The 930-passenger Viking Sun will depart from London on August 31, 2019 and travel to every continent except Antarctica. The cruise will begin by exploring the British Isles and Norway, before heading to Greenland, Canada, Bermuda, the United States and the sun-drenched Caribbean islands. From there the Sun will travel the Amazon River and allow passengers to experience the beauty of South America before heading up the west coast of Central America and the U.S. Next stop is the Pacific islands with stops in Fiji, New Zealand and Australia before cruising to several ports in Asia, including China, Singapore, Sri Lanka, India and Thailand. The Sun plans to visit Oman, Jordan and Egypt before cruising up the Suez Canal and visiting several different ports in the Mediterranean.
Fares for the Ultimate World Cruise begin at $92,990 per person, but Viking are also offering two ‘shorter’ cruises aboard the Sun – the first 127 days can be booked for $47,995 per person, and the last 119 days of the voyage can be booked for $45,995 per person.
Fares include complimentary shore excursions (excluding extra-fee excursions) and free unlimited WiFi. Ultimate World Cruise passengers also receive business class flights to reach the ship, transfers, service-fees and onboard gratuities.
“For more than 20 years we have been offering guests the most culturally immersive journeys available in the industry and we are pleased to announce the most extensive itinerary in our history,” Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking said in a press release. “Our world cruises offer guests the rare opportunity to unpack once and explore dozens of the best destinations on earth.”
