Viking continues to focus on the City of Lights by adding another purpose-built Viking Longship to its Seine River line-up, which will be ready in 2025. This newest ship will join the young fleet already plying the Seine: the Viking Fjorgyn, Viking Kari, Viking Radgrid and Viking Skaga. All will depart from the Port de Grenelle, an exclusive docking location within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower.
“The Paris and the Heart of Normandy itinerary continues to be popular with our guests,” said Torstein Hagen, chairman of the line, in a press statement. “We are excited to expand our offerings in this region and welcome even more guests on board to explore this incredible part of the world rich in history and culture.”
More About the Viking Seine Longships
For the sustainable travel interested parties on your client list, the line’s Seing Longships use hybrid technology to reduce their reliance on fuel when in port, using large-scale batteries instead, plus they have onboard solar panels. The vessels themselves have only 84 staterooms for 168 passengers; all their suites have two full-size rooms with a veranda and a French balcony.
The ships take your clients on the 8-day Paris & the Heart of Normandy itineraries that include visits to painter Claude Monet’s garden and farmhouse, Joan of Arc’s hometown of Rouen, the American Military Cemetary and World War II beaches in Normandy and more.
