Viking has launched two new River and Ocean Voyages for 2019, combining an ocean and a river cruise itinerary for a once-in-a-lifetime voyage of discovery.
“Our first two combination cruises in 2018 sold very well, which confirmed our expectations that Viking guests would love the opportunity to try two different cruise experiences on the one trip from home,” says Lubica Sibikova, Operations and Product Manager at Viking Cruises.
“These enriching journeys highlight the historic treasures, colourful cultures and seldom-seen sights of both inland and coastal destinations. Once we saw they were popular with our guests, we decided to launch more ….”
On the new 22-day Grand European & Viking Fjords, departing 26 May and 2 June 2019, guests will visit 19 ports from Bergen, via Amsterdam to Budapest, or vice versa, taking in Rhine Valley vistas from a 900-year-old castle and tasting the food and wine of Austria’s Wachau, on Viking’s most iconic river itinerary before settling in for the ocean section of their adventure, setting sail for Denmark via Oslo, Kristiansand and Flåm. Prices start from $12,990 per person which includes a saving of $2,000 per couple, as well as free flights if booked before 30 April 2018.
Voyage from Bergen to Basel or vice versa (both departing 2 June 2019), on the 15-day Rhine & Viking Shores & Fjords, enjoying highlights of the legendary Rhine River, before setting sail for Germany’s storied Black Forest and France’s multicultural Strasbourg via Oslo, Stavanger and Flåm. Prices start from $10,190 per person which includes a saving of $1,400 per couple, as well as flights for $995 per person if booked before 30 April 2018.
