Viking Cruise Guests : Welcome back to the world

 

We are pleased to unveil a new collection of ocean voyages for travelers who are ready to get back out into the world-and for loyal guests who are eager to return to the familiar comfort of our small ships. These Welcome Back voyages are exclusively available for vaccinated guests, in accordance with local entry rules in many of the destinations-and as a complement to the Viking Health & Safety Program, which was designed to protect guests and crew even while the COVID-19 vaccine rollout is still moving forward.

We hope you are inspired by the initial itineraries, and Viking will be announcing more voyages in popular destinations as soon as government approvals are given. With the first departures beginning this spring, we anticipate that space will fill fast.

Hamilton to Hamilton Bermuda Roundtrip

Map of the Bermuda Escape itinerary
Day 1 - Bermuda (Hamilton)
The cultural center of the British Territory of Bermuda, Hamilton is graced with a distinct English flavor and pastel-hued streets; lined with stately government buildings and the massive Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity (or Bermuda Cathedral), Hamilton is one of the world's tiniest capitals. Embark your ship today and settle into your Veranda Stateroom. This afternoon, perhaps join a sunset cruise by catamaran around Bermuda's bays.



Day 2 - Bermuda (Hamilton)
Hamilton is set amid the beauty and biodiversity of Bermuda's subtropical coast. Verdant nature reserves, gardens and parks invite leisurely strolls amid the island foliage. Scenic shores, lined with a mix of craggy rock and beautiful bays fringed with pristine pink-sand beaches, offer picturesque vistas from land and sea. Set sail for a relaxing cruise on a glass-bottom boat and witness the stunning underwater terrain of Bermuda's bays. Or tee off on one of the island's many golf courses.

Day 3 - Cruise the Atlantic Ocean
Stay in shape at sea with a visit to our Sports Deck, or take a gentle stroll around our Promenade Deck. As you cruise, take in the sea views from the Explorers' Lounge or reserve a soothing massage at The Spa. Linger over tea and scones in the Wintergarden or soak up the sun on deck.

Day 4 - Bermuda (St. George's)
The historic town of St. George's is the longest continuously inhabited English settlement in the New World and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Founded in 1612, St. George's retains most of its original layout. Stroll along its cobblestone streets and alleyways lined with many of Bermuda's oldest buildings, including the rustic, white-washed exterior of St. Peter's Church. See the towering ramparts of Fort St. Catherine that sit above the site where the island's first British settlers came ashore.

Day 5 - Bermuda (St. George's)
Nestled on the island of Bermuda's East End, St. George's boasts many natural attractions. The clear, shallow waters of Tobacco Bay Beach, named after the wild-growing tobacco plants discovered by the island's first settlers, offer colorful snorkeling opportunities. At Crystal Cave, admire a labyrinth of stalactites, stalagmites and transparent lakes hidden 120-feet underground. Outside, you may explore the beautifully manicured gardens, a tranquil retreat.

Day 6 - Cruise the Atlantic Ocean
Perhaps you will get a morning workout at the Fitness Center and soothe your body with a hot sauna and a few minutes amid the refreshingly chilled air of the Snow Grotto. This evening, enjoy cocktails in the Explorers' Lounge and savor authentic Italian cuisine at Manfredi's Italian Restaurant.

Day 7 - Bermuda (King's Wharf)
A British Royal Navy stronghold for two centuries, the Royal Naval Dockyard, also known as King's Wharf, protected England's interest in the West Indies from both the United States and France during the 19th century. Discover the role it played during World War I and World War II, view the Clock Tower and visit the Bermuda Maritime Museum, housed in the beautifully restored Commissioner's House.

Day 8 - Bermuda (Hamilton)
Disembark your ship and journey home.

Iceland's Natural Beauty

Your Viking Cruise includes one shore excursion in each port of call (excluding embarkation and disembarkation ports), and there are many optional excursions in most ports that will allow you to customize your journey. A full list of available shore excursions is provided to each guest well in advance of each cruise.

