Viking Expeditions

Discover the world—in comfort—on a Viking expedition to the Great Lakes, Antarctica or even a Longitudinal World Cruise!

Viking is Perfecting Expedition Cruising

After being honored with over 250 major awards including the No. 1 Ocean and River Lines (as voted by readers of Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure), Viking now is perfecting expedition journeys on two new, purpose-built Polar Class vessels, providing journeys designed “for the thinking person®”—our curious guests.

Designed for Discovery
These ships were created to maximize exploration and comfort—from our 270°-view-auditorium; industry-first, in-ship marina for launching expedition boats; science lab; and curated library—to six dining venues! Plus, informative lectures by our onboard scientists—are all designed to enrich, enlighten and delight our guests. We’ve engineered these vessels for exploration—small enough to navigate remote areas, slender enough to sail critical canals, yet large enough for speed. They’re also made for steadiness, with fin and U-tank stabilizers; plus dynamic positioning and zero-emissions waste treatment to protect the environment.

Unparalleled Staterooms and Suites
All expedition staterooms feature our Nordic Balcony sunroom that converts to an al fresco viewing platform (complete with binoculars); heated gear-drying closet; king-size Viking Explorer Bed with luxury linens; private bath with shower, heated floor, anti-fog mirror and premium Freyja toiletries; and 55-inch, flat-screen TV with complimentary movies, documentaries and more.

Viking Inclusive Value
Viking provides everything guests need in their fare, from exploration gear to equipment: kayaks, zodiacs, special operations boats, even submarines—plus free Wi-Fi; beer, wine and soft drinks with lunch and dinner; 24-hr specialty coffees, teas and bottled water; complimentary launderettes; and ground transfers with Viking Air purchase.
