Built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Viking Orion is the fifth cruise ship constructed for Viking Ocean Cruises.
Viking Orion falls within the small-sized vessel market segment.
Highly experienced naval architects and engineers designed the ship, including a team of interior designers from Smc Design in London and Rottet Studio in Los Angeles. It features a modern Scandinavian-inspired design characterized by sophisticated yet functional elegance. In addition to the cabins, each with a private balcony, the vessel also features spacious suites with expansive views, two swimming pools, one of which is an infinity pool located at the stern of the ship, as well as a wellness area designed according to the wellness philosophy typical of Nordic countries, with a sauna and snow cave.
Viking’s units are constructed according to the latest navigation regulations and equipped with cutting-edge safety systems, including the ‘Safe return to port’ feature. They fit highly efficient engines, hydrodynamics, and optimized hulls for maximum efficiency and reduced consumption. These ships employ systems that minimize exhaust gas emissions and comply with the most stringent environmental standards.
