Venus will now sail the British Isles
Viking will debut her newest ship for the Brits only!
Viking announced that it will restart limited operations in May 2021 with three special sailings along the coast of England. Available exclusively for UK residents, the new eight-day ocean itinerary will sail roundtrip from Portsmouth on board Viking’s newest ocean ship, Viking Venus, which will be delivered in April. All other previously scheduled Viking sailings through May 31, 2021 remain cancelled.
Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking said “We welcome the UK Government’s support for the return of safe domestic cruises as an important component in the travel industry’s recovery.
In recognition of this support, and to celebrate the fact we have a British godmother—the esteemed broadcaster and journalist
Anne Diamond —we have chosen to name our new ship, Viking Venus, in the UK on May 17.” “
