Viking Orion Christened and Contains a Difference

Viking Ocean Cruises' fifth ship, Viking Orion, was christened yesterday in the Italian port of Livorno by its godmother, former NASA astronaut Dr. Anna Fisher.

The 47,800-ton ship was named Orion in recognition of her work on the NASA's Orion exploration vehicle project. There was also a surprise onboard in connection with her work in space.

The complete story appeared in the June 15 edition of Cruise News Daily.
