Viking Cruises will make its Australian debut early next year as its newest ocean ship, Viking Sun, heads down under.
Viking Sun will visit during February en route from Miami to London as part of an epic 141-day cruise covering five continents, 35 countries and 66 ports.
The cruise will visit seven ports across Australia including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, the Whitsunday Islands, Cairns, Thursday Island and Darwin before heading to Asia.
And come December 2018, fellow Viking ship Viking Spirit will call Sydney home for three months.
Cruising between Sydney and Auckland, its 15-day Australia and New Zealand cruise will cover nine ports of call including Melbourne and Hobart before crossing the Tasman and stopping at Wellington and Napier.
A second itinerary launching in November, 2018, will explore Komodo and the Australian coast from Bali to Sydney over 17 days.
