Viking Expeditions sets a new standard in expeditions, with a number of innovative industry firsts including an in-ship marina, working scientific laboratory, floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the ship and a fleet of sophisticated expedition equipment – at no extra charge.

From the moment you step foot on board, you’ll discover a distinctly Viking experience. Expedition ships feature all the comforts of our award-winning ocean ships – serene Scandinavian design, refined finishes and panoramic views from any spot on the ship.
