Viking Cruises Now Offers Record-Breaking 8-Month Long Cruise

Cruising isn’t for everyone. For some vacationers, they can’t wait to get off the ship at the end of a 3-day cruise. Fort others—for those who seriously love cruising—even a 10-day cruise isn’t long enough, and they often book their next trip before ever getting off the ship. If you’re a die-hard cruise fan then Viking Cruises has something you’re going to love!

Now you can book a 245-day cruise and visit 113 ports in 59 countries!

That officially sets a world record for the longest continuous cruise. The ship is set to leave London on August 31, 2019, and the fares start at $92,000. If you really want to live it up for eight months, consider booking the Owner’s Suite for a price tag of $269,000.

The journey starts in London and then heads across the Atlantic to Canada. From there, the ship will make stops in multiple ports along the east coast of the United States, throughout the Caribbean and all the way down to Brazil. Next, the ship will sail to New Zealand and Australia before heading up to Asia, the Middle East and eventually, back to England.

If eight months at sea seems a little too daunting, you can also purchase packages for about half the time. The “Viking World Treasures” segment will last 127 days and take passengers from London to L.A. If you’re more interested in the Asia and Middle East ports, the “Viking World Wonders” segment will take you from L.A. to London in 119 days. The half-trips will start at $47,995 and $45,995, respectively.

The cruise ship is the Viking Sun, which can carry 930 passengers and has plenty of amenities to keep you busy for eight months, including nine decks full of bars, restaurants, a fitness center, movie theater, pool, and spa.

The price tags include your airfare from your destination to London, as well as your return trip from London back to your hometown. If this record-breaking cruise seems like something you’d like to do, book before the end of the year to earn yourself $2,000 in shipboard credit and $4,000 in excursion credit.
