Viking will introduce four new Seine River Ships on its eight-day Paris & The Heart of Normandy itinerary on the Seine River in 2020. Expanding its current France river cruise fleet will be the purpose-built Viking Kari, Viking Radgrid, Viking Skaga and Viking Fjorgyn that will have a capacity of 168 passengers.
Featuring identical interior design, staterooms and common areas as the award-winning Viking Longships (which accommodate an average of 190 passengers), the four 135-metre-long Seine Ships have customised hulls and engines designed for the Seine. The Viking Seine Ships will be able to take guests deeper into Paris, docking in the centre of the city at Port de Grenelle, located a short distance from the Eiffel Tower.
“At Viking, we pride ourselves on offering a cruise experience that lets the destinations we visit be the star of the show, so we are thrilled to be taking our guests deeper into the heart of Paris – the global centre for art, fashion, food and culture,” said Michelle Black, Managing Director of Viking ANZ.
“Every detail of Viking’s Seine Ships is designed to enhance and enrich the travel experience, so that guests can explore all that makes France so compelling. Like our state-of-the-art fleet of Longships, Seine Ships will offer guests unprecedented levels of comfort, including full verandas, as well as the largest suites and the most al-fresco dining on France’s rivers,” she said.
