Viking claims it has exclusive access to some ports in China on what it is calling ‘first of their kind’ 10 to 20-day cruise itineraries.
The new voyages will operate from September to November on the Chinese-flagged Viking Yi Dun—formerly the Viking Sun.
The 10-day ‘China Discovery’ itinerary will sail from Shanghai to Hong Kong with calls in Zhoushan, Dongtou, Pingtan, Xiamen and Shenzhen.
Viking Chairman Torstein Hagen said: “We are proud that Viking will be the first to operate domestic sailings in China for international travellers.
“Our guests are curious travellers who are interested in experiences that broaden their mind—and China, with one of the richest cultures in the world, has been inspiring travellers for centuries.”
