Viking Ocean Cruises has announced new itineraries in North America and the Caribbean, as part of its 2016 programme.
The company’s new ship, Viking Star, will conduct a Bergen to Montreal sailing – including a stop at the Shetland and Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland. The ship’s following itinerary will include the St. Lawrence River and the coast of New England, finishing in New York
“We have always had a vision to reinvent ocean cruising – to bring destinations back to the forefront of the itinerary and to build ships that are designed to help our guests better explore their destinations,” said Torstein Hagen, founder and chairman of Viking Cruises. “We launched our ocean cruises in Europe earlier this year, and just as the Viking explorers before us, we are now looking across the Atlantic for new discoveries. Our new itineraries in North America and the Caribbean will offer our guests experiences that broaden their horizons both on and off the ship.”
The vessel will then head to the Caribbean for the winter season, before heading back to Europe in February 2017.

· West Indies Explorer (11 days; San Juan to San Juan). Pricing starts at £2,990 per person. Sailing Dates: October 28, November 7, December 17 and December 27, 2016; January 6, January 16, January 26, February 5 and February 15, 2017.
