Viking to restart Med cruises with Malta sailings

Viking will restart operations in the Mediterranean with new ocean voyages from Malta for vaccinated guests this summer.

The new cruises are part of Viking’s Welcome Back collection and will see Viking Venus and Viking Sea (pictured) sailing from the Maltese capital of Valletta between July and early October.

They will offer two different 11-day roundtrip itineraries in the Mediterranean.

Elsewhere, Viking is adding more dates this summer for its Welcome Back voyages around Iceland, including sailings available to UK guests, and Bermuda.

Guests on the new Malta & Adriatic Jewels itinerary will sail to Montenegro and Croatia, calling at Kotor, Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar and Šibenik, before returning to the Maltese archipelago, with a stop in Gozo and finally back to Valletta.

The new Malta & Greek Isles Discovery itinerary will visit Kalamata, Athens, Santorini, Rhodes and Souda Bay, before returning to Valletta.

Viking Venus will be named in England on May 17 by ceremonial godmother and broadcaster Anne Diamond.

Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking, said: “We began calling in Malta in 2016 and look forward to welcoming guests back to some of the most historically significant and naturally beautiful areas of the Med – in both the Maltese archipelago, as well as along the Croatian coast, and around Greek islands this summer.”

The Welcome Back ocean voyages in England, Iceland and Bermuda begin later this month.
