Vik­ing at­tempts Guin­ness world record

Cruise Weekly - - News -

VIK­ING Cruises em­barked from London on its Ul­ti­mate Word Cruise last Sat, a mam­moth 245-day sail­ing that it hopes will set a Guin­ness word record for the long­est-ever con­tin­u­ous cruise.

The voy­age on the Vik­ing Sun will span six con­ti­nents, 51 coun­tries and 111 ports, with an of­fi­cial Guin­ness ad­ju­di­ca­tor to con­firm the suc­cess­ful at­tempt with a cer­tifi­cate pre­sen­ta­tion.

“Our Ul­ti­mate World Cruise is the most ex­ten­sive itin­er­ary avail­able in the in­dus­try, nearly dou­ble the length of our pre­vi­ous world cruise itin­er­ar­ies - I am pleased to of­fer such a unique ex­pe­ri­ence for our guests,” said Vik­ing’s Chair­man Torstein Ha­gen.
