The Viking Star will depart on its 136-day voyage from Fort Lauderdale on 24 December 2021
Viking’s Viking Star is to sail a new world cruise in 2021-2022, spanning 136 days, 27 countries and 56 ports, with overnight stays in 11 cities.
The 930-guest ship will depart from Fort Lauderdale, Florida on 24 December 2021. The voyage will visit ports in Central America, travel through the Panama Canal and sail along the west coast of North America before calling at Hawaii. Viking Star will then sail to New Zealand and Australia, before journeying through Asia, the Middle East and the Mediterranean on the way to the final stop in London, UK. Guests may also choose a shorter 119-day portion of the sailing departing from Los Angeles, California on 10 January 2022, and concluding in London.
Some highlights of the itinerary include three new ports of call for the cruise line. At Phillip Island, Australia, guests will be able to see the Little Penguins, who return at sunset each evening on Summerland Beach. The cruise will also call at the Australian town of Eden for the first time, along with Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city. While onboard, Viking will offer onboard lectures and entertainment which will provide guests with historical and cultural education specific to their journey.
“For more than 20 years, we have been committed to providing our guests with immersive and culturally enriching experiences while travelling the world in comfort,” said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking. “This has been an unusual year for all travellers, but we remain focused on the future and are pleased to offer our guests a new destination-focused world cruise that allows for extensive exploration in 2021-2022.”
