The voyages will take place on Viking Ocean’s new Viking Sky and its soon-to-debut sister ship Viking Sun. The vessels hold 930 passengers.

Two-year-old Viking Ocean has made Scandinavia-focused voyages one of the cornerstones of its schedule. It already operates 14-night summer sailings between Bergen, Norway and London that center on the coast of Norway. Stops in Norway as well as Sweden and Denmark also are a significant part of the line’s signature, 14-night Baltic itinerary called Viking Homelands.

Viking Ocean also recently unveiled plans for voyages along the Norwegian coast in the winter, when the Northern Lights are visible. That’s a rarity in the cruise world.

Launched in 2015, Viking Ocean is a sister line to 20-year-old Viking River Cruises. It currently operates three ships with five more on order.
