The Viking Saturn Naming Ceremony

Hosted by Alastair Miller and his guests Sissel Kyrkjebø and Tor Jaran Apold

On June 6, 2023, Viking named its newest identical ocean ship, the Viking Saturn, during a special ceremony in New York City. As part of the event, the ship’s ceremonial godmother, Ann Ziff, the esteemed philanthropist and Chairman of the Metropolitan Opera, a longtime Viking cultural partner, offered a blessing of good fortune and safe sailing for the ship—a naval tradition that dates back thousands of years.
