Viking is responsible for the cruel and archaic confinement of millions of egg-laying hens in tiny, filthy cages.

These cages are so small and packed with birds that the hens can’t move... or spread their wings. Often, their body parts are caught in the caging, resulting in fractured or broken bones, deformities, and severe feather loss. Some hens, exhausted or unable to move, are trampled to death by their cage mates. Those that don’t die from the abuse spend their miserable lives trapped with dead birds and feces at their feet.

Thousands of companies around the world are ditching cages. Global commitments to go cage-free are being made by some of the largest companies in the world, including Carnival Cruises, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Yum! Brands, RBI, Nestle, and Marriott. In fact, all major cruise lines except for Viking have made global cage-free commitments.

Viking’s founder Torstein Hagen has claimed Viking‘s mission is to enable “our guests to explore the world’s most pristine destinations in comfort and in the most responsible way possible,” yet its animal welfare practices are outrageously outdated, cruel, and irresponsible.

Please sign this petition asking Viking to catch up with the cruise line industry and make a cage-free commitment.
