Viking explores Asia with new cruise itineraries
Los Angeles, January 19, 2017

Viking Ocean Cruises will launch 13 new itineraries from 2017 to 2019, with the bulk sailing to destinations in Asia.


Guests will be able to choose base itineraries that range from eight to 23 days, with additional combination cruise options. In addition to Miami and Vancouver, sailings will embark from Asia-Pacific cities such as Mumbai, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Beijing, Bali, Tokyo and Sydney.

For instance, the Capitals of the Far East itinerary will take travellers on a 15-day voyage across three countries such as China, Taiwan and South Korea, while the Bangkok, Bali & Beyond sailing will take guests to seven ports of call throughout Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.


Viking’s ocean ships have a gross tonnage of 47,800 tons, boast 465 cabins and accommodate 930 passengers.


In 2017, the company will mark its 20th anniversary and welcome Viking Sky and Viking Sun to join Viking Star and Viking Sea in its fleet. Viking's fifth ship, Viking Spirit, will be delivered in 2018, and its sixth, yet-to-be-named ship will be delivered in 2019.
