We launched Viking Ocean Cruises to reinvent the category. And it didn’t take long for us to rise to the top. If you prefer an elegant, serene ship ambiance, more time in each port and an inclusive experience complete with exquisite dining and thoughtfully curated shore excursions, the world’s best ocean cruise line was created for you.
The 930-passenger Viking Sea®—the second ship from Viking Ocean Cruises—touches water for the first time during its “Float Out” at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona. The construction milestone took place on June 25, 2015, little more than a month after the new ocean line christened its first ship, Viking Star.®
At Viking Cruises, we create excursions that enhance your understanding of everyday life in the world’s best destinations. From intimate home visits and folkloric performances to architectural achievements, our shore excursions take you beyond familiar landmarks to explore the hidden secrets of intriguing lands and cultures.
