On Board

Our knowledgeable, experienced Swiss management oversees your entire on-board experience and handpicks each member of our on-board team. Rigorous training and inspiring leadership make Viking the employer of choice, which allows us to select the very best people to care for you, from stateroom stewards to the Captain. We are so confident we will exceed your expectations that we are the only cruise line to guarantee its award-winning service.

Enjoy a traditional Thai puppet show, and visit temples, monasteries and colourful villages on the banks of the Irrawaddy. These in-depth experiences are included as an essential part of discovering more about the places through which you cruise, and each activity is planned specifically to illuminate each itinerary.

Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. We offer a series of on-board multimedia talks to shed light on the history and culture of the places you visit. Topics may include a history of Thailand, Myanmar and the Burmese people, and key words and phrases in the local languages. These presentations provide a context for your own observations, enhancing your travel experience.
