Viking says its limited-time European river cruise offers have seen record sales across its 2022 river cruise bookings. Now here’s your chance to get onboard by winning one of Viking’s 100 free self-famils.

Viking says recent demand for river cruise sailings has been the strongest since the start of the pandemic with sales more than doubling since its campaign launched, as travellers snap up the opportunity to travel again and explore Europe for less.

A large percentage of those bookings have come through Viking’s trusted travel agent network with a high proportion being new to Viking or new to cruising in general, indicating that there is a real eagerness to return to travel and an appreciation that guests can travel now.

The cruise line also said that feedback from the agent community was indicating that guests are trying new experiences they would not have previously considered, and travelling for longer, with Viking agents seeing guests booking back to back cruises across rivers and oceans, or including a cruise as part of a longer trip visiting family and friends.
