LOS ANGELES, CA – Viking Ocean Cruises today announced it took delivery of Viking Sea, the company’s second ship. The delivery ceremony took place today when the ship was presented at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona, Italy. On April 3, Viking Sea 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 5 on London’s Thames River in Greenwich. Following the christening, Viking Sea will spend her maiden season sailing itineraries in Scandinavia and the Baltic, as well as the Western and Eastern Mediterranean.

“What a remarkable 12 months this has been, launching our first ocean ship, taking delivery of our second ship and preparing for the final outfitting of our third ship. I am proud of everyone at Viking and Fincantieri for their contributions,” said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking Cruises. “As we take delivery of Viking Sea we now double Viking’s ocean capacity, which demonstrates how enthusiastic our guests are for destination-focused cruises. We look forward to further increasing our presence next year and the years after that.”

Classified by Cruise Critic as a “small ship,” the all-veranda Viking Sea is a sister ship to Viking Star, which launched in April 2015 to great customer and industry acclaim. In addition to being named “Best New Ocean Ship” in the Cruise Critic® 2015 Editors’ Picks Awards, Viking Star received three First Place Placements in the 6th Annual Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards. The ship was also rated number one in its category in Berlitz Cruising & Cruise Ships 2016. In 2015, Viking was also rated the highest of all river and ocean cruise lines in Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best” Awards.

Viking’s ocean ships have a gross tonnage of 47,800 tons, boast 465 cabins and accommodate 930 passengers. Viking Sea is the second of six ocean cruise ships on order. The third ship, Viking Sky, will be delivered in early 2017; the three remaining yet-to-be-named ships will be delivered in late 2017, 2018 and 2020, respectively.

Projetado para viajantes exigentes, o Viking oferece aos hóspedes “o cruzeiro da pessoa que pensa” como uma alternativa aos cruzeiros convencionais. A Viking Difference está oferecendo aos hóspedes cruzeiros extraordinariamente bem planejados que os aproximam das culturas do mundo. Os navios são pequenos para aproximar os hóspedes de seu destino, com mais tempo no porto, mais pernoites e menos dias no mar. A bordo, os hóspedes encontrarão espaços escandinavos serenos, onde cada quarto é bonito e funcional, silencioso e cheio de luz. Os navios com todas as varandas significam que os hóspedes vivenciam todos os dias uma vista nova e ampla. Com a maioria das refeições ao ar livre no mar, apresentando cozinha regional e clássicos americanos sempre disponíveis, os hóspedes do Viking podem realmente jantar em seu destino. O foco no enriquecimento cultural traz experiências imersivas em terra e a bordo. E apenas o The Viking Way traz aos visitantes roteiros que apresentam experiências de Vida Local, Mundo de Trabalho e Acesso Privilegiado.

Além disso, o Viking Inclusive Cruising oferece uma experiência de navio pequeno com um grande valor - com cada tarifa de cruzeiro incluindo uma cabine com varanda, excursões em terra em cada porto de escala, todas as refeições a bordo e todas as taxas portuárias e impostos do governo. Os hóspedes também desfrutam de muitas comodidades gratuitas como parte de sua tarifa, incluindo: cerveja e vinho com serviço de almoço e jantar; reservas de jantares premium; Wi-fi; lavanderia self-service; acesso à Suite Termal do Spa LivNordic; e serviço de quarto 24 horas - um valor de mais de US $ 2,400 por casal para um cruzeiro médio.
