Designed for discerning travelers with interests in science, history, culture and cuisine, Chairman Torstein Hagen often says Viking offers guests “The Thinking Person’s Cruise®” as an alternative to mainstream cruises. Viking currently operates a fleet of more than 70 state-of-the-art river ships and an innovative ocean fleet offering destination-focused scenic cruising on rivers and oceans around the world. Viking has plans to grow its fleet of 930-guest ocean cruise ships to become the largest small ship ocean cruise line.

Among its industry accolades, Viking was rated the #1 ocean cruise line in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and was also voted the #1 River Cruise Line by Condé Nast Traveler in their 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards.
