Viking has opened bookings for its newest Nile River ship, the Viking Sobek. Set to debut in 2025, the ship will join the cruise line's growing Egyptian fleet, becoming the sixth ship to sail the line's popular 12-day Pharaohs & Pyramids itinerary. Additionally, the line has opened up 2026 departure dates for the rest of the entire Nile River fleet as well.
"We are very pleased with the continued interest in Egypt and are proud to be the only western company to build, own, and operate ships on the Nile," said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking. "We look forward to introducing even more curious travelers to the rich history, culture, and antiquities of Egypt in the coming years."
Hosting 82 guests in 41 staterooms, Viking Sobek will be an identical sister ship to Viking Osiris, Viking Aton, and Viking Hathor, which debuts next year.
