‘We can’t open up Egypt fast enough,’ says Kramer. ‘We are looking at more capacity and have a new ship due at the end of 2020, beginning of 2021. The message to the trade is get (your clients) in early.’ Kramer says the recently launched Viking expedition cruising, set to begin in 2022, has already generated plenty of interest.
‘We will have Polaris in the Arctic and Octantis in Antarctica, two brand new ships. We are also encouraging people to look at our Great Lakes cruising in North America, which would fit in well with clients flying to Chicago. No-one is currently doing a cruise quite like this scale on the Great Lakes.’
