We thank the Maltese government for their support and enthusiasm in getting us back on track, said Torstein Hagen, President of Viking. Malta is a fantastic destination with an ancient history, a rich culture and a central location in the Mediterranean Sea. We launched flights to Malta in 2016 and look forward to welcoming our guests again this summer to some of the most historically significant and naturally beautiful areas of the Mediterranean, both in the Maltese archipelago and along the Croatian coast and around the Greek islands.
The new Malta and the Jewels of the Adriatic itinerary includes an overnight stop in Valletta, then sails to Montenegro and Croatia, with stops in Kotor, Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar and Sibenik, before returning to the Maltese archipelago, with a stop in Gozo and return to Valletta.
The Malta and Greek Islands Discovery Tour includes an overnight stay in Valletta. You will then sail to Greece, calling at Kalamata, Athens, Santorini, Rhodes and Souda Bay, before returning to Valletta.
Due to high demand, Viking is also adding additional departure dates for its flights around Iceland and Bermuda this summer.
The airline is actively developing additional Welcome Back routes to a number of other destinations, with the aim of announcing new flights in 2021, once government approval is granted.
Viking Venus, delivered in April 2021, is the shipping company’s newest deep-sea vessel and will be launched on the 17th. May 2021 in England by iconic British TV presenter and patron Anne Diamond.
Viking’s health and safety program was developed in collaboration with an international team of medical advisors, including Raquel C. Bono, M.D., Viking’s Chief Health Officer.
Dr. Bono is a certified trauma surgeon and retired Vice Admiral of the United States Navy Medical Corps. Most recently, he led the Washington State Health and Medical System’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the laboratory installed on every Viking seagoing vessel, all guests and crew members undergo a quick and easy non-invasive saliva PCR test daily. New air purification technology has also been installed on all Viking ships, which always had independent ventilation systems for all guest cabins. And additional health checks, decontamination, and physical spacing measures provide additional protection for Viking’s guests and crew during all phases of the voyage.
