All aboard! Viking adds new 2024 ocean voyages and departure dates

Set sail in 2024 to Northern Europe or the West Indies with Viking’s three brand-new ocean voyages plus extra departure dates on popular cruising itineraries to Hawaii, Panama, Iceland, the Mediterranean and more awe-inspiring destinations.

The new voyages include the epic 36-day Grand Fjords & Iconic Viking Shores cruise departing from Amsterdam to New York City in June and July 2024, which traverses Iceland, Greenland and the Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.

The magnificent Eldfell Volcano in Iceland is part of the new Grand Fjords & Viking Shores cruise.

Two new West Indies and Europe combination itineraries have also been added: the 13-day West Indies & the Iberian Peninsula cruise between San Juan and Barcelona; and West Indies & the Mediterranean, a 25-day ocean journey between San Juan and Venice, both departing March 2024.

Viking recently reported that ocean cruising is in demand with travel advisors experiencing increased enquiries for cruise holidays.

Viking ANZ managing director Michelle Black said the new itineraries and additional departure dates will provide more options for travel agents and guests.

“People are still making up for lost time, so they are booking longer experiences and planning further ahead,” Ms Black said.

“Many guests are choosing to travel now, but are also locking in their future plans well ahead of time to secure their preferred travel dates and stateroom category.”
