Viking Announces 2023-2024 World Cruises

 Viking® have announced its new 2023-2024 Viking World Cruise, which will span 138 days, 28 countries, and 57 ports, with overnight stays in 11 cities.

As a result of strong demand among guests – with the 2021 and 2022 World Cruises selling out in record time – Viking for the first time will offer a choice of two departure dates for this popular extended voyage.

Guests may choose to sail on Viking Sky®, which will depart on 20th December 2023, from Fort Lauderdale – or on Viking Neptune®, which will depart Fort Lauderdale on 23rd December 2023; both ships will sail the identical itinerary in parallel.

From Florida, guests on the 2023-2024 Viking World Cruise will journey to Central America, before transiting the Panama Canal and sailing up the West Coast of North America.

A shorter 121-day Viking World Journeys itinerary is also available, allowing guests to join in Los Angeles and cross the Pacific Ocean to call in Hawaii, Australia, and New Zealand, before exploring ports of call in Asia and the Middle East. Finally, the ships will journey through the Mediterranean and conclude the voyage in London.  

Viking’s newest World Cruise itinerary visits dozens of the world’s most iconic cities, alongside lesser-known destinations, in one continuous itinerary. Overnight stays in 11 ports, such as:

  • Sydney
  • Haifa
  • Istanbul
  • Auckland
  • Bali
  • Ho Chi Minh
  • Yangon
  • Mumbai

While on board, Viking offers cultural enrichment through onboard lectures and entertainment – such as the Viking Resident Historian® program, which provides guests with a high-level historical and cultural education specific to their journey. Guests will immerse themselves in the world’s rich cultures during included excursions that provide unmatched insight into daily life, as well as Privileged Access® visits to cultural institutions.
