Viking Cruises has released a new online video highlighting the inaugural float out ceremony for its first ocean ship – the 930-passenger Viking Star – set to debut in early 2015. The traditional ceremony took place at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard outside Venice, Italy.
As many as 50 vessels have been trapped in ice in the Baltic Sea, with a number of passenger ferries among those stranded. Some have been stranded for several days, with ice breaking vessels approaching to offer assistance.
MICROS Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: MCRS), a leading provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality industry, is pleased to announce that Viking Line Abp is deploying myfidelio.net in conjunction with Viking Line’s cruise booking system to handle cruise and partner hotel reservations.
