Viking extends operations pause until september
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Viking extends its pause in river and ocean operation until September 30.
"In Europe, countries are beginning to open up, but the process will continue to be slow and cautious. Like you, I look forward to traveling again and I am encouraged by the scientific advancements being made around the world to overcome COVID-19," said Chairman Torstein Hage.
"We were the first cruise line to announce a temporary suspension of operations and have continued to evaluate the situation, responding accordingly. While restrictions related to COVID-19 are beginning to ease in some countries, travel remains particularly challenging in other regions of the world. Therefore, we have made the decision to extend our temporary suspension of operations through September 30, 2020," he added.
Guests will receive a potential 125 per cent cruise voucher, good for 24 months, including a pre/post cruise extension; upgrading the stateroom category; or even upgrading to business class travel.
