Viking orders another Seine River Longship

Fifth purpose-built ship to enter service in 2025

Viking has confirmed it will add a fifth Longship to operate on the Seine River in 2025. The purpose-built vessel will sail the company’s eight-day Paris and the Heart of Normandy itinerary alongside Viking Fjorgyn, Viking Kari, Viking Radgrid and Viking Skaga, all brand new in 2022.

The vessels are designed specifically to navigate the Seine River and bring guests to the heart of Paris, just a short walk from the Eiffel Tower.

“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.”

Hosting 168 guests in 84 staterooms, the Viking Longships on the Seine River feature an Aquavit Terrace and a wide variety of stateroom choices, as well as Viking’s signature Scandinavian design aesthetic. The vessels feature a hybrid propulsion system with batteries and are also equipped for shore power to reduce reliance on fuel while in port. Onboard solar panels further contribute to the ships’ energy efficiency.
