Viking’s ocean cruises for 2017, 2018 and 2019 are on sale now, including Scandinavia and the Baltic, Mediterranean and Adriatic, the Americas, Caribbean, Asia, Australia and New Zealand
Let’s start with the things that are most desirable about travelling by water: an exciting new destination almost daily; an elegant environment; stylish, spacious accommodation; delectable multi-course meals; impeccable service from a highly trained crew and inspiring entertainment. Take all of these pleasures and turn the dial of satisfaction up to maximum.
That’s what Viking Cruises has been working towards for the past 20 years, first with its river cruise ships and now with its recently launched ocean cruise ships. Its formula of stylish comfort, enlightening exploration and sophisticated fun has been carefully nurtured.
Standards have been raised to a superior degree, whether you choose to sail on one of Viking’s award-winning ocean ships or state-of-the-art river ships. One of cruising’s most powerful attractions is the array of destinations visited in one holiday, which is why Viking itineraries allow as much time as possible in ports – and a free excursion in almost every one to ensure you can explore without worrying about the cost.
As for the ambience, the Scandi-chic design is admirable for its copious comfort and attention to detail. Every stateroom on the ocean ships has a private veranda so you can relax and enjoy the views. Viking doesn’t believe alternative dining should be chargeable, so The Chef’s Table and delicious Italian food in Manfredi’s carry no supplement. As for the service, you would expect pampering on any cruise, but on a Viking voyage you’re as likely to make friends among the amiable crew as you are with your fellow guests. And the entertainment? Expect to move seamlessly from a classical trio playing in the lounge to the beat of a live band by the pool. Viking offers another compelling difference, and that’s the value.
Fancy some wine or beer with your lunch or dinner on board? It’s on the house. As is a great deal else – flights from the UK including selected regional airports for European cruises, onboard wi-fi, tea and coffee anytime and 24-hour room service.
There’s also free access to the wonderful LivNordic spa with its thermal suite, saunas, hydrotherapy and plunge pool and the first ever snow grotto at sea, so guests can learn how to chill Nordic-style. With another new ocean ship launching this year taking the total fleet to four, and each taking just 930 guests, Viking now sails to many incredible destinations – the sparkling Mediterranean, the historic Baltic, the majesty of Norway, the vibrant Caribbean, the wild landscapes of Alaska, the Americas, the exotic Far East and the ever-changing coasts of Australia and New Zealand.
Wherever you choose to cruise, Viking focuses on bringing the destinations on board. From the delicious food and wine being served, to the music and artwork on display throughout the ship, every aspect is designed to reflect the regions through which you are travelling.
