Port Everglades adds another jewel to its crown: Viking

A fireboat welcomes Viking Orion to Port Everglades on Wednesday
Port Everglades welcomed a new cruise line — Viking — to its roster today with the arrival of Viking Orion, and Viking Star is to begin sailing from there Nov. 6.

Both 930-passenger ships will offer a variety of itineraries to the Caribbean and Central America through 2022.

'Viking's arrival diversifies Port Everglades' fleet with a new brand that focuses on history, culture and exploration for curious travelers,' Port Everglades Chief Executive and Port Director Jonathan Daniels said. 'We are honored that Viking has selected Port Everglades for their 2021-2022 winter cruise season and wish them great success in the Florida-Caribbean market.'