 



Day 1 - Reykjavik, Iceland
Arrive in Reykjavik today and embark your ship. Take in the city's breathtaking setting from the deck or from your veranda. Our overnight stay here gives you more time in port to fully experience the world's northernmost capital.

Day 2 - Reykjavik, Iceland
Explore Reykjavik, one of the cleanest and most eco-friendly cities in the world. Vikings settled here in 870 AD, and today Reykjavik is home to endless charms, watched over by the majestic Esja mountain range. You will see the city's highlights up close, including the charming cathedral. And admire the cityscape from the Perlan, a hilltop, glass-domed landmark offering spectacular city views. Alternately, you may venture farther afield to take in the country's breathtaking natural beauty, from towering waterfalls and soaring mountains to blue thermal springs.

Day 3 - ĺsafjordur, Iceland
Uncover the natural beauty and history of the Westfjords peninsula in Iceland's most remote, and many say most breathtaking, reaches. Explore your port city of ĺsafjordur and the tiny and tranquil enclave of Bolungarvik, one of the nation's oldest fishing villages and home to the Osvor Maritime Museum. Alternately, marvel at the magnificent Dynjandi waterfall, a bridal veil of water cascading down a mountainside, or kayak amid some of Iceland's most picturesque locations.

Day 4 - Akureyri, Iceland
Visit Iceland's second largest city and admire its colorful architecture. Nicknamed the "Capital of the North," Akureyri prospered during its days as a Danish trading post. On a panoramic tour, view the city's beloved church and admire some of the 2,000 species of blooms at the Public Park and Botanic Garden.

Day 5 - Seydisfjordur, Iceland
Walk along streets of colorful wooden homes dating back to the 19th century or explore the surrounding fjord landscape, all overseen by starkly picturesque slopes and the soaring summits of Mounts Bjolfur and Strandartindur. The tiny town boasts a thriving scene of local arts and a history dating back to early Viking settlement. If you wish, you may follow a tranquil walking path from the town center along the banks of the Fjardara River.

Day 6 - Djupivogur, Iceland
Djupivogur has been a trading center since the 16th century. The town's Heritage Museum celebrates its commercial roots, and is located in the Langabud, the oldest warehouse in Djupivogur. The town is presided over by the towering Bulandstindur; a pyramid-shaped mountain famed in local folklore for its ability to grant wishes during the summer solstice. Stroll through the town as you embrace the pace of life here. Djupivogur has adopted the cultural trend known as "Cittaslow" which is dedicated to the promotion of sustainable living, improving the quality of life for its residents.

Day 7 - Westman Islands (Heimaey), Iceland
Heimaey is the only populated island in the Westman Islands. The scenery is stunning with its volcanic landscapes, moss-covered clifftops and picturesque homes with brightly colored rooftops. Witness breathtaking natural sights and learn about the volcanic eruption that took place here in 1973. Each summer, millions of puffins pay a visit and countless other species migrate here to feed and breed. During a tour, learn about the efforts taken by locals to protect the existence of Heimaey's wildlife.

Day 8 - Reykjavik, Iceland
Disembark your ship and journey home.

* One shore excursion included per port as indicated (included); all others available at an extra charge.

2022 Viking Cruise Destinations Overview & Guide

 



Europe River Ships and Itineraries

 

Sailing Europe's storied rivers, the award-winning Viking Longships offer a variety of stateroom categories and true (two-room) suites with full-size verandas. Onboard amenities include a restaurant, bar and lounge, library and expansive sun deck. The ships feature al fresco dining on the Aquavit Terrace, an elegant Scandinavian design and "green" features, such as solar panels, an onboard organic herb garden and energy-efficient hybrid engines for a remarkably smooth ride.

River cruises range from 8 to 23 days, with itineraries featuring Europe's Rhine, Main, Danube, Seine, Rhone, Douro, Moselle, Elbe, Dordogne, Garonne and Gironde Rivers; Russia's Volga, Neva and Svir; Ukraine's Dnieper; Egypt's Nile; China's Yangtze; and Southeast Asia's Mekong.

