Viking to set sail from Sydney with 85-day Grand Voyage in 2025

Travellers normally booking back-to-back sectors can now sail all the way to Europe on an epic new itinerary, arriving in time for a European summer.

Viking's new Grand Voyage includes two separate visits to Singapore.

Viking is inviting travellers eager to gently meander their way from Australia to Europe to secure their stateroom on an epic 85-day one-way voyage from Sydney to Barcelona.

While normally offered across seven separate itineraries, the cruise line has stitched them together to create one mega sailing departing from Sydney on 20 February 2025 onboard Viking Venus, arriving in Barcelona on 15 May.

Verandah staterooms on the ‘Australia, Asia and the Mediterranean’ itinerary start from $64,795 per person twin share, with the itinerary visiting 50 ports and including overnight stays in Bali, Jakarta, Colombo, Haifa, Florence, double-overnight stays in Bangkok, Mumbai and Venice and two separate visits to Singapore and Malaysia.

Guests booking early can secure heavily discounted airfares home with a $2,000 flight credit included per couple as an incentive.

Highlights of the voyage include cruising along the Great Barrier Reef, seeing Indonesia’s Komodo Dragons in their natural habitat, tucking into authentic Sri Lankan cuisine, viewing the architectural treasures of India and much more.

“We are so excited to finally bring this itinerary to our Australian and New Zealand guests, who have been booking these seven itineraries back-to-back for a while now,” said Viking ANZ Managing Director, Michelle Black.

“Sailing from Sydney to Barcelona really is such a fantastic voyage, exploring such different cultures and visiting lesser-known ports along with the iconic cities on many a travellers’ wish list.

“We anticipate the limited number of cabins we have available on this unique voyage will sell out fast so we encourage those planning their 2025 travels to book now,” Black added.
