Viking Cruises is on a roll. The oceangoing arm of Viking River Cruises has announced it will introduce a total of 13 new itineraries between now and 2019, including the line's first-ever voyages to Alaska and British Columbia. The line has also rolled out an extensive collection of cruises to Australia, Asia and the Caribbean
"Our destination-focused ocean itineraries are built on the same successful principles as our river itineraries – we offer our guests more time in port, enriching cultural experiences, the best-designed ships at sea, and we do not nickel-and-dime," said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking Cruises.
Viking will now offer these new sailings embarking from Miami, Mumbai, Bangkok, Beijing, Bali, Sydney, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Vancouver. These voyages range in duration from eight to 23 days, and many cruises can be combined to create unique, "back-to-back" voyage options for those looking to sail longer.
New itineraries include the eight-day, Turquoise Seas of the Western Caribbean sailing roundtrip from Miami between November 2017 and February 2018; the 15-day Panama & Central America itinerary operating roundtrip Miami between December 2017 and January 2018; a 14-day Transatlantic Crossing from Miami to Barcelona aboard Viking Sky on March 3, 2018; a brand-new 21-day Passage to India exploration that sails between Athens and Mumbai on August 18, 2018; a 16-day Across the Bay of Bengal journey from Mumbai to Bangkok on September 8, 2018; and new itineraries in Southeast Asia that operate between September and April of 2019.
In 2019, Viking will also offer its first-ever Alaska cruises. A 23-day North Pacific Passage itinerary on May 5, 2019 whisks guests aboard Viking Spirit from Tokyo to Vancouver, in preparation for a series of 11-day voyages to Alaska operating between Vancouver's Canada Place cruise terminal and Seward, port for Anchorage. These Alaska & the Inside Passage cruises will set sail between May and September of 2019.
