New Around-the-World Cruises Coming Soon
If you’ve ever wanted to cruise around the world, you’ll soon get your chance.
Los Angeles-based Viking Cruises announced it will develop a 141-day cruise around the world that stops in 66 ports and 35 countries. Passengers commit to an experience lasting around five months.)
Trips aboard the Viking Sun launch Dec. 15, 2017, leaving from Miami. Stops include Havana, Cuba, where the ship will dock for two days before venturing through the Panama Canal. The ship then cruises to Los Angeles, New Zealand, Tahiti and Australia, before heading to Asia, where stops include China, India, Indonesia and Malaysia.
The boat will also visit North Africa, with stops planned for Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt, Tunisia and Algeria. Europe is next on the list, with the trip ending in Greenwich in 2018. Viking Cruises says the itinerary is subject to change, however.
The epic trip comes with an epic price tag at nearly $40,000 per passenger. Cabins include king-sized beds, heated bathroom floors and flat-screen TVs with on-demand movies to help pass the time at sea. Guests can also take a dip in two pools, one with a retractable roof and the other with a glass-backed infinity effect. Luckily, excursions are included in the ticket price.
