Explore The Viking Way Brochure

The Viking Way of exploration is our commitment to delivering profoundly enriching journeys that immerse you in the history and culture of each destination while fostering the creation of lifelong friendships with your fellow like-minded travellers.

Importantly, The Viking Way places your wellbeing and comfort before all else, always.

After 23 years in the industry, our perpetual promise of ‘no kids and no casinos’ has become more than just a point of difference — it is now a point of reassurance in this new era of global travel. When it comes to forward-thinking cruising, there really is no comparison.

While our small, state-of-the-art Norwegian ships have consistently operated to the highest of health and safety standards, as the world continues to change in ways that we never could have imagined, we will continue to develop and improve procedures to protect all those on board.

When the time is right to travel again, The Viking Way will lead the way.
