A Viking journey is all about exploration and discovery, and some of the most surprising discoveries are on board in our beautifully appointed rooms, exquisite dining choices and curated on-board enrichment program.

Our ships are not only beautiful, but interesting, with each space created to put you in touch with your surroundings. From the numerous outdoor lounge areas to the fascinating selection of books found throughout the ship, the regionally focused dining choices, and the extraordinary views from the Explorers’ Lounge, there are endless ways in which you can get close to the wonderful world through which you are travelling.

Your Fleet

After leading the river cruise industry for two decades, and receiving overwhelming demand from our guests, we set out to reinvent ocean cruising with the vision of taking the best of the Viking river cruise experience to the seas. Guided by our guests, we achieved what we set out to do.

Our award-winning ocean fleet, which will number ten by the end of 2022, is engineered at a size that allows direct access into most ports, so guests enjoy easy and efficient embarkation and disembarkation. Each identical sister ship boasts a private veranda 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, and more—all designed in understated elegance.

“Personalised touches create a home away from home on every ship”

Your Accommodation Offerings

All Veranda Staterooms and Suites

We believe that our guests are entitled to a great view wherever they are on board, so when we designed our ocean ships, we made sure that every stateroom — no matter what category — had its own spacious, private veranda. Each stateroom is finished in a serene elegant décor and calm colours to create the perfect sanctuary with more room in which to relax, beautifully appointed ensuite, with a powerful shower and heated flooring, 24-hour complimentary room service, complimentary Wi-Fi so you can stay connected to home, and a flat-screen TV with movies on demand.

Every day a new view, with some of the largest suites and bathrooms on the seas”

Your Food Offerings

Fine cuisine and exciting dining opportunities are a fundamental component of any Viking voyage. Our ocean vessels put the spotlight on fine cuisine in The Restaurant, our main dining venue, which features a wide choice of culinary options. Our alternative restaurants — the World Café, The Chef’s Table and Manfredi’s Italian Restaurant — serve both regional specialties and western classics, and Mamsen’s, our traditional Scandinavian deli, features light meals based on Torstein Hagen’s mother’s own recipes. With so many on board dining opportunities, there is something to please every palate.

"Torstein’s “no kids and no casinos” catchcry means his guests are adult not just in age, but also in outlook. This is a cruise for grownups."
