Viking Cruises cancels remaining 2020 program
After becoming the first cruise line to cease operations in March, Viking has cancelled its remaining 2020 cruise schedule.
Recent events have shown us that the recovery from this pandemic will be sporadic, and the ability to travel freely across borders remains some time away. Fortunately, the U.S. State Department has lifted some travel advisories for Americans, but many countries are still limiting tourists. As keen as we may be to get back to exploring, for now, international travel must wait. I have said before that we will only sail again when it is safe to do so. We are a private, closely-held company, which means we do not have to rush the decision to return to service," said Torstein Hagen, chairman of the company.
Viking gives a 125 percent Future Cruise Voucher to booked travelers.
