The Viking Difference: The Thinking Person’s Cruise™
We travel to explore, to learn, to understand. At Viking, we believe travel should be more than just a trip—it should be a doorway to cultural insight and personal enrichment. That’s why our intimate, inclusive cruise itineraries are designed to help you explore nuances of your destination: its food, culture, people and customs. Here’s some of what we feel defines the Viking Difference:
Viking Inclusive Value
At Viking, we firmly believe that you should not have to open your wallet every time you want a cup of coffee, a glass of wine or an excursion ashore. Instead, our goal is to provide you with great value, so we’ve designed our cruises to give you more for your money with a cruise fare that includes everything you need, from meals and beverages to shore excursions and Wi-Fi. That is what we call Viking Inclusive Value.
- One included shore excursion in every port of call

What We’re Not.
When most cruise lines are building bigger and more over-the-top ships, we provide a thoughtful, authentic and well-designed small ship experience that brings you closer to the world’s cultures. You will not find casinos, kids, umbrella drinks or needless distractions. Instead, you will cruise to intriguing and often little-known ports, enjoying ample time ashore, many overnight stays 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.
