Weekly Cruise Deals and Insider News – Aug 13, 2017

August Cruise Deals

This summer is all about exploration and adventure with new itineraries and exclusive destinations being the most important feature when booking a cruise vacation. Now more than ever people want once-in-a-lifetime experiences that engage the senses both at sea and on land.

Latest Cruise News

Virtual Balconies are redefining the world of cruising. Balcony cabins may still be the most popular choice among cruisers, but virtual balconies and portholes are making the once undesirable inside cabin more appealing. In 2011, Disney Cruise Line came along and changed everything with its signature Magical Portholes – a real-time digital display captured by camera’s outside the ship. Since then this brilliant idea has been imitated by Royal Caribbean International and Norwegian Cruise Line.

Coming Soon!

Viking Cruises is making waves across the luxury cruise line industry. By 2022, Viking Cruises will add eight ships to its ocean fleet far surpassing other competitors in award-winning fashion. Featured itineraries will include destinations like Cuba, South America and Alaska. Viking dominates Europe with its River Cruise brand and will soon have a pair of ships based permanently in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, with two more based in Alaska during the summer months. Meanwhile, one ship will be dedicated to World Cruising year-round.
