Viking Sun is listed as the world’s longest continuous cruise that will sail around the world in 245 days. The cost for this 8-month long journey will be around $90,499, which seems quite fair price for a such a long and luxurious experience.
The Norwegian-owned cruise will sail from Greenwich in August, it will dock on 113 ports in 59 countries located in all the continents except Antarctica. The passenger limit is 930; its first two stops are going to Ireland and Norway before crossing the Atlantic to Greenland.
Business-class fares are included in the flight for people flying into London and all meals, which can be enjoyed in any of the eight restaurants.
This cruise is described as the ‘thinking person’s cruise’ and for a good reason, there are going to be lectured on history and the art, classical musicians, and cookery classes on board.
‘Calm Scandinavian spaces’ and privileged access to ‘experiences’ at various destinations is also offered. On board, there are going to be two pool and a thermal spa as well.
The largest cabin has already been booked and which cost a staggering amount of $262,538 for a single person and twice for a couple.
The trip will come to its end with a passage through the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean, then Spain and Portugal, then back to the United Kingdom.
This is not the first trip of Viking Sun but it is certainly the longest; the previous two trips were half the distance of the one that is set for this year.
Viking chairman Torstein Hagen said: ‘Our World Cruises offer guests the rare opportunity to unpack once and explore dozens of the best destinations on Earth, at a value that is unprecedented in the travel industry.’
