Fincantieri floated out Viking's second expedition ship, Viking Polaris, at their VARD shipyard in Soviknes, Norway, yesterday, marking the first time the ship has touched water.
Because the ship was designed for polar operation, it has some unique design features which can be seen in the photo below.
The complete story appeared in the July 28 edition of Cruise News Daily.
