Viking has released its 2023-2025 Ocean Cruises brochure. Now available to order from TIFS, the 250-page brochure is full of inspiring destinations to help your clients plan their next unforgettable journey.
In addition to new 2024 and 2025 departure dates on some of their most popular and previously sold-out voyages, the brochure also features six new itineraries including a new Mediterranean and North Africa journey, three new Transatlantic crossings, the West Indies & Panama Canal Passage and the recently released Grand Australia Circumnavigation.
Open for sale from late March 2023, and sailing from November 2024, the new 16-day Malta, Morocco and the Mediterranean voyage incorporates the iconic Mediterranean destinations of Barcelona, Marseille and Rome as well as new destinations for Viking, including Malta, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco. In Valetta, Malta, guests will experience the fresh produce and delicious wines the region is famed for and see Caravaggio’s painting at St. John’s Co-Cathedral before discovering the French-influenced architecture of Tunis. In Algeria, guests will explore the Casbah of Algiers and delve into centuries-old history amid stone-walled warrens, before sailing through the storied Strait of Gibraltar, one of Europe’s most significant waterways. In Casablanca, guests experience the city’s neo-Moorish splendour and French influences and visit the Hassan II Mosque.
“There’s no denying that the Mediterranean is a captivating destination, and with the addition of these North African ports, guests now have the opportunity to experience even more of the diverse cultures and destinations that fringe the Mediterranean Sea,” said Michelle Black, Managing Director Viking ANZ.
