Viking is well known for their amazing river cruises around the world. We have seen them more often on television offering free air or 2 for 1 pricing. Many of their river cruises sell out and for good reason.
Now, they have decided to take their passion of cruise to a larger scale and offer ocean liner cruises. One of the biggest differences you will see comparing it to other major cruise lines is that there are no inside or ocean view cabin - only verandah/balcony cabins. They believe everyone should have a great view on their cruise and still enjoy the luxury of what sailing on their river cruises. You will find one of their sailing in this issue leaving at the end of January and includes free airfare - yes FREE AIRFARE along with transfer when arriving and departing on the days of your cruise.
While they only have 5 ships at this time, this new venture has been well received by many cruises lovers. Instead of these "floating cities", their ships only hold 930 guests to give more of that small ship experience. Meals will have a focus on the destination, so you will get to have a taste of local foods while on board. While it is not all inclusive, they do include a lot as part of your cruise cost. There is free WiFi on board, beer/wine/soft drinks are included at lunch and dinner, as well as one complimentary shore excursion in every port. So come enjoy what is being called "The Thinking Person's Cruise" and see what Viking as in store for you.
