The Vikings are coming! Lets Cruise…

Viking Cruise LineViking Cruises is at it again! First they launched TEN River Cruise ships this year (at the same time) and now they are building their first Ocean Going Vessel.  “There seems to be a big hole in the market that somebody ought to fill”, Viking Chairman Torstein Hagen told guests at the Beverly Hilton Hotel – so he is filling that hole!  This will be an “ALL INCLUSIVE” cruise.  Take a look at what is included:
1. No charge for specialty restaurants
2. Free WiFi
3. FREE excursions
4. Complimentary beer and wine at lunch and dinner

Other “Firsts” for the cruise industry is they will have NO inside or window cabins.  Only Verandas!  and the cabins will be 20% larger than average.  The ship will spend an average of 12 hours in port, and the 10 to 15 day cruises will include only one sea day.  Cruises will also start and end with overnights in the ports of embarkation and debarkation.  I almost forgot – the first ever infinity pool….

Another difference is there will be NO casino.  Instead there will be a piano bar…..No formal nights and NO TIES!  Hagen is emphasizing value and to start the ball rolling they are offering introductory two-for-one prices for a 15-day cruise of Northern Europe starting at $4999 per person with discounted air from $895 per person.  Offer expires July 31, 2013.

So, get ahead of the crowd – and with only ONE ship there will be a crowd –  get your deposit in for a journey of a lifetime.

Bon Voyage!
