Viking is a leading small-ship cruise line founded in 1997 with a vision of destination-focused and culturally immersive travel, Viking has since grown into a renowned travel company with over 250 awards to its name. The company's operational office is based in Basel, Switzerland, and it provides curious travelers with destination-focused itineraries that include different shore excursions at every stop and an onboard and onshore enrichment program.

In the year 2000, Viking purchased Europe's KD River Cruises, which allowed the company to grow its fleet and acquire rights to prime docking locations in key European cities.

We are big Viking fans having sailed with them 10 times. The Christmas market sailings are always magical. Knowing what I know now I would not book a last sailing before they lay the ships up for winter. It seems some maintenance was simply deferred for their upkeep period instead of being addressed. For example, one of the two coffee stations was out of order the entire time and the second failed near the end of the voyage, It also seemed they were not fully staffed which led to a lot of wait time for meal service.

Viking had the best staff for attentiveness to every need. They supplied large umbrellas (rained every day) and gave out water for excursions. The guides for the excursions were local but English was easily understood and they were both knowledgeable and able to entertain. French balcony was perfect for fall trip.
