Viking made a name for itself with its popular river cruises, and now they’ve brought their expertise to the ocean with their first Ocean cruise ship, the Viking Star.
In this inaugural year, the Viking Star has been named the Best New Ocean Ship receiving a 5 star rating.
Viking Star an All Veranda Ship
The Viking Star is just the first of three ocean ships under construction for Viking Ocean Cruises which launched earlier this year. The two additional sister ships, Viking Sea, and Viking Sky, will be delivered in 2016 and 2017.
In the meantime, the Viking Star is already in demand with its comfortably elegant décor and spacious airy accommodations including things like oversized showers and a veranda in every room.
This intimate, all-veranda ship features a variety of staterooms and lavish amenities offering something for everyone’s travel style.
Every Room a Veranda Room
One popular amenity aboard the Viking Star is that every room has a veranda. With five types of Veranda Staterooms to choose from, private verandas start at 270 sq. ft. with rooms featuring the comfort of king-size beds, over-sized showers and LCD TVs.
The ship’s 14 Explorer Suites feature a two-room layout and enjoy sweeping views from a private wraparound veranda while the Deluxe Veranda room features a 46 sq. ft. veranda and the penthouse and junior penthouse verandas are 69 and 58 sq. ft.
Pools, Spa, and More
Viking ocean cruise ships offer plenty to do including two pool choices. The main pool is equipped with a retractable dome for swimming at any season, and a glass-backed infinity pool off the stern.
Dining choices include multiple restaurants and food choices serving a variety of global cuisines and regional specialties. The spa facilities stay with Viking’s Nordic heritage and offer holistic wellness treatments from centuries-old Nordic traditions.
Viking’s Ocean fleet is designed to access most ports directly so guests can take advantage of easy, efficient embarkation and disembarkation. For more information contact [email protected] or call toll free at 1-855-884-5464.
