What Viking's Not : When most cruise lines are building bigger and more over-the-top ships, Viking provides a thoughtful, authentic and well-designed small ship experience ( river or ocean ) that brings you closer to the world’s cultures. You will not find casinos, kids ( not on ocean cruises, adults only ), umbrella drinks or needless distractions. Instead, you will cruise to intriguing and often little-known ports, enjoying ample time ashore, many overnight stays on ocean cruises and an included excursion in each port of call. And since a cruise with Viking is an inclusive experience, there is never any sales pressure to purchase spa packages or specialty items from our menus. Any extras you add are entirely up to you.

River Cruise Tips
When you book your trip will make a big difference in cost, so here are some tips about the best times to book a river cruise in order to get the best deal.
Selecting the right river cruise for your style comes down to four primary choices: the season, the river, the cruise line, and the cruise ship.
"Best known for its river
cruise ships, Viking is gaining recognition for its
ocean vessels...each ship design emanates Scandinavian
influences in the color palette of pale blues and pure
whites, as well as in the light-colored woods. One of
the more striking interiors is the Wintergarden lounge,
an open, airy communal space styled to feel as though
you are sitting under a forest canopy. More
specifically, the Tree of Life."
