Are you a curious traveller with a true explorer's spirit wanting to plan your next cruise?

If so, come and join us at one of our complimentary Viking Explorer sessions where you can learn about the benefits of travelling with Viking and discover why we are known as The Thinking Person's Cruise.

We'll offer a series of one-hour information sessions throughout the day for you to choose from. Our river, ocean, and expedition sessions are perfect for anyone new to Viking, who wants to learn about the Viking way of cruising, our bestselling itineraries and what makes a cruise with us so special.

Celebrated author, lecturer, expedition leader and one of Australia's leading experts in the polar regions, David McGonigal, will be joining our expedition session to share his knowledge and personal experiences from more than 120 Antarctic expeditions.

Plus, if you'd like to learn about something specific; whether it be an itinerary, destination or ship, come along for a one-on-one with a Viking expert.

Simply choose the session that is of most interest to you and register your details — but be quick, space is limited and sessions will book out fast!
