Sailing Europe's storied rivers, the award-winning Viking Longships offer a variety of stateroom categories and true (two-room) suites with full-size verandas. Onboard amenities include a restaurant, bar and lounge, library and expansive sun deck.

Mississippi River Ship and Itineraries
Viking will launch new destination-focused travel experiences on the Mississippi River in 2022, with its first 386-guests custom vessel, Viking Mississippi, with sailings ranging from 8 to 15 days. Viking's arrival will bring modern river cruising to the Mississippi and will represent a major commitment to tourism and economic development in many communities along the river. Currently scheduled ports of call on Viking's new Mississippi River Cruises comprise seven U.S. states: → Louisiana (Baton Rouge, Darrow, New Orleans and St. Francisville); Mississippi (Natchez and Vicksburg); Tennessee (Memphis); Missouri (Hannibal, St. Louis); Iowa (Burlington, Dubuque and Quad Cities); Wisconsin (La Crosse); and Minnesota (Red Wing, St. Paul). The new state-of-the-art Viking Mississippi is inspired by Viking's award-winning river and ocean ships and will feature clean Scandinavian design, as well as public spaces that are familiar to guests but that have been reimagined for Mississippi River voyages. Purpose-built for the Mississippi and currently under construction in Louisiana, the five-deck ship's cutting-edge design, expansive windows and comfortable amenities will make it the largest and most modern cruise ship in the region.
Ocean Ships and Itineraries
In 2015, Viking introduced its first ocean ship with the naming of the 930-guest all-veranda Viking Star. One year later, Viking launched its second ocean ship, Viking Sea, which was joined by sister ships Viking Sky and Viking Sun in 2017, Viking Orion in 2018 and Viking Jupiter in 2019. Six more sister ships are on order, with options for four additional ships. These options could bring Viking's total ocean fleet to 16 ships by 2027. The company's award-winning ships are engineered at a size that allows direct access into most ports, so guests have easy and efficient embarkation and disembarkation. Each ship boasts a private veranda in every stateroom, a choice of restaurants offering a variety of fine dining options, the most al fresco dining at sea, an infinity pool, a Nordic-inspired spa, panoramic Explorers' Lounge and thoughtfully curated book collections throughout the ship, and more, all designed in understated elegance. Ocean itineraries are designed to maximize the amount of time travelers spend in their destination. These enriching itineraries include base and combination cruises sailing to → Scandinavia and Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, Alaska, North and South America, and Africa.
New Ships and Itineraries
Next year, Viking will launch a seventh ocean ship, Viking Venus, as well as a new vessel on the Mekong, Viking Saigon, which will set a new standard for modern river cruising in Southeast Asia. In 2022, Viking welcomes new expedition vessels, Viking Octantis and Viking Polaris, which will explore Antarctica, the Arctic, the Galapagos, and North America's Great Lakes. Also in 2022, an eighth ocean ship, Viking Mars, and launch Viking's first ship on an American river, Viking Mississippi
Expedition Ships and Itineraries
Viking will launch new expedition voyages in 2022, with its
first two 378-guest sister ships, Viking Octantis and Viking
Polaris, with voyages that range from 8 to 44 days.
Destinations for Expedition Cruises include: Antartica, The
Artic, The Great Lakes, Niagara, Canada, The Galapagos, Brazil,
and the Caribbean. To develop the new expedition
voyages, Viking has partnered with some of the world's most
prestigious scientific institutions. The lead partner is the
University of Cambridge's Scott Polar Research Institute. This
relationship is underpinned by a major Viking endowment for
scientific research into the polar regions, The Viking Chair of
Polar Marine Geoscience, a Cambridge University full
professorship based at the Scott Polar Research Institute, as
well as a sponsorship fund supporting the Institute's graduate
students. As part of this endowment, the Institute's scientists
will undertake fieldwork onboard Viking expedition vessels and
join voyages to share their expertise with guests. Viking has
also partnered with The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, a globally
recognized bird research facility, whose ornithologists will
regularly be on board the expedition ships, providing guest
advice and interaction. Designed by the same experienced
nautical architects and engineers that designed Viking ocean
ships, the ships are optimally sized and built for expeditions
and small enough to navigate remote polar regions and the St.
Lawrence River, while large enough to provide superior handling
and stability in the roughest seas. The ships will feature
public spaces that are familiar to Viking's ocean cruise guests
but that have been reimagined for expeditions, as well as new
public spaces created specifically for expeditions. Straight
bows, longer hulls and state-of-the-art fin stabilizers will
allow the ships to glide over the waves for the calmest possible
journey; ice-strengthened Polar Class 6 hulls will provide the
safest way to explore; and U-tank stabilizers will significantly
decrease rolling by up to 50 percent when the ships are
