Viking Cruises today launched two new Mediterranean itineraries for 2018. The 15-day Mediterranean & Italian Sojourn and the 24-day Mediterranean Explorer & Crossing are both combinations of two existing, shorter itineraries. They are each offered on one sailing only, making them coveted “collectors’ cruises”.
. Departing from Barcelona to Venice on 29 July 2018, the 15-day Mediterranean & Italian Sojourn is a combination of Iconic Western Mediterranean and Italian Sojourn. Guests will enjoy overnight stays in Barcelona and Venice. In between, they will marvel at the historic Old Port of Marseille, and visit glamorous St. Tropez and Monte Carlo. In Italy, guests will explore Renaissance Tuscany, ancient Rome and elegant Naples before sailing around the boot via Sicilian Messina, the pristine ports of Crotone and Bari, and the remarkable Old Town of Šibenik, one of Croatia’s oldest cities.
The 24-day Mediterranean Explorer & Crossing sets sail from Rome to Miami on 4 December 2018, and is a combination of Western Mediterranean Explorer and Mid Atlantic Crossing. Sailing during the calmer winter season, Christmas will be celebrated in grand style. Guests will enjoy overnight stays in Barcelona and Lisbon, take in the ancient and Renaissance wonders of Rome and Tuscany, explore elegant Toulon and historic Marseille, and experience the colourful traditions of Spain in Valencia, Murcia and the cultural capitals of Granada and Seville. The mid-Atlantic crossing delivers guests to the lush Azores and pastel-hued Bermuda.
“As always, we are responding to client demand for immersive travel experiences, this time by offering seamless, extended Mediterranean itineraries”, says Lubica Sibikova, Product Manager Viking Cruises. “Guests can choose from a 15-day cruise in high season or a 24-day cruise over Christmas. These two itineraries are unique, and we expect plenty of interest in them.”
