Sun arrives in rain
HOBART welcomed Viking Cruises’ Viking Sun today, hosting the ship on day 160 of her 245day Ultimate World Cruise.
The Tasmanian port is the first of seven Australian destinations Viking Sun will visit on the itinerary, which the line is hoping will set the Guinness World Record for the “longest continuous passenger cruise”.
There are only 56 passengers of the 930 guests on board who will journey the entire 245 days, while others will travel on different halves of the itinerary, swapping over in Los Angeles.
Viking Sun will call in at Sydney, Brisbane, The Whitsundays, Cairns, Thursday Island and Darwin in her Australian leg of the mammoth journey, before sailing on through Asia.
