Viking Ocean Cruises: Enriching Experiences on Land and Sea

Viking Ocean Cruises is among the newest ocean cruise lines, and it's also among the best. In fact, Viking has consistently appeared at the top of Travel + Leisure's cruise line ratings. Viking Ocean Cruises ships are much smaller than other lines' mega-ships, which means you can visit smaller ports where bigger ships can't go. You'll also be able to start your shore excursions faster; one excursion in every port is included in the price of Viking cruise packages. Viking is a very destination-oriented cruise line, focused on providing immersive cultural experiences that really make you feel like a world traveler!

But when you're between ports, you won't be bored, as there's plenty to do on a Viking cruise ship as well. You could float your cares away in an infinity pool, melt away stress in the sauna or the thermal pool, explore the ship's collection of works by Scandinavian artists, attend an enriching lecture, or enjoy a Metropolitan Opera performance. When you're on a Viking ocean cruise, you're sure to have a relaxing vacation. And when you book Viking cruise deals with CruiseDirect, the price won't cause you any stress, either. We even guarantee the lowest prices on Viking cruises: If you find a better deal, we'll match it.

Viking All Inclusive Cruising
Viking All Inclusive Cruising

Part of the Viking cruise philosophy is the belief that guests shouldn't have to keep opening their wallets whenever they want to grab a coffee or take a shore excursion. That's why Viking ocean cruises are designed to be all-inclusive, from food and drinks to Internet access to adventures on shore. Providing great value is at the core of Viking's business, just like it is at CruiseDirect.

The cost of your Viking cruise will include:

  • One shore excursion in every port of call
  • Shipwide Wi-Fi
  • Access to the spa
  • Beer, wine, and soft drinks with dinner and lunch
  • Specialty coffees, teas, and bottled water
  • Port taxes and fees
  • 24-hour room service
  • Alternate restaurant dining
Immerse Yourself in Local Culture, Travel in Comfort
Immerse Yourself in Local Culture, Travel in Comfort

With Viking's Culture Curriculum, you won't just see new places on your cruise: You'll experience the local culture and gain an appreciation for the area's history. Viking's curated onboard offerings are designed to complement your shore excursions and make them more enjoyable.

  • Viking Lectures: The Viking Ocean Cruises lecture program features experts on the places you'll visit, from journalists and authors to archaeologists and former diplomats. A Viking resident historian will cover the "must-have" historical information about your destinations, but guest lecturers can draw on their lived experiences and their areas of expertise to share unique insights.
  • TED Talks: Viking has partnered with TED, a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to making great ideas accessible and sparking dialogues about our world. These short, powerful talks are focused on the arts, geography, history, science, and sociology and can help us to better understand and appreciate our world. These are screened every hour in our onboard theaters and are always available on your stateroom TV.
  • Destination Performances: Every Viking cruise itinerary features at least one Destination Performance representing an iconic performing art native to the region being visited, from Portuguese fado to Italian opera to dancers from the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia.
  • Munch Moments: Viking has an exclusive partnership with the Munch Museum in Oslo that includes the digital rights to their entire collection of works by famed artist Edvard Munch. Viking's Munch Moments, held every afternoon in The Living Room, are interactive experiences showcasing pieces of Munch's art, including his most famous work, "The Scream," as well as lesser-known paintings like "Moonlight Over the Sea."
  • The Met Under the Stars: Under the starry sky of The Theater, you can take in a production from the Metropolitan Opera's "Live in HD" series along with backstage interviews and insights about the technical details of the performance.
  • Viking Art Guide: Each Viking ship features a carefully curated array of Nordic artwork by both established and up-and-coming talents. Download the Viking app and you'll be able to take a self-guided tour of the art collection on board.
