Viking Ocean Cruises

Viking River Cruises, known for its river cruise-tours in Europe, Asia and Egypt, announced on May 17 that it is launching an ocean cruise line, Viking Ocean Cruises.

Viking placed orders for two 928-pax ships, with options for more. The first, Viking Star, is scheduled to begin sailing in May 2015, with itineraries to Scandinavia, the Baltic Sea and the Western and Eastern Mediterranean area. The mid-size ship will be designed to have access to most ports.

I have sailed Viking River cruises in China and in the Netherlands and am looking forward to a seagoing experience with them. Anyone else interested?
