THE VIKING DIFFERENCE - REINVENTING OCEAN CRUISING
Viking Ocean Cruises boasts a fleet of new, all-veranda, state-of-the-art ocean ships. Each sister ship carries only 930 guests and is engineered at a scale that allows direct access into most ports. Classified by Cruise Critic as “small ships,” the fleet features understated elegance and modern Scandinavian design. In her debut season Viking Star was awarded with the cruise industry’s highest honors, including being named Best New Ocean Ship and receiving a 5-star rating by the editors of Cruise Critic, receiving the highest rating in the mid-size ship category in Berlitz Cruising & Cruise Ships 2016, and being heralded by CNN as the “world’s best new cruise ship.”
Experience the world differently : up close and in depth. Our small ship size—just 930 guests—gives you access to small ports that larger ships cannot reach, and allows you time to get to know your destination and its culture intimately, at a more relaxed pace. On board, you won’t find casinos, kids or umbrella drinks. Instead, you’ll get to know your destination with delicious meals inspired by authentic regional flavors, enriching Destination Performances, fascinating lectures and more.
