Viking Polaris

Viking Polaris cruise ship is a newbuild vessel part of Viking Ocean's fleet. Octantis and the sistership Viking Octantis are scheduled for inauguration in 2021-Q2 (Octantis) and 2022-Q2 (Polaris). As the "Viking Ocean" brand specializes in all-inclusive seagoing cruises, the two new ships will be grouped in a separate fleet under the new luxury travel brand "Viking Expeditions".

Viking's new expedition ships are Norway-flagged, smaller-sized (GT 30150 tons) and with reduced passenger capacity (378 each, plus 260 crew/staff) in comparison to Viking Ocean's liners, each carrying 930 passengers (plus 465 crew/staff). Both vessels are constructed by the Norwegian shipbuilder VARD (subsidiary of the Italian company Fincantieri). Vessel's hull and superstructure are assembled t the shipyard in Tulcea Romania, then towed to VARD Soviknes Shipyard (Alesund Norway) for outfitting.
