World Cruise sells out in record time

Cruise popularity is still strong - cruising just needs to happen again.

As a strong indicator of the demand for cruising, Viking’s iconic 136–day 2021/2022 World Cruise sold out in record time.



“Demand for cruising is still very strong,” said Michelle Black, Viking ANZ Managing Director.


“We are now seeing a positive uplift in bookings for 2022 and 2023 across our river, ocean and expedition portfolio’s.


“Anecdotal feedback and qualitative past passenger research has identified a strong belief that once international travel is open there will be huge demand for available capacity which is driving the current booking pattern.


“As can be seen from the results of our World Cruise, we are also seeing a strong trend towards longer itineraries.


“After this past year, people are reviewing and reassessing their future plans, and are putting their wish list into action.”


Sailing on Viking’s award-winning 930-guest all-veranda Viking Starthis grand voyage allows guests to explore islands of the Caribbean and the South Pacific; call upon ports in Asia, from Hong Kong to Bangkok; explore countries of the Middle East, including Oman, Jordan, Egypt and Israel; and sail through the Mediterranean before concluding in London.
