Viking Star Delivered

March 31, 2015 By: Newswire

Viking Ocean Cruises has taken delivery of the company's first oceangoing ship, the Viking Star.

The delivery ceremony took place on March 28 when the ship was presented at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard outside of Venice, Italy. On April 11, Viking Star will set sail from Istanbul and will make her way through the Mediterranean and into the Atlantic on her way to be officially christened on May 17 in Bergen, Norway.

“This has been a remarkable journey, and I am grateful to everyone at Viking and Fincantieri who has worked tirelessly to turn our vision into reality,” said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking Cruises. “With Viking Star’s maiden voyage and christening now within sight, we are ready to bring our destination-focused experiences to ocean cruising.”

The all-veranda Viking Star has 465 cabins and will accommodate 930 passengers. It is engineered at a scale that allows direct access into most ports in order to promote an easy embarkation and debarkation. Light-filled with modern Scandinavian décor, the ship was designed by the same interior design team responsible for the fleet of Viking Longships. Viking Star is one of three ocean cruise ships on order. The remaining two ships, Viking Sea and Viking Sky, are currently under construction.

Viking Ocean Cruises guests will enjoy itineraries with a complimentary excursion in each port and an onboard cultural enrichment program that includes academic lecturers, local speakers and interactive demonstrations.
