Viking Ocean Cruises has released details of its first foray into Alaska waters.
Viking will reposition its new, 930-passenger Viking Spirit on May 5, 2019 for the line’s first Alaska season. The 23-day voyage explores Japan, Russia, Alaska and Canada. In Alaska, the ship will call on Dutch Harbor, Kodiak, Seward, Valdez, Yakutat Bay, Icy Strait Point, Sitka and Ketchikan. Veranda staterooms start at $6,799.
From May to August 2019, the Spirit will operate eight “Alaska & the Inside Passage” cruises between Vancouver and Seward. The 11-day itinerary includes Ketchikan, Sitka, Juneau, Skagway, Icy Strait Point, Yakutat Bay and Valdez. Inclusive pricing for veranda staterooms starts at $3,999.
“Our destination-focused ocean itineraries are built on the same successful principles as our river itineraries – we offer our guests more time in port, enriching cultural experiences, the best-designed ships at sea, and we do not nickel-and-dime,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking Cruises.
