Itineraries Affected by Temporary Suspension of Operations—Updated April 6, 2021

On March 11, 2020, Viking was the first cruise line to suspend operations of our river and ocean cruises. Our commitment to our family of guests and employees is that their safety and wellbeing is always our top priority.

As travel restrictions around the world continue to make international and cruise ship travel particularly complicated, we have made the decision to extend our suspension of previously scheduled river departures through June 30, 2021 and ocean departures through July 31, 2021. Additional operational complexities in some destinations require us to cancel further departures through the remainder of the 2021 season in Alaska, as well as in Russia and Ukraine. (Note: Recently announced sailings of England’s Scenic Shores in May and June 2021 will operate as planned.) Guests and their travel advisors on impacted itineraries have been notified directly by Viking Customer Relations.

Welcome Back Voyages: What is needed to travel?

England’s Scenic Shores: Viking is looking forward to welcoming guests back on board our England’s Scenic Shores voyages in May & June. These Welcome Back voyages are exclusively available for vaccinated guests. While travel entry requirements may continue to evolve, we are currently working with the respective government authorities to confirm what exactly will be required of our guests when it is time for their voyage. More information about these requirements, as well as all health and safety protocols, will be provided to guests booked on these sailings in advance of their departure so they may adequately prepare.
