VIKING is continuing its restart of limited operations with new Bermuda and Iceland voyages.
The new Welcome Back sailings will be available for vaccinated guests, as is the case with Viking’s restart in the UK (CW 17 Mar), where two additional England’s Scenic Shore sailings have also been added this week.
Beginning in Jun, the Bermuda Escape itinerary aboard Viking Orion will sail eight-day roundtrip itineraries homeporting in Hamilton, while the Iceland’s Natural Beauty itinerary will also sail eight-day roundtrips, aboard Viking Sky, homeporting from Reykjavik.
The cruise line has been working closely with officials in the two countries for months, with Viking choosing the destinations specifically because of their popularity among guests, as well as their commitment to welcoming cruise ships, and reviving their country’s respective travel industry.
The small size of both Orion and Sky will also allow access to small and large ports in both countries.
Reservations for all the newly added voyages are open now, with Viking saying it is actively working on developing more Welcome Back sailings in a variety of other destinations, including Greece, Malta, and Turkey.
Meanwhile, Viking’s 2022-23 13-day Antarctic Explorer has been a hit, with a surge in demand seeing the line extend its limited time offer on the voyage.
Offering savings of up to $6,000 per couple, the deal is now available until the end of the month, with Managing Director ANZ Michelle Black saying Viking has seen 30% of its total Antarctica sales come through in just a few weeks.
