Viking StarClassified as a “small ship,” the new 928-passenger all-veranda Viking Star is engineered at a scale that allows direct access into most ports, so guests have easy and efficient embarkation and debarkation. The ship’s understated elegance and modern Scandinavian design is crafted for maximum guest comfort. Highlighted features include:
All Veranda Staterooms: Guests can choose from
five stateroom categories, starting from a 270 sq. ft. veranda

private verandas as well as the most amenities and privileges of any
Two Pool Choices: In addition to the Main Pool with a retractable dome permitting any-season swimming, Viking Star
features one of the only infinity pools at sea, allowing passengers to
swim surrounded by their destination in a glass-backed pool cantilevered
off the stern.
The Spa: In keeping with Viking’s Nordic heritage, The Spa onboard Viking Star
is designed with the holistic wellness philosophy of Scandinavia in
mind—from the centuries-old tradition of the sauna to a “snow grotto”
where snowflakes gently descend from the ceiling through chilled air.
Explorers’ Lounge and Wintergarden: Spaces
designed to facilitate mingling and storytelling, the two-deck
Explorers’ Lounge at the bow of the ship is the perfect spot for taking

meals prepared with fresh, local ingredients. Furthermore, with multiple
choices for outdoor seating during meals, Viking Star offers more al
fresco dining than any other ship.
Enriching Entertainment:, Connecting passengers to their destinations through authentic experiences is central to Viking Cruises, and Viking Star’s
onboard venues include a dramatic three-deck atrium where passengers
can enjoy musicians playing regional and classical music; the Star
Theater, home of enrichment lectures from scholars and experts; an
onboard cooking school where guests can learn local specialties; and the
Viking Piano Lounge, where guests can relax, mingle, and exchange
stories after a day of exploring.
Sustainable Features: Designed with the environment in mind, Viking Star
features energy-efficient hybrid engines, a hydro-dynamically optimized
streamlined hull and bow for maximum fuel efficiency, onboard solar
panels, and equipment that minimizes exhaust pollution and meets the
strictest environmental regulations.
