The Thinking Person’s Cruise®

Every aspect of your Viking cruise is designed for the curious traveler seeking rich cultural immersion: on shore, on board, as well as pre- and post-travel.

On Shore

The Viking Way of exploration takes you deeper, offering behind-the-scenes insights and opportunities. While we include the expected and iconic, such as visits to renowned museums and notable landmarks, we also go beyond, offering Local Life, Working World and optional Privileged Access experiences in places otherwise difficult to visit.

On Board

Every detail on board a Viking ship is meant to enrich and enhance your travel experience, helping you fully immerse yourself in the rich cultures you are visiting. From our thoughtfully curated library and the insights of our guest lecturers to cooking demonstrations with our chef and wine tastings of vintages from your destinations, Viking helps you connect to your destination in every possible way.

Pre- & Post-Travel
