‘This is the first time we have opened a whole season this far in advance,’ says Michelle Black, managing director Viking ANZ. ‘It is a positive indication of global demand and the return to cruise that we have been waiting for. This early release presents a great opportunity for our Australian and New Zealand guests to forward plan well into 2023 while we patiently wait for our borders to open.’
Viking released its 2022-2023 River Cruises brochure in January 2021. For the first time the brochure featured two seasons – a full 2022 season and selected 2023 departure dates, allowing agents and their clients to plan and book further ahead.
