Viking Cruises has rolled out its new Viking Resident Historian programme on Viking Star, Viking Sea and Viking Sky this month.
A carefully selected faculty of historians will provide an enhanced level of enrichment for guests on all the line's ocean cruise ships, specific to the itinerary.
They will also conduct seminar-style roundtables – smaller, more intimate forums for discussion with guests, where the resident historian will examine in-depth subjects related to their own area of specialisation and/or particular areas of interest of the guests.
As with other onboard lectures, the Viking Resident Historian series will be presented in The Theater – and will also be filmed and made available for guests on the in-room entertainment system for the duration of the cruise.
The series is currently being professionally filmed in-studio, and starting in early 2018 will be available in its entirety on-demand through the in-room entertainment system on all the line's river and ocean ships.
