Viking continues restart of limited operations

Viking has announced that it will continue restarting limited operations with a collection of sailings around the UK, Bermuda and Iceland beginning in June 2021. 

Due to increasing demand among past Viking guests in UK, Viking has also added two additional sailings of the England's Scenic Shores itinerary in June 2021. All of Viking's new Welcome Back voyages will be available exclusively for vaccinated guests. Reservations for the new Bermuda, Iceland and UK voyages are now open.

For the new Bermuda Escape itinerary, Viking Orion will homeport in Hamilton for eight-day roundtrip itineraries; with the new Iceland's Natural Beauty itinerary, Viking Sky will homeport in Reykjavik for eight-day roundtrip itineraries. For both itineraries, the small size of Viking's ocean ships will allow convenient access to both small and large ports in Bermuda and Iceland and will be available for a limited period this summer.

This will follow Viking's recent announcement to initially restart operations with domestic sailings in England for UK residents on board Viking Venus, beginning in May 2021. These initial sailings sold out within a week.

Those who sail the new UK, Bermuda and Iceland voyages will also experience Viking's industry-leading health and safety programme. Utilising a full-scale laboratory installed on every Viking ocean ship, all guests and crew will receive quick and easy non-invasive saliva PCR tests at embarkation and frequently throughout the itinerary. New air purification technology has also been installed on all Viking ships. Additional health checks, sanitisation and physical distancing measures will provide further protection for Viking guests and crew at all points of the journey.
