Coronavirus covid 19: Viking to return to world cruise by 2021

Viking Cruises has made a prediction for calmer waters ahead, announcing the return of its “world cruise” for the 2021 season.

The luxury cruise line which specialises in round-the-world itineraries announced that the popular 136-day sailing will return next year aboard the Viking Star.

“This has been an unusual year for all travellers,” said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking, “but we remain focused on the future and are pleased to offer our guests a new destination-focused World Cruise that allows for extensive exploration in 2021-2022.”

The cruise line was one of the first to suspend both ocean and river sailings on March 11 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Viking Sun, which was carrying passengers on the world cruise had to cut the trip short by two months, stopping in Indonesia.
