Viking in our waters

VIKING Ocean Cruise's fourth cruise liner Viking Sun brought with it more than 900 visitors when it made it's first call to Fiji last week.

The ship decked at Suva's Kings Wharf for a few hours allowing its guests to visit and experience Suva City.

MS Viking Sun Captain Atle Knutsen said, at Viking, they believed travel should be done more than just a trip.

"It should be a doorway to cultural insights and personal enrichment," Capt Knutsen said.

"That is why our intimate, inclusive cruise itineraries are designed to help our guests explore nuances of their destination; its food, culture, people and customs.

"This is our first call to Fiji, our cruise trips have been going on for three years," he said.

"We started in 2015, our first ship was the Viking Star, and then we had the Viking Sea, the Viking Sky and now the Viking Sun.

"We had to find a way to sail across the Pacific and show our guests just how beautiful the Fiji Islands are.

"Six more of our ships are coming to visit your beautiful country as we are planning to expand and because our ships are now seemingly popular, we will definitely be back in Suva."

Expand your horizons on this comfortable, award-winning ship, intimate and thoughtfully created by experienced nautical architects and designers to enrich your interaction with your destination in every way.
