Company Description
In 1997, Viking was founded in Russia. Through rapid expansion, the company has grown to be a leader in both river and small ship ocean cruising, with US headquarters in Los Angeles, California and operational headquarters in Basel, Switzerland. Today, Viking operates more than 60 state-of-the-art river ships and an award-winning ocean fleet, providing destination-focused, culturally enriching itineraries designed for travelers with an interest in geography, culture and history. RIVER CRUISES On Europe’s rivers, the award-winning Viking Longships offer a variety of staterooms, including true two-room suites, along with a restaurant, a bar and lounge, a library, an expansive sun deck and al fresco dining on the Aquavit Terrace. Ranging from 8 to 23 days, river itineraries feature Europe’s Rhine, Main, Danube, Seine, Rhône, Douro, Moselle, Elbe, Dordogne, Garonne and Gironde; Russia’s Volga, Neva and Svir; Ukraine’s Dnieper; Egypt’s Nile; China’s Yangtze; and Southeast Asia’s Mekong. OCEAN CRUISES In 2015, Viking introduced its first 930-guest ocean ship. Over the next three years, the fleet grew to five sister ships. The sixth, Viking Jupiter, joins them in 2019 with four more yet-to-be-named ships scheduled to launch by 2023. Each boasts a private veranda in every stateroom, a choice of restaurants, the most al fresco dining at sea, an infinity pool, a Nordic-inspired spa, thoughtfully curated book collections throughout the ship and more. Designed to maximize the amount of time travelers spend in their destination, ocean itineraries include base and combination cruises sailing to Scandinavia and Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, Alaska, the Americas and Africa.

Company reviews
"Micromanagement "
Former EmployeeService Technician
Management sucks, no room for error . Poor training. Great pay, but stressful. People are constantly leaving the company, people are always confused. I suggest more training

"Great place to work"
Current EmployeeSenior Manager
I was a little nervous based on some reviews when I started but from what I've seen the last year, it's been far from the negative comments. Management gives me opportunities to take on projects and helps guide me when needed. I feel a sense of ownership in what I do. As far as perks, the company takes good care of us. From great healthcare and time off.

"worst management I've ever worked for"
Former EmployeeAgent
one of the benefits is going on a free cruise. good luck trying to get the time off, oh if management doesn't like you, you won't ever go on a cruise they have the final say. extremely unprofessional.
Pros:
Cons:

"Extreme Micromanagement"
Former EmployeeTravel Consultant
Management needs to be on the same page as their departments with policies and procedures. Management always seems to be in the dark in terms of policy changes or new information that customer service is supposed to know with limited training or time to intake the information. Employees are penalized due to no fault of their own in terms of metrics due to faulty equipment and system crashes. Extreme micromanagement in terms of metrics but little to no support in customer or travel agent escalations. Any issues brought to management are met with gas lighting comments, passive aggressiveness and belittlement. low morale high stress environment seems to be the culture at viking, needs a reset starting with management.
