Feb 2019: Viking Explorer Sale + Fly Free Bonus


The Viking Explorer sale is on now, and a number of itineraries have a fly free bonus and/or additional shipboard credit, which is great value for money.

In particular, The Grand European Tour (sailing from Amsterdam to Budapest) is a hugely popular itinerary, and the 2020 Pharaohs & Pyramids cruise (2019 is sold out) looks amazing as well!

New to Viking is their ocean cruising fleet - I've included a couple of those itineraries below too - Viking Orion was sailing around New Zealand last month, and their ships are simply amazing!

If you'd like to look at the full range of itineraries on sale, take a look at the 32-page brochure here.
Kind regards,
