Vik­ing ANZ breaks record

Cruise Weekly - - News -

VIK­ING Cruises re­cently broke new ground with Aussies and Ki­wis, host­ing the high­est proportion of lo­cal cruis­ers on a sin­gle sail­ing.

Vik­ing Orion was home to 476 Aus­tralian and New Zealand guests on its re­cent 23-day North Pa­cific Pas­sage be­tween Van­cou­ver and Tokyo via Alaska and Rus­sia - rep­re­sent­ing more than half the ship’s to­tal guest ca­pac­ity.

“This is the great­est num­ber of Aus­tralians and New Zealan­ders we have ever hosted on a sin­gle Vik­ing cruise and is tes­ta­ment to the ap­peal of our style of cruis­ing and our in­cred­i­bly unique itin­er­ar­ies,” said Vik­ing’s MD ANZ Michelle Black.

To cel­e­brate the Aussie/New Zealand mile­stone, our fel­low na­tives were treated to a spe­cial meet­ing with the ship’s crew, and a cock­tail party which in­cluded Vegemite snacks.
