Viking will operate a 138-day world cruise in 2022-23 to 58 ports in 28 countries with overnight stays in 11 cities.
The world cruise will be operated by the 47,800 tonne Viking Neptune with 930 passengers, which will join the Viking fleet at the end of 2022.
The voyage starts in Fort Lauderdale on December 22, 2022 and crosses the Panama Canal before heading up the west coast of North America. Guests can also join the trip in Los Angeles for a 121-day itinerary.
The ship then crosses the Pacific to make calls to Hawaii, Australia and New Zealand before exploring ports of call in Asia and the Middle East. Eventually the ship will sail through the Mediterranean and end the voyage in London.
“World cruises are really special trips and they are still one of our most popular offers,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of the Vikings. “Our 2021-22 world cruise is sold out more than a year in advance, which expresses the enthusiasm of our guests who are looking forward to the return of international trips.”
