London GB: World’s Longest Cruise Will Be For Almost A Year PDF Print E-mail


The Viking Sun set sail recently from England along with its happy passengers for 245 days. There are scheduled port visits in Scandinavia, the Caribbean, South America, South Pacific, Australia and Asia.

Your travel4seniors.com editor recalls his year-long cruise in 1944-45 from San Francisco, including scenic stops at the Philippine Islands of Leyte, Samar and Luzon. Except that some angry guys were trying to kill me, I enjoyed most of the cruise as a 19-year-old crewman on a World War 2 U.S. Navy troop transport.

It included free meals, lodging and $150 a month spending money. Incidentally, the Viking Sun voyage fees start at a mere $92,990 per person, including free meals and shore excursions.
