This is certainly going to be an exciting year for the cruise industry, and while I’ve not traveled on a Viking Ocean Cruises yet, I am excited to experience what they have in store for those of us who want more from a cruise than beer pong in the hot tub (yes, I had that happen). If an ocean cruise with Viking even comes close to the Christmas Market River Cruise I sailed with them, then I suggest that you book your trip NOW, because I can’t imagine a more wonderful way to spend your vacation.
Viking launched it’s first ocean cruise two years ago, and has been adding ships and itineraries that are amazing and if you’ve got the time and the wanderlust, they even have a 141-day, around-the-world itinerary!
2017 is going to be spectacular. Especially for those of us who love to cruise out of South Florida as Viking will be debuting two brand new itineraries from my home port of Miami.
