Viking Resident Historian Program Now Available on ALL Viking Ocean Cruises

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Over the years, Viking Cruises has curated onboard experiences meant to unravel the intense curiosity of world travelers. With enrichment programs designed to celebrate the life and artwork of Norway’s most famous artist, Edvard Munch (Munch Moments), bring Puccini’s classic love story “La Bohème” to guests with behind-the-scenes access to cast and crew members (The Metropolitan Opera), and spotlight the onboard artwork via walking tours of the ships (Viking Art Guide), it only seemed logical to introduce yet another transformative initiative: Viking Resident Historian program.

Viking Star - exterior

This new program has a carefully selected faculty of historians providing high-level historical and cultural education that is destination specific. Giving out a fundamental understanding of historical events in certain regions is Viking’s way of tapping into the interest of its target audience. The smaller, more intimate seminar-style roundtable lectures on art, architecture, music and refresher courses on major world events will bring a deeper understanding of the present while casting a spotlight on the future.

Some lecture topics and roundtable discussions by Viking Resident Historians include:

  • The Roman Empire
  • The Ottoman Empire
  • The Hanseatic League
  • Imperial Russia
  • The Elgin Marbles
  • Women Explorers
  • Venetian Naval Power
