August 6, 2020 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Viking has announced two brand-new Panama Canal itineraries are now open for sale, including a one-off, 18-day Panama Canal & Coastal Holiday sailing departing 24 December 2021, and two departures of a new 11-day Classic Panama Canal Passage voyage, departing 6 and 16 November 2021.

The 18-day Panama Canal & Coastal Holiday sails from Fort Lauderdale to Los Angeles via six countries, including calls to Cozumel and Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, Cartagena in Colombia, Puntarenas in Costa Rica, León in Nicaragua as well as Colón in Panama, plus a full transit of the Panama Canal. Taking place over the holiday season, Christmas Day will be spent at sea while New Year’s Eve will be marked with the Panama Canal transit. Prices start from AUD$7,995 pp in a Veranda Stateroom.

Or guests can choose from two 11-day Classic Panama Canal Passage voyages from Fort Lauderdale to Panama City or v.v., visiting six countries including calls at Key West in the US, Cozumel in Mexico, Belize City in Belize, Roatan in Honduras, San José in Puerto Rico and Colón in Panama. Prices start from AUD$5,495 pp in a Veranda Stateroom.

In addition, three new departures of Viking’s popular 15-day Panama Canal & Central America voyage have been released for sale, cruising roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale with departures in October, November and December 2021. Visiting seven countries, the sailing is priced from AUD$6,545 pp in a Veranda Stateroom.

Each of the voyages will embark on the 930-guest Viking Star, one of Viking’s award-winning small ships in its fleet of seven ocean vessels. No matter where they sail, on a Viking ocean ship guests won’t find any children, casinos, inside staterooms or crowds. Instead, they will be greeted by serene, open spaces filled with natural light, alfresco dining areas, all-veranda staterooms, a Resident Historian and likeminded fellow travellers.

To help travellers plan with confidence, Viking’s Inclusive Value means everything they need is included in the fare, such as five-star accommodation, all meals including alternative dining, premium wine and beer served with lunch and dinner, wi-fi, a shore excursion in every port, 24-hour room service, unlimited specialty coffee, tea and bottled water, self-service laundry, complimentary spa access as well as gratuities.

It’s all backed by Viking’s Risk-Free Guarantee, offering guests the freedom to change or postpone their cruise up to 24 hours before departure*.
