Viking Shares 2026 Ocean Voyages

Today, Viking Cruises has opened bookings for its 2026 ocean voyages, and the brand also revealed voyages for its newest ship, Viking Vesta, joining the fleet in July 2025. 

“We have always done things a bit differently. At Viking, we are contrarians. We design travel experiences for thinking people, with no children and no casinos,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking. “We are pleased that our approach has resonated with so many—and with the addition of the Viking Vesta to our ocean fleet, we look forward to introducing even more curious travelers to the Viking way of exploration.”
