About Viking Cruises

Viking was established in 1997 with the purchase of four ships in Russia and is now the leader in river and small ship ocean cruising. 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. Additionally, Viking received 11 first place awards in the 9th annual Cruise Critic 2019 Cruisers’ Choice Awards, including “Best Overall” Small Mid-Size Ocean Ship and “Best River Cruise Line.” The Cruisers’ Choice Awards name the best cruise ships in the world, based solely on ratings submitted with member reviews published on the Cruise Critic website.
