Viking will welcome a fifth Viking Longship to its fleet in 2025.
The ship is yet to be named but is designed to operate on the Seine River in France, like its sister ships Viking Fjorgyn, Viking Kari, Viking Radgrid and Viking Skaga, which debuted in 2022.
The new ship will sail the brand’s eight-day ‘Paris and the Heart of Normandy’ roundtrip, which will take guests from Paris to Giverny, Rouen and Normandy.
“France continues to be among the most popular destinations for our guests, and we are pleased to expand our fleet on the Seine River to meet that demand,” said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking. “With our exclusive docking location at Port de Grenelle, even more guests will soon be able to explore the ‘City of Light’ in the Viking way.”
The new vessel will accommodate 168 guests in 84 staterooms and an Aquavit Terrace. It will have a hybrid propulsion system with batteries and onboard solar panels, as well as shore power capacity.
