Viking Will Home Port Two Ships In Malta This Summer
Viking Sea and Viking Venus will sail out of Valletta.
Viking Cruises announced today that it will restart operations in the Mediterranean with new ocean voyages for vaccinated guests beginning this summer. Viking Venus and Viking Sea will homeport in the Maltese capital city of Valletta—a cultural UNESCO World Heritage Site—and sail two different 11-day roundtrip itineraries in the Mediterranean. As a result of strong demand, Viking also announced today it is adding more sailing dates this summer for its Welcome Back voyages around Iceland and Bermuda. “We thank the government of Malta for its support and enthusiasm as we continue restarting operations,” said Torstein Hagen,
Chairman of Viking. “Malta is a fantastic destination, with ancient history, rich culture and a central location in the Mediterranean. We began calling in Malta in 2016 and look forward to welcoming guests back to some of the most historically significant and naturally beautiful areas of the Med—in both the Maltese archipelago, as well as along the Croatian coast, and around Greek islands this summer.”
