of storage, Freyja toiletries and—the biggest indulgence of all—heated tile floors and towel racks.”- Cruise Critic

Abundant Dining Options

We offer eight onboard dining options—all with no additional charge or fee. Our ocean vessels put the spotlight on fine dining in The Restaurant, which serves the widest selection of culinary options. Our alternative restaurants, The Chef's Table and Manfredi's Italian Restaurant, feature regional cuisine and specialty dishes. Plus, we offer the most al fresco dining at sea.

“Dining here is a culinary journey—a marriage of cultural enrichment, gastronomic exploration and local cuisine.”- Cruise Critic

More Time in More Ports

Viking itineraries are designed to allow you to spend more time in port, with overnight stays in virtually all ports of embarkation and disembarkation, so you can get the most out of each destination and your overall cruise experience.
