Viking is searching for someone seriously social-media savvy to become an official cruise reviewer and show the world what it’s like to sail the high seas on one of the line’s sensational ships.

ATTENTION social (media) butterflies, Viking needs your help.

The Scandi-stylish company, now boasting six ocean ships and 70 river ships, is searching for a travel agent that knows their way about the internet’s mega social media channels to become an official Viking cruise reviewer.


If you expertly navigate Instagram, love sharing your travel adventures on social media, have a solid following of like-minded wanderers, and can write about your on-the-road thrills then you might be just the person.


One lucky travel advisor will win a Viking Caribbean cruise and occupy a Deluxe Veranda stateroom on the 10-night journey called West Indies Explorer which is a relaxed roundtrip departing San Juan in October.

Just write a few words explaining why you’d love to set sail with Viking, and what makes you the perfect candidate to be an official Viking Voyager, and go in the running to bag this bootie.

The agent that submits the most creative written entry wins, it’s as easy as that, and you can click on this link to get started.





First up – and best of all – you will spend 10 blissful nights cruising the Caribbean on board the magnificent Viking Sea with both the British and American Virgin Islands as well as St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia, Barbados, Dominica, Antigua, and St Martin stops on the schedule.

Days will be spent walking beaches boasting perfect white sand, relaxing below tilting palm trees, and swimming in crystal-clear water before returning to the Viking vessel to enjoy the creature comforts of this contemporary cruise ship.

You will upload a swag of daily snaps, video and instastories while you’re bon voyaging and gather information for the cruise review and post-trip story set to run later right here on the Karryon website.


Then, when you get home from this sun-soaked adventure, you will not only be a bona fide Caribbean expert with heaps of first-hand experiences to share but a Viking Voyager which is an advantage when selling cruises to your customers.

That’s sure to snag you a few more social-media followers as well as lifting your profile as a travel agent that knows their way around cruising, so it’s win-win-win.



The competition will run from April 29 to May 13, to embark on the voyage departing Puerto Rico’s capital San Juan on October 22, with Viking covering the cost of the $11,990 cruise and the winner responsible for flights and other incidental amounts.

The travel agent that takes the prize will write a review of the cruise and a post-trip article to feature on as well as snapping, uploading and sharing daily photos on social media.
