Viking Grace welcomes five millionth passenger

29 March 2017

A little less than a week ago, on 23rd March 2017, Viking Line’s lovely smaller ship the Viking Grace celebrated welcoming five million cruise guests - only four years after making her debut in the Baltic Sea as the world’s first cruise ferry running on LNG fuel.

After being launched in January 2013 the ship has focused on sailings between Turku in Finland and Stockholm in Sweden.

The five millionth cruise guest was honoured with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, compliments of the vessel’s master, Turku’s mascot and terminal manager Ville Viking. Every other passenger on board received a free glass of sparkling wine.

Viking Line’s regional manager, Riikka Arola, said that five million cruise guests in four years was a sterling performance, and they would like to warmly thank all their passengers for that. It felt good, Arola added, that such a large number of individuals have enjoyed cruising with them on the most stylish cruise ship in the Baltic Sea.

He went on to say: “Our investment in environmental sustainability, quality restaurants, unique shopping options and luxurious comfort has clearly been noted, and Viking Grace has found a place in people’s hearts.”

The cruise line also contributed money to a project working for the protection of the Baltic Sea for the five-millionth cruise guest who bought a ticket.

The Viking Grace is powered by LNG and employs a groundbreaking energy recirculation technique which converts surplus heat from its engines into emissionless electricity. In April next year she will also get a rotary sail so she can transform wind power into propulsion power.
