New Viking Star Introductory Photo Tour

Following the success of Viking River Cruises, a new cruise line was born this evening with the advent of Viking Ocean Cruises, and with it comes the reveal of the line’s first ship, the Viking Star (rendered above). Launching in 2015, the new endeavor offers quite the value proposition and looks to create a new category in the cruise industry.
