Viking opens Bermuda cruises to UK passengers

Viking Cruises is opening new Bermuda sailings to UK travellers while expanding domestic summer departures.

The line, which restarted operations in May in England, Iceland and Malta, plans to announce further 2021 sailings as soon as government approvals are given.

Viking Star’s Portsmouth departures will be expanded with additional sailings on August 7, 14 and 21.

The eight-day Bermuda Escape voyages on Viking Orion are now available for UK guests on multiple sailings from the capital of Hamilton from August 13.

The itinerary includes two days at the island’s Royal Naval Dockyard

Fares start at £2,190 per person including return flights from London, Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Viking UK managing director Wendy Atkin-Smith said: “Based on consistently high levels of demand we have already opened availability on both ocean and river cruises through to 2023 but a lot of our UK guests are keen to start travelling as soon as it’s safe to do so this summer.

“We are delighted to be able to offer these additional UK sailings as well as the option to travel further afield to the colourful British island territory of Bermuda.

“Nearly 100% of our guests rated our domestic voyages in May and June this year as excellent or very good – and in fact several guests booked the same itinerary twice because they enjoyed it so much.

“A quarter of our guests booked another cruise with us straight away after enjoying their experience with Viking. British travellers are definitely ready to start exploring the world again, safe in the knowledge that Viking’s enhanced protocols are in place to protect our guests, our crew and the communities we visit.”

Viking chairman Torstein Hagen said: “We applaud the government of Bermuda for its collaboration and support as we have restarted our operations.

“Bermuda has been a favourite destination among our guests since our ocean ships began calling there in 2017, and we look forward to introducing even more Viking guests to the island’s history, culture and phenomenal natural beauty.”