Mississippi River Ship and Itineraries

 

Viking will launch new destination-focused travel experiences on the Mississippi River in 2022, with its first 386-guests custom vessel, Viking Mississippi, with sailings ranging from 8 to 15 days.

Viking's arrival will bring modern river cruising to the Mississippi and will represent a major commitment to tourism and economic development in many communities along the river. Currently scheduled ports of call on Viking's new Mississippi River Cruises comprise seven U.S. states: Louisiana (Baton Rouge, Darrow, New Orleans and St. Francisville); Mississippi (Natchez and Vicksburg); Tennessee (Memphis); Missouri (Hannibal, St. Louis); Iowa (Burlington, Dubuque and Quad Cities); Wisconsin (La Crosse); and Minnesota (Red Wing, St. Paul).

The new state-of-the-art Viking Mississippi is inspired by Viking's award-winning river and ocean ships and will feature clean Scandinavian design, as well as public spaces that are familiar to guests but that have been reimagined for Mississippi River voyages. Purpose-built for the Mississippi and currently under construction in Louisiana, the five-deck ship's cutting-edge design, expansive windows and comfortable amenities will make it the largest and most modern cruise ship in the region.

Ocean Ships and Itineraries


In 2015, Viking introduced its first ocean ship with the naming of the 930-guest all-veranda Viking Star. One year later, Viking launched its second ocean ship, Viking Sea, which was joined by sister ships Viking Sky and Viking Sun in 2017, Viking Orion in 2018 and Viking Jupiter in 2019. Six more sister ships are on order, with options for four additional ships. These options could bring Viking's total ocean fleet to 16 ships by 2027.

The company's award-winning ships are engineered at a size that allows direct access into most ports, so guests have easy and efficient embarkation and disembarkation. Each ship boasts a private veranda in every stateroom, a choice of restaurants offering a variety of fine dining options, the most al fresco dining at sea, an infinity pool, a Nordic-inspired spa, panoramic Explorers' Lounge and thoughtfully curated book collections throughout the ship, and more-all designed in understated elegance.

Ocean itineraries are designed to maximize the amount of time travelers spend in their destination. These enriching itineraries include base and combination cruises sailing to Scandinavia and Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, Alaska, North and South America, and Africa.

Expedition Ships and Itineraries

 

Viking will launch new expedition voyages in 2022, with its first two 378-guest sister ships, Viking Octantis and Viking Polaris, with voyages that range from 8 to 44 days.

To develop the new expedition voyages, Viking has partnered with some of the world's most prestigious scientific institutions. The lead partner is the University of Cambridge's Scott Polar Research Institute. This relationship is underpinned by a major Viking endowment for scientific research into the polar regions, The Viking Chair of Polar Marine Geoscience, a Cambridge University full professorship based at the Scott Polar Research Institute, as well as a sponsorship fund supporting the Institute's graduate students. As part of this endowment, the Institute's scientists will undertake fieldwork onboard Viking expedition vessels and join voyages to share their expertise with guests. Viking has also partnered with The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, a globally recognized bird research facility, whose ornithologists will regularly be on board the expedition ships, providing guest advice and interaction.

Designed by the same experienced nautical architects and engineers that designed Viking ocean ships, the ships are optimally sized and built for expeditions - small enough to navigate remote polar regions and the St. Lawrence River, while large enough to provide superior handling and stability in the roughest seas. The ships will feature public spaces that are familiar to Viking's ocean cruise guests but that have been reimagined for expeditions, as well as new public spaces created specifically for expeditions. Straight bows, longer hulls and state-of-the-art fin stabilizers will allow the ships to glide over the waves for the calmest possible journey; ice-strengthened Polar Class 6 hulls will provide the safest way to explore; and U-tank stabilizers will significantly decrease rolling by up to 50 percent when the ships are stationary.

**Ship size category: 600-2,199 guests
