What Does it Mean to be the World's Best?

In 2022, Viking was named both the #1 Ocean Line and the #1 River Line in the 2022 Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards, reinforcing Viking's position as a formidable industry leader. Viking was also recognized as the #1 Ocean Cruise Line from 2016 to 2020, overtaking the spot previously held by a luxury cruise line for 20 years. In 2021 Viking was named both the #1 Ocean Cruise Line and the #1 River Cruise Line in Conde Nast Traveler's annual Readers' Choice Awards. This is the first time Viking has scored higher than all other cruise lines in both of these categories in the same year. Viking provides destination-focused itineraries for curious travelers. Each journey includes a shore excursion in every port and an onboard and onshore enrichment program that provides deep immersion in the destination through performances of music and art, cooking demonstrations, informative port talks and carefully selected guest lecturers. With 250 awards to its name, the company currently operates a fleet of state-of-the-art ships that have received numerous accolades since their launch from industry experts and travelers alike. Viking was voted the #1 River Line and the #1 Ocean Line by Travel + Leisure in the 2022 World's Best Awards. Viking is also rated #1 for both Rivers and Oceans by Conde Nast Traveler, becoming the first cruise line ever to simultaneously earn #1 in its categories from both publications.

Viking marks its 25th anniversary in 2022; by the end of the year, Viking will have welcomed two new identical expedition ships, as well as two new identical ocean ships, new Viking Longships in Europe and new purpose--built vessels for the Nile, Mekong and Mississippi rivers.

Water Levels on the Rivers of Europe
Your river cruise may be affected by low-water or high-water. In most cases, high water occurs in the spring while low water occurs in heat of the summer, usually August. The cruise is focused on monitoring and adapting to current water levels so that their guests experience the least possible disruption. While high or low water can impact your river cruise, the cruise lines have contingency plans that may have you change ships, or be bused to your next location or a combination of both.  Your river cruise may be altered or cancelled because the river cruise company could not operate in such conditions. You should check with the cruise lines official web page> Updates on Current Sailings
about the current  conditions on the rivers and how the cruise company is handling adverse water levels.
