Viking Expands Nile River Experiences with New Ship, Viking Osiris, and Pre-cruise Packages

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Just one year after debuting on the Nile River with Viking Ra, Viking River Cruises has announced the launch of a new ship scheduled to set sail in 2020. Viking Osiris will hit the water with a maximum of 82 guests, featuring the clean, classic design for which Viking’s river ships are known.

Along with expanded capacity in the region, Viking has introduced new pre-cruise extensions to immerse guests in ancient Egyptian history. As a part of the Pharaohs & Pyramids itinerary, guests will now have the option of two, 5-day pre-cruise land tours! Both tours begin in the UK, learning from an expert Egyptologist and taking exclusive excursions to see relics such as a 3,000-year-old sarcophagus and artifacts from King Tut’s tomb. As is always the case with Viking, these aren’t just regular tours—each tour on your pre-cruise extension is guided, and some, like the British Museum, allow Viking guests in before normal operating hours!
