Viking Cruises has launched a series of trade training emails for agents to learn about Viking Expeditions, the cruise line’s new expedition voyages which debut in 2022.

Agents can register to receive seven weekly emails from May 18, 2020 to learn about Viking’s two purpose-built ships’ offerings to their clients, and how booking a Viking Expedition voyage benefits both agents and clients.

Set to sail in January 2022 is the 378-guest expedition ship, Viking Octantis, which will head to Antarctica and North America’s Great Lakes. A second expedition vessel, Viking Polaris, will debut in August 2022, sailing to Antarctica and the Arctic.

Viking Cruises said that the ships will boast “industry-first” features such as two complimentary underwater submersibles; an enclosed, in-ship marina called The Hangar that enables the launch of small excursion craft through the ship’s shell doors; and an onboard laboratory, where resident scientists will conduct research which guests can take part in, as part of Viking’s Cultural Curriculum.

Erin Kramer, trade marketing manager, Viking Cruises ANZ, said: “Our bespoke Viking Expeditions trade training email programme is perfect for agents who are looking for opportunities to upskill while spending more time at home.

“By boosting your expertise in this increasingly popular category, you maximise your opportunities to increase your commission too. And with departures in 2022 and 2023, all backed by our Risk-Free Guarantee, Viking offers your clients peace of mind to plan in advance.”
