Asia River Cruises

Asia’s rivers have long been the lifeblood of civilizations, their lush banks shaping the course of dynasties and nations. Stunning tableaux of green bamboo groves, farmlands grazed by water buffalos and emerald hills rising into misty mountains unfold along the Yangtze’s dramatic Three Gorges in China, the Mekong in Cambodia and Vietnam, and Myanmar’s fabled Irrawaddy. Asia of old lives along these shores, in floating markets, tiny villages and centuries-old temples. Learn More

Russia River Cruises

Viking River Cruises got its start in Russia, so we know it well. Today, they operate the finest fleet on the nation’s vast network of waterways—the Volga and Svir Rivers and the expansive lakes of Onega and Ladoga among them. Historic Moscow and canal-laced St. Petersburg highlight any visit. Beyond, Russia’s tranquil banks are lined with idyllic forests, potato and beet fields, open plains and the impressive green-domed churches of Uglich and Yaroslavl. Learn More

The Most Honored River Cruise Line

 

Viking Cruises includes both the most award-winning river cruise line in the industry and the world’s best ocean cruise line.

 

CRUISE CRITIC EDITORS’ PICKS – 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 & 2011

The international team of Cruise Critic editors selected Viking’s first ocean-going ship, Viking Star, as the Best New Ocean Ship, noting “the ship is so beautifully designed – with terrific alfresco restaurants, a beautiful pool area, a superb spa and the two-level Explorers' observation lounge – that you'll be hard-pressed to go ashore.”  Viking’s river cruises have also been honored for six consecutive years with awards including, Best River Cruise Line, Best New River Ships for the Viking Longships, and Best River Cruise Itineraries. Cruise Critic states that “In an expanding river market, Viking continues to reign.”

 

TRAVEL + LEISURE WORLD’S BEST – 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2013

Viking was named the #1 Ocean Cruise Line by Travel + Leisure readers in its 2016 World’s Best Awards, overtaking the spot previously held by a luxury cruise line for 20 years. Viking is immensely proud of receiving this honor just one year after its first oceangoing vessel, Viking Star, set sail on its maiden voyage. In 2015, the readers of Travel + Leisure awarded Viking the highest score of all river and ocean cruise lines in the magazine’s annual World’s Best List. Viking was also named the #1 River Cruise Line on Travel + Leisure’s 2013 and 2015 World’s Best List. Viking River Cruises has been recognized twelve times from 2004 to 2016 with these annual awards.
