Viking Cruises has launched its 2018 river brochure which features destinations across Central Europe, France, Portugal, China and South East Asia, including new itineraries to Ukraine and Egypt.
New in 2018, the Kiev to the Black Sea itinerary takes guests on an 11-day journey to some of Ukraine’s most historic cities, including Zaporozhye, the ancestral home of the Cossacks, and Kherson, which was founded in 1778 by order of Catherine the Great. Priced from $5,395pp.
Taking guests to one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the 12 day cruisetour Pathways of the Pharaohs explores Luxor, the Valleys of the Kings and Queens, the Temple of Horus in Edfu and the iconic Nile river. Priced from $6,895pp.
Viking has also recently welcomed two new additions, Viking Hild and Viking Herja, to its fleet of river vessels. Viking Hild will sail the Rhine River from April on Viking’s Paris to the Swiss Alps itinerary, and later this year both new ships will sail Viking’s popular Danube Waltz and Rhine Getaway itineraries.
“We’re excited to launch our 2018 river brochure and give guest the opportunity to explore the unique Ukrainian itinerary that complements the high demand we’re seeing for Russia in both our river and ocean itineraries”, said Michelle Black, Managing Director Viking Australia and New Zealand. “We’ve also listened to the consumer and have great flexible air deals across all of our river itineraries.”
Viking has a number of earlybird offers available on bookings made by 30 June 2017.
To support the launch of its 2018 river cruise brochure, Viking is giving away seven golden tickets to randomly chosen travel agencies nationwide. Hidden among the Viking river brochure delivery, travel agents need to open their delivery to see if they are one of the lucky winners. Each golden ticket, which can be found between the brochures, entitles the bearer to an 8-day Rhine Getaway river cruise for two from Amsterdam to Basel (or vice versa) on a pre-selected date.
