EWING, N.J., April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cruise Critic®, the world's leading cruise reviews site and online cruise community, has announced a partnership with Viking Ocean Cruises to offer its members access to exclusive onboard events.
This is the seventh cruise line to partner with Cruise Critic for its popular Meet & Mingle events. As part of the partnership, Viking will host Cruise Critic members for a complimentary cocktail party on every sailing.
"The excitement around Viking's new ocean vessels led to a demand from our members for our Meet & Mingle events onboard," explained Mike Ewing, General Manager of Cruise Critic. "We're happy to be able to extend this special benefit to our members on Viking's ocean-going vessels, not only as a way for our members to meet each other, but also to offer the exclusive opportunity to interact with the ship's officers and crew."
Viking Ocean Cruises joins six other lines which partner with Cruise Critic to offer exclusive Meet & Mingle events for Cruise Critic members. The other lines include: Silversea Cruises, Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Royal Caribbean International and, most recently, Carnival Cruise Line.
To attend a Cruise Critic Meet & Mingle, cruisers need to visit the Community section on CruiseCritic.com, and register with Cruise Critic for their upcoming sailing date. Both Cruise Critic membership and Meet & Mingle events are free.
