Last night at the Beverly Hills Hilton, Viking River Cruises officially rebranded themselves as Viking Cruises as they enter the cruise market with their first ocean going cruise ship in 2015.
Viking Cruise’s new ocean going venture is an expansion of Viking’s current river cruise program. With a new, custom built cruise ship, Viking will allow guests to reach more ports in traditional Viking style. The first ship to be launched for the new brand is the Viking Star, which will sail her maiden voyage in 2015. The Viking Star will carry around 900 guests in 465 staterooms with 15 finely appointed dining experiences as well as many other unique features to the Viking brand.
For a complete overview of the new Viking Star, make sure to watch the tour video above.
