A New Chapter of Ocean Cruising
The brand new oceangoing ship Viking Star is the first of her kind for Viking Cruises. The cruise line that is known for its river cruising ships has now entered into ocean cruising to offer something new to their guests. Thousands gathered in Bergen, Norway as they christened Viking’s newest ship with the first-of-its-kind show providing a wonderful floating concert and fireworks display.
“We believe the arrival of Viking Star signals a new era in destination-focused cruising, and I could not be more proud that she will call my favorite city in the world ‘home,’” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking Cruises. “This is a ship that was built for exploration and designed with our Scandinavian heritage in mind, and our guests will experience it from the moment they step on board.”
The 930 passenger intimate ship is designed to bring her guests closer to the heart of their destinations. On board, you will find that all staterooms are luxurious verandas making for a great view of the ports on your itinerary. The inside of the ship is also quite elegant and thoughtfully designed to deliver a life-enriching experience that stays with you forever. From the Atrium, to The Living Room and Explorers’ Lounge, there sure is to be a place to relax and unwind for everyone.
