Joining our European fleet in 2009, Viking Legend carries 188 guests on some of our most popular itineraries. This extraordinary vessel has two 337-square-foot suites and 97 staterooms, with French Balcony staterooms on the upper and middle decks and standard staterooms with picture windows on the main deck. With good deck height, Viking Legend is similar to Viking Sun and Viking Helvetia, but has a slightly sleeker shape for ultimate flexibility. Best of all, Viking Legend is a “green” ship, with hybrid diesel-electric engines producing 20% fewer emissions and reduced noise/vibration.
