Triple Win for Viking at Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards

Oct 05, 2023

Viking has been awarded the coveted #1 position in three distinct categories: Rivers, Oceans, and Expeditions in the 2023 Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards. This achievement marks the first time any cruise company has secured top position in all three categories simultaneously. Additionally, Viking was rated at the top of its categories for rivers, oceans and expeditions by Travel + Leisure in the 2023 World's Best Awards. No other travel company has simultaneously received the same honors by both publications.  

More than 526,000 readers of Condé Nast Traveler participated in the 2023 Readers' Choice Awards, contributing their valuable insights and opinions on their travel experiences. 

Torstein Hagen, the Chairman of Viking, expressed his gratitude for this monumental accomplishment, saying, "To be the only company ever voted #1 for Rivers, Oceans, and Expeditions at the same time is quite something. Thank you to our entire Viking family for delivering the experiences that make these awards possible."

Viking's distinction in these awards can be attributed to its unique approach to travel. Hagen highlighted one of Viking's defining characteristics, stating, "It is my belief that one of Viking's most important qualities is that we stand apart for all that we do not do. No children. No casinos. No nickel and diming." This distinctive approach has resonated with travelers worldwide, making Viking a preferred choice for those seeking authentic, enriching, and stress-free travel experiences.
