Marvels of the Med in two Viking small-ship cruises

For many, the Mediterranean quiet season – Autumn & Winter—is an ideal time to sail the seas between Europe and Africa. The bustle of iconic cities slows down and, with fewer crowds, visitors are able to explore historic landmarks and hidden local treasures at an easy-going pace.

Viking’s 15-day Ancient Mediterranean Antiquities from Rome to Istanbul (or vice versa) is now on sale, priced from $5,445pp for selected quiet season departures when booked before 30 June 2022.

Delve into Greek and Roman history on this enriching voyage where East meets West in Istanbul, marvel at the ruins of ancient Troy, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, enjoy two nights in iconic Athens and the cultural splendour of southern Italy.

And the cruise line’s 8-day Iconic Western Mediterranean voyage from Barcelona to Rome (or vice versa) is now on sale, priced from $2,995pp for selected quiet season departures when booked before 30 June 2022.

France’s famed southern coast and Italy’s Renaissance treasures take centre stage on this Mediterranean sojourn. Immerse yourself in Catalonian and Tuscan art, architecture and history.

The fares include guided shore excursions, five star accommodation, all on board meals including alternative dining venues, wine and beer with lunch and dinner, unlimited Wi-Fi, 24-hour specialty tea, coffee and bottled water, access to the state-of-the-art Nordic spa, self-service laundry and all tipping.

Plus, when you book before 31 May 2022 you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that only Viking’s Risk-Free Guarantee can deliver with the flexibility to change cruise dates up until 14 days before departure.

Viking Ocean Cruises boasts a fleet of new, all-veranda, state-of-the-art ocean ships. Each identical sister ship carries only 930 guests and is engineered at a scale that allows direct access into most ports.

Classified by Cruise Critic as “small ships,” the fleet features understated elegance and modern Scandinavian design.
