Viking has released details of its 2023-2024 Viking World Cruise, which will span 138 days, 28 countries and 57 ports, with overnight stays in 11 cities.
The announcement comes as Viking reports that there has been strong demand among guests – with the 2021 and 2022 World Cruises selling out in record time. For the first time, Viking will offer a choice of two departure dates for the extended voyage. Guests may choose to sail on Viking Sky, which will depart on Dec. 20, 2023, from Ft. Lauderdale; or on Viking Neptune, which will depart Ft. Lauderdale on Dec. 23, 2023 — both ships will sail the identical itinerary in parallel.
From Florida, guests on the 2023-2024 Viking World Cruise will journey to Central America, before transiting the Panama Canal and sailing up the West Coast of North America.
A shorter 121-day Viking World Journeys itinerary is also available, allowing guests to join in Los Angeles and cross the Pacific Ocean to call in Hawaii, Australia and New Zealand, before exploring ports of call in Asia and the Middle East. Finally, the ships will journey through the Mediterranean and conclude the voyage in London.
Pricing for the 2023-2024 Viking World Cruise starts at $54,995 per person; pricing for the 2024 Viking World Journeys itinerary starts at $49,995 per person, based on double-occupancy.
Both of Viking’s new World Cruise itineraries offer up to $50,000 per couple in Viking Value, including Business Class international air, transfers to and from the ship, all shipboard gratuities and service fees, complimentary visa services, the Silver Spirits Beverage Package, and free luggage shipping services for embarkation.
Guests who book between now and Sept. 30, 2021 will receive an additional $2,000 per person in shore excursion credit for any optional land programs and $1,000 per person in shipboard credit which can be used toward optional tours, spa services, onboard shops and beverages.
Viking Explorer Society members who book the 2023-2024 Viking World Cruise or Viking World Journeys through Sept. 30, 2021 will receive an additional $1,000 in shipboard credit per person.
