WHO IS VIKING

More than 20 ago, Viking® started in Russia with four river ships. Through the years, we have set the standard for what river cruising should be, and today we are the leader that all others follow. In 2015, we took the same small ship, destination-focused experience to the seas and redefined ocean cruising. And after just one year of service, Viking Ocean Cruises® became the world’s best ocean cruise line. We are a financially stable, dynamically growing company—the largest, most award-winning in the industry—with a fleet of more than 60 river ships and six ocean vessels cruising over 100 itineraries around the world.

WHY WORK FOR VIKING

As The World’s Leading River Cruise Line® and the #1 Ocean Cruise Line, we are constantly innovating and adding to our fleet each year. This means great opportunities for those who work for us. There is tremendous potential to advance your career, whether on board our ships or in our corporate offices. In addition, more people sail with Viking® than any other river cruise line, and we have over 40% of the market share. Our customers are English speaking, and the majority are Americans with an interest in the history and culture of the countries through which we sail. Because our onboard product and service quality levels are high, our customers are typically very satisfied, and this combined with generous gratuity guidelines means that as an employee on board a Viking ship, you can be well rewarded financially when you work for us.

A JOB THAT IS GOING PLACES

It is your career—if you have always dreamed of combining your love for travel with the ability to move up in your career, then Viking is a great fit. We have always been about discovery for both our guests and our crew; we believe that the destinations and moments of cultural enrichment are the reasons why people travel. As part of our crew, you can disembark if you are free when the ship docks, so you will have the ability to spend time ashore, refresh and explore.
