Viking Ocean Cruises Is An Instant Hit!

VikingOcean Cruises is one of the world’s newest ocean cruise lines — and one of the best. In fact, Travel + Leisure readers recently voted Viking as the #1 Ocean Cruise Line. Award-winning service ensures that you’ll be treated warmly.
Viking Ocean ships are much smaller than the usual mega ships. That means you can travel to smaller, more exclusive ports — and begin your excursions faster.

In fact, a shore excursion is included in every port. You can forget about having to open your wallet and just focus on fun. Viking Ocean Cruises includes lots of extras, like access to the highly-rated spa and specialty dining.

Aboard your ship, there are wonders to enjoy. Feel at one with the sea in an infinity pool while gliding to your next port. Take in works by
Scandinavian artists or relish MET Under the Stars, live performances by the Metropolitan Opera. Melt stress away in the thermal pool or sauna, or just watch the waves roll from your private veranda.
