While standing on the ship’s bow, Karine Hagen, the godmother of Viking Sea, cut the ribbon with a Viking axe that sent the bottle smashing against the ship’s hull christening the vessel.

Immediately following the christening, fireworks were shot off celebrating Viking Ocean Cruises christening their second ocean cruise ship.
