Viking Cruises has announced that it will be launching a new ship in Egypt.
Viking Aton will debut in September 2022.
Sailing on Viking’s 12-day Pharaohs & Pyramids itinerary, the new vessel will join Viking’s existing Egypt river fleet, which includes its identical sister ship Viking Osiris and Viking’s first owned and operated ship on the Nile, Viking Ra.
“Egypt remains a top destination for many of our guests who are inspired to discover the rich history and beauty of the region,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking. “We will always maintain our commitment to creating meaningful experiences that are focused on the destination. The addition of Viking Aton is a reflection of our continued investment in Egypt; we look forward to introducing the country’s cultural
treasures to even more Viking guests in the future.”
The new ship will be capable of accommodating up to 82 guests within 41 staterooms. All staterooms will have river views, while there will also be venues that are seen throughout Viking brand, such as the Aquavit Terrace.
Fares start from £4,665.00 per person.
