Join the Viking Explorers Blog as we revisit our time aboard the Viking Expeditions, NEW Viking Octantis. She is the first of two luxury expedition ship’s from Viking. We cruise aboard her during her inaugural cruise on Viking’s Caribbean Connections itinerary. This amazing nine-night sailing began in Barbados and ended in New York City and was a true adventure.
The Viking Octantis is gorgeous expedition ship. The amount of beautiful artwork and the Scandinavian interior design only impressed me more and more as I explored this beauty.
Here are some of her measurements, to name a few. She has a total guest capacity of 378 and 261 total crew members. The ship is 30,150 gross tons, 77 feet wide and 665 feet long.
Viking Octantis is also a 100% polar class ship that allows safe travel to Antarctica and the Artic. The ship also offers some of the highest space-to-guest ratios, being one of the most spacious expedition ships afloat. During this highlight reel, you’ll see many different moments captured during this amazing expedition voyage in the heart of the Caribbean.
