Cruise ship Viking Star makes her maiden visit to London

Viking Star

Cruise ship Viking Star made an early morning arrival to Greenwich today, as part of her maiden voyage. With a gross tonnage of only 47,800 tons the Viking Star is officially classed as a ‘small ship’ and is dwarfed by recent new cruise launches, but her size enables the ship to reach the heart of great cities such as London. Viking Star leaves tomorrow and will be christened in Bergen, Norway, on Sunday. The ship will make a return visit to Greenwich in October.

In a world of ever increasing cruise ships, the 930 passenger Star is one of the biggest cruise ships to navigate the Thames, however this remains small in comparison to other mega ocean cruise liners.
