Viking Cruise Passengers to Discover Montserrat on October 20

The Montserrat Tourism Division is asking tour and taxi operators and crafters to be aware of the upcoming visit of the Viking Octantis on Thursday, October 20, 2022.

The ship, which was launched earlier this year, can accommodate 378 guests with a crew of 256.

Montserrat is day seven of the 23-night cruise from New York to Colombia, South America.

Roniqua Gerald, the Product Development Officer at the Montserrat Tourism Division told Discover Montserrat that about eight to ten vendors will be able to set up near the boardwalk behind Marine Village. As the tour begins once passengers leave the ship, vendors will only have a chance to interact with them on their return.

The ship is scheduled to be in port from 7AM to 5PM.

Viking offers luxury expedition cruises “built specifically to explore the world’s most remote destinations and allow you to immerse yourself in these regions,” their website notes.

The itinerary for Thursday’s visit has not been confirmed. However, Viking Cruises’ website offers other packages with the following experiences included:
