This weekend saw two items of news from Viking Ocean Cruises. First, the Viking Sun (above) sailed on the line’s first World Cruise, four months plus from Miami to London via the Pacific and Mediterranean. And second, Viking has firmed up orders for its seventh and eighth ships and confirmed options for two more that would bring its ocean fleet to ten ships. Elsewhere, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line reinstates its West Palm Beach to Freeport service this Saturday and has announced that its second ship, Grand Classica, will enter service in April. Finally, One Ocean Expeditions has announced a 56-night “circumnavigation” of Canada, tying its summer Canadian Arctic itineraries with the Akademik Ioffe with a Trans-Canada rail adventure from Vancouver to Halifax that uses Fairmont Hotels ashore.
