Viking Cruises officially announced the christening of their debut ocean vessel, the 930-guest Viking Star, in Bergen, Norway, on May 17.
The newest cruise ship heralds a new chapter for Viking and for ocean cruising as they expand their fleet from the world’s rivers to the world’s seas.
Viking Star’s 2015 voyages will explore grand cities as well as discover the rich and enduring cultures of smaller “collector ports” long overlooked by travelers.
Viking Cruises has designed her itineraries to help maximize time exploring cities like Stockholm, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Venice, Rome and Barcelona and minimize the days at sea. Onboard enlightening lectures, cultural enrichment and ample al fresco dining keep your destination close at hand.
