Viking Cruises

Viking, formerly know as Viking Cruises is a multi brand company with three distinct divisions: Viking River Cruises, Viking Ocean Cruises, and Viking Expeditions. As of February 2020, it operates a fleet of 76 river vessels and 6 ocean ships. The Viking Ocean Cruises division was formed in 2013 and it began operating its first vessel, Viking Star, in 2015, with itineraries in Scandinavia, the British Isles, the Baltic and Mediterranean Sea. Being one-third the size of many cruise ships being built by major cruise lines, this allows all Viking ships to enter into smaller ports where other ships are not allowed or simply don’t fit.

 

Their ships spend more time in port than is common at other ocean lines, emphasizing a focus on the culture of their destinations. During those times, crew is allowed to be off the ship and explore their own unique small explorations on ports, making Viking one of the best cruise lines in the world for crew members, thus making the company very strict when hiring due to the huge amount of applicants.
