Join us as we usher in a new era of ocean cruising by taking the innovative thinking behind our award-winning river cruises and bringing it to the epic setting of the sea. Immerse yourself in your destination with regional cuisine, cultural lectures, a Nordic-inspired spa and magnificent views from spacious public areas.

Owning and operating the world’s largest fleet of river cruise ships—and now three new ocean vessels—has advantages for our guests. When you cruise with Viking, you benefit from a level of expertise second to none.

We have a history of providing our guests with a way to get below the surface, not just “checking off” each port. That’s why our ocean cruises are centered around where you go, not just how you get there, with hand-picked itineraries so you can immerse yourself in history, music, art, cuisine – everything about your destination. In addition, we include excursions led by knowledgeable local guides in every port of call. You learn about the lands through which you travel via enriching lectures that bring history to life; through cultural adventures; in-depth pre-trip materials; and on-demand programming, all designed to help you experience the most from your travels.

7 Night Cruise sailing from Athens to Rome aboard Viking Star.

Travel through waters once ruled by mighty empires and flourishing city-states during an insightful 8-day cruise from Athens to Rome. Immerse yourself in Athens, the “birthplace of democracy,” and admire the famous Acropolis and see the bustling Plaka District. See remarkably preserved ancient ruins in Ephesus and discover Crete, the former seat of the once flourishing Minoan kingdom. Visit Messina, Sicily’s cultural crossroads, and Naples, gateway to Pompeii.

Highlights of this cruise:

Athens (Piraeus), Greece
Step on board to begin your journey. The ship will be berthed in Piraeus, the close to Athens. Relax and settle in to your stateroom, perhaps also unwinding at our Infinity Pool.

Crete (Souda Bay), Greece
Disembark today in Souda Bay, an important port since antiquity because of its natural harbor and location along Mediterranean trade routes. Visit the remnants of the once grand Palace of Knossos, the center of the Minoan kingdom that ruled over the island of Crete from approximately 2600 to 1100 BC. Or, tour an olive oil factory and winery to learn how these ancient Cretan traditions are influenced by modern production techniques. Alternately, see the influences of former rulers such as the Venetians and Ottomans during a walking tour of Chania’s Old Town.

Naples, Italy
In Naples, your choice of excursions abounds. Take in magnificent examples of Greek and Roman architecture and the Piazza del Plebiscito, the grandest public square in the city, facing the former Royal Palace of the King of Naples. Optionally, also explore Herculaneum, Italy’s “other” Pompeii, drive along the stunning Amalfi Coast, or take a trip to the summit of Vesuvius. In your spare time, sample a hot espresso, a slice of pizza (the world’s first pizzeria opened here in 1830) or a locally made limoncello.
