Viking Information Sessions

April 20, 2021 Events Calendar No Comments

Viking has announced the first dates for its 2021 Viking Explorer Sessions, commencing 12 May in Sydney followed by Brisbane (18 May), Melbourne (20 May), Gold Coast (10 June) and Adelaide ( 16 June).

For agents with clients considering a voyage with ‘The Thinking Person’s Cruise’ line, a Viking Explorer Session is the perfect showcase of Viking’s range of global cruise products, including ocean, river and expedition voyages.

Designed for new-to-Viking guests and seasoned Viking cruisers as well as their agents, the complimentary showcase offers seven one-hour information sessions throughout the day exploring river, ocean and expedition cruising. A dedicated expedition session featuring special guest speaker and Australia’s leading polar expert, David McGonigal, will offer a unique insight into the Viking expedition product launching in 2022. In addition, a What’s New session will provide full product updates for past Viking guests looking for their next Viking journey.

Bonus booking offers will be available for travellers on the day with a $100pp discount for bookings on itineraries of 15 days of less, and a $200pp discount for bookings on itineraries of 16 days or more, if booked within 7 days of the information session.

As an added incentive, agents who bring their clients to the sessions and then make a booking within 14 days will receive $100 of Rewards by Viking points, redeemable once clients have deposited.

“As the world starts to open, we know travellers are looking to plan and secure their next journey. Our 2021 Viking Explorer Sessions are the perfect opportunity to introduce clients to the Viking Difference on our ocean, river and expedition voyages across the globe,” said Michelle Black, MD Viking ANZ.

“Viking has continued to build new ships and develop new itineraries over the past 12 months. We are confident in a return to cruise in 2022, and these sessions are the perfect opportunity for agents and their clients to learn about our new product and look forward to the next cruise experience with Viking.

“Agents will also benefit from increasing their product knowledge of our expanded product portfolio and the opportunity to grow their business in these difficult times. Plus, it’s a valuable opportunity for our agents to reconnect with their clients and reforge those relationships”.
