Viking takes its guests on curated, elegant voyages to some of the most iconic rivers in Europe, Africa and the Far East, allowing a unique window on inspiring destinations and rewarding experiences.

Viking is quickly expanding its fleet and portfolio of river cruise itineraries to meet demand, with plans to launch seven new river vessels in 2019, including six Viking Longships and an additional ship specifically designed for Portugal's Douro River.
In 2015 Viking debuted its maiden season of ocean cruising and in February 2019 took delivery of its sixth ocean ship, Viking Jupiter, making it the largest small ship ocean cruise line. The sophisticated state-of-the-art Viking Ocean Ships can host 930 guests on itineraries all across the world.
