Viking Cruises’ fifth ocean ship, Viking Orion, arrived in Darwin on Tuesday 4 December 2018 for the very first time, and travel agents can’t wait to get on board.
As part of Viking’s popular Komodo & the Australian Coast Bali to Sydney itinerary, Viking Orion is currently docked in Darwin. She will then continue on to a selection of other iconic Australian destinations including Cairns, Townsville, Brisbane and Newcastle before reaching her Australian home port, Sydney, on 16 December.
Viking will be hosting a number of ship inspections across Australia and New Zealand and travel agents are clearly keen to get an exclusive look at Viking Orion, with over 3,000 having already registered their interest.
“With Viking Orion in Australia, it feels like Christmas has come early. We’re thrilled at just how eager our travel partners are to walk through our beautiful new ship. Photos and videos really don’t do it justice; experiencing our ships first-hand makes it easier to understand the Viking difference,” said Michelle Black, Managing Director, Viking Cruises Australia and New Zealand.
From 16 December, Viking Orion will spend three months sailing between Sydney and Auckland on Viking’s new Australia & New Zealand cruise route before heading north and recommencing the Komodo & the Australian Coast itinerary in early March 2019.
Travel agents wishing to see Orion for themselves can still register and Viking will confirm their attendance closer to the inspection date. Details here.
