Viking‘s seventh ocean ship, Viking Venus, will join its fleet in early 2021, further solidifying the company’s standing as the world’s largest small-ship ocean cruise line.
The newest 930-guest sister ship will spend her maiden season sailing popular itineraries in Scandinavia and Northern Europe, including British Isles Explorer, In Search of the Northern Lights, Viking Homelands and Into the Midnight Sun.
“The spirit of exploration is at the heart of everything we do. We have always drawn inspiration from the original Viking explorers, who were the first to use the stars and constellations for long-distance navigation. Many elements onboard our ships honour those Viking explorers, and we are proud to host our guests on itineraries that sail some of those historic trading routes,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking.
“I am pleased to announce that Viking Venus will join our fleet in 2021, allowing us the ability to introduce even more travellers to the Viking Way of exploration,” he concluded.
Every Viking cruise fare includes an outside stateroom, a complimentary shore excursion in each port of call and all onboard meals as well as gratuities, port charges and government taxes. Guests also enjoy many complimentary amenities as part of their fare including beer and wine with lunch and dinner service, alternative restaurant dining, free Wi-Fi, self-service laundry, access to the Thermal Suite in the LivNordic Spa and 24-hour room service.
