A Pixelled Ship upon a Pixelled Ocean!
It’s an image, not a photo, of Viking Star – for the moment just a “painted ship upon a painted ocean”. When launched, in 2015. she will be the first ocean cruise vessel in the Viking fleet – marking a new step for a cruise line currently known only for river cruising.
Last year (2013) Viking River Cruises made a splash by christening 10 new Viking Longships – river cruise vessels – on the same day. Something of a pointer to the remarkable success of this company founded only 15 years before.
Owner, Torstein Hagen, wants to ensure this venture into ocean cruising is every bit as successful. Mr Hagen has decided that Viking Star will ensure passengers have a luxury experience by offering a beautiful ship with top-class amenities and cabins, all covered by all-inclusive fares – including an excursion in every port, specialty dining options, wi-fi service and wine, beer and soft drinks at lunch and dinner. Taking a look at the cabin options we see that passengers will have a generous allocation of space whatever category they choose. You could say that there is less cabin choice than in other cruise lines… Since there are no inside cabins, and no ocean-view cabins the choice is limited to veranda cabins. But this is not a negative! And although you may always have been happy not to “swing a cat” as the sailor’s saying goes, when aboard Viking Star passengers should always have enough space as the smallest cabin size is a generous 270 square feet. So there it is – Viking Star: a new luxury-level contender for your 2015 cruise holiday!
