Viking Announces World Cruise for 2021
If you are itching to explore the world while also enjoying the convenience of all-inclusive cruise travel, now might be the time to start saving up for Viking’s recently-announced 161-day world cruise.
Traveling the World Aboard Viking Sun
The cruise line doesn’t want to leave anyone behind on this over-half-a-year venture and is offering departures from both the east and west coast. East coasters have the opportunity to enjoy the full 161 days, beginning in Port Miami December 14, 2020, while west coasters can enjoy the last 140 days of the adventure, beginning in Port Los Angeles January 4, 2021.
Though Viking Sun will be bringing its guests and crew across six continents and 75 ports, the most important stop will be in Honolulu and Nawiliwili — marking the line’s very first sailing to Hawaii (view the full itinerary here).
Other highlighted ports of call include:
- Bangkok, Thailand
- Sydney, Australia
- Mumbai, India
- Moorea, French Polynesia
- Istanbul, Turkey
- London, England
- Hong Kong, China
Another cool feature of this cruise, in particular, is that all 465 staterooms on the ship include a private verandah (and who doesn’t like more incognito opportunities to people watch? Or, of course, enjoy the calming views of the ocean).
“With the announcement of our newest World Cruise, we remain firm in our commitment to offer travelers the most immersive and culturally enriching itineraries available,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking. “We are a destination-focused travel company, and it has always been our priority to help our guests connect to the destination. It is evident in everything we do – it is why we offer an included excursion in every port; why we have the most extensive Resident Historian program in the industry; and why our ships are smaller to bring travelers to more intimate ports.”
In order to go one step further to provide this cultural enrichment the chairman speaks of, the line will be offering educational opportunities to its guests, so they have the ability to really dive into the history and culture of the cities they are traveling to.
