Viking Cruises is proud to sponsor Ocean Liners: Speed and Style.

Ever since the launch of Viking’s first river cruise more than 20 years ago, our goal has been to make travel enriching and relaxing. Creating destination-focused cruises with an emphasis on local culture is an aspect of every Viking journey, and with the launch of our ocean cruises comes even more discoveries. In partnering with the V&A on this exhibition, we invite you to join us as we celebrate the joy of ocean travel, past and present.
