(12 p.m. EDT) — Cruise Critic members can now enjoy exclusive Meet & Mingle events on Viking Ocean Cruises, following a new partnership with the line. The events, which include a complimentary cocktail party, will be offered on every sailing.
The Meet & Mingle program allows attendees to chat face to face with other community members, many of whom they have been in contact prior to a sailing through the Cruise Critic Roll Call forums. These events also give members a chance to meet the ship’s staff, who help to run and organize the events.
Viking Ocean Cruises is the seventh line to participate in the Meet & Mingle program, following Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Azamara Club Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Silversea Cruises and, most recently, Carnival Cruise Line.
Anyone can sign up for Cruise Critic’s online community, which is free and easy to join. Additional member benefits include chats with cruise line executives and a members-only deals newsletter.
