Viking will expand its river fleet in Southeast Asia with the addition of the new Viking Tonle. Designed for the Mekong River, the 80-passenger vessel will join its identical sister ship, the Viking Saigon, which deputed in 2022, and will sail between Kampong Cham, Cambodia and My Tho, Vietnam.
The ship is under construction and is scheduled to debut in October 2025. To meet the growing demand for Mekong River voyages, Viking has added sailing dates in 2025 and opened the entire 2026 season for booking.
"The rich history and culture of Vietnam and Cambodia have always made the Mekong River a fascinating destination for our guests," said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking. "With the addition of an identical sister ship in 2025, we look forward to introducing even more curious travelers to the treasures of this fantastic region in the years to come."
Like its sister ship, Viking Tonle will accommodate 80 guests in 40 outside staterooms. It will feature the Scandinavian design for which Viking is known and all staterooms will have floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors with a veranda or French balcony. The three-deck ship will also have a spa and fitness center, pool, and an open-air Sky Bar.
