Having mastered luxury river cruises, it seemed only natural that Viking would eventually enter the realm of ocean cruises.
The results were catastrophic... for the competition
Since first touching water in 2015, the Viking Cruise brand has swept up industry awards with their somewhat unconventional sea-faring product.
Holding their ground on a set of standards garnered through years of success with their own Longships, they really hit the mark by featuring renown Scandinavian design paired with the amenities and superior service for which the brand is known.
The entire ship feels like a welcoming, luxury living room
It really needs to be seen to be believed, the attention to detail is quite the achievement.
You'll feel more value from the inclusions
While there is some measure of time that sets different stateroom categories apart, we really love the idea that everyone gets an excursion in every port of call; that there are very few amenities to be added-on as there is so much already included, including the top-rated spa and a beer and wine list; that every stateroom features an exterior view and a veranda; the list goes on...
Consider, there is only one paid option for a dining experience and it only includes an additional fee as it includes an excursion.
I loved my river cruise, will I love the ocean cruise?
We imagine you'll feel right at home, the open air concept and collections of original art will be both welcome and familiar.
Viking really paid attention to their successes from the river cruise industry, they still exclude smoking, casinos, and minors... by continuing to cater well to a community of people who value experiences and true travel, we think you'll love it!
Is there a main difference between the Viking river cruise product versus the ocean cruise product?
The practicalities of sea-faring cruises mean that you may have more time simply lounging on board, no need to feel guilty or otherwise compelled to get off the ship.
No room is under 270 square feet (25 square metres), so you'll have a little more space.
Did we mention 24-hour room service?
