A luxury cruise ship which is entering service in 2017 will sail a second world voyage from Miami to Florida lasting 128 days in 2019.
Viking Sun which is a luxury cruise ship operated by Viking Cruises will sail an ultimate world voyage which will span 128-days, five continents, 21 countries and 44 ports, with 10 port overnights.
Viking Sun has not yet entered service but already the cruise line has announced the second world voyage the ship will sail. Viking Sun will sail its first around the globe cruise during its maiden season from Miami, Florida on December 15, 2017. The second world cruise by the ship will be just as good sailing from Miami to London in 2019.
Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking Cruises, said:
“We offer itineraries that are designed for explorers, and our World Cruises are the most extensive and culturally immersive journeys available in the industry. Our first World Cruise is 100 percent sold out, and we are pleased with the initial response to our second World Cruise itinerary among new and returning guests.”
“Our guests are experienced travelers who want to explore the world in comfort. As we continue to expand our offerings around the world, we will remain true to our guests—with an award-winning fleet design, the highest industry accolades and far more included value than any competitor.”
Prices for Viking’s World Cruise start at $49,995 per person and include Business Class air, transfers to and from the ship, all gratuities and service fees, complimentary visa service, free luggage shipping services for embarkation, and Viking’s Silver Spirits beverage package covering virtually all drinks on board.
From now through September 30, 2017, each guest who books the World Cruise will also receive $2,000 in shipboard credit, which can be used toward optional tours, spa services, onboard shops and beverages.
Viking Explorer Society members receive an additional $1,000 in onboard credit and added exclusive Viking Explorer Society member savings, if they book before September 30, 2017. Combined with Viking’s other inclusions, this represents a value of more than $20,000 per guest.
