"The Viking World of Exploration"

Viking has just announced ordering two additional ships and will soon have 8 ships in its fleet of ocean-going vessels. Fueled by demand for upscale all-inclusive cruises, the company envisions perhaps even further enlarging its fleet. Viking is already a leader in river cruising and has now becoming a contender in ocean cruising. Those who enjoy sailing on smaller ships, this company is worth considering for future cruises.

We really want to experience one of these Viking Ocean ships, it seems like they were designed just for us! Big Smile

Yea, I keep looking at them too.

The first Viking ship we sailed on was the Cinderella. It was considered to be a ferry because of the cars onboard, but with cabins, different dining areas and entertainment, it was really a cruise ship travelling the Helsinki- Stoxkholm route.

I want to try Viking ocean cruises...... and I want to try Viking River cruises. They look top of the line and I like the idea of including excursion and wine and beer with meals.

I have also been looking seriously into Vantage River Cruises......with the 2 for 1 pricing rite now and Single cabins....... I may just do one this year.

The M/S Viking Cinderella belongs to Viking Line, a company completely unrelated to Viking Cruises. Viking Line looks like a great way to see parts of Northern Europe, but a vastly different experience than Viking Cruises appears to offer.

Thanks for correcting me WeCruiseToo. I thought the two companies were at least related. Interesting that they have very similar names and are in the same area.

Oh, it’s even more confusing than that. The founder of Viking Cruises (which we’ve learned is different from Viking Line) previously worked for another completely different company named Royal Viking Line! How hard is it to come up with a new name?!?

Okay I think I looked at the correct website for Viking Ocean Cruises in the article above and the itineraries look very interesting. Thanks for sharing the article.
